LavestocK and livestock products returns .were up 7 per cent While livestock, hay and grain prices reached higher levels in April and May, shipments of lettuce and most other vegetables were substantially under 1947 levels due in part to , delay from cold weather arid late rains. - California manufacturing employment declined from mid-March to mid-April to about 4 per cent under ihm ismi 1947 rr!od.
