Fluid On The Farm Front (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By GAY LORD P. GODWIN United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The (Agriculture Department is experiencing some difficulty in estimating the size of the cotton surplus, or carryover, as of next Aug. 1, start of the 1965-66 cotton marketing year. The estimate of the size of this year's crop keeps going up. This upsets the educated guesses on the size of next year's surplus. The first estimate of the 1964 crop was made in August. At that time, the Crop ^Reporting Board predicted 14.8 million bales of cotton would he. produced. A little later the department predicted a domestic and foreign use of cotton during the 1964-65 marketing year would equal this year's group volume. Such a- standoff would leave undisturbed the 12.4 million bales carried over from the 1963-64 marketing year. But in the. September crop report the 1964 production estimate was up to 14.9 million bales. In October, the estimate was . up to 15.3 million bales. And Monday, the November report had the crop at 15.4 million bales. There may be still another increase with compilation of the December report, With estimated use—both foreign and domestic—unchanged, the carryover as of Aug. 1965, should go up more than a'', half million bales. <r Monday's report showed this ! year's crop would total at least 15,444,000 bales, up 117,000 bales from the 1963 crop. The yield is a record 528 .pounds of lint per acre, compared with 516 pounds in 1963. j The Crop Reporting Board said range feed conditions worsened during October as only light scattered rains were received throughout the western range area. , t . ' The board said moisture shortages reduced the palatability of cured forage the pas} month. Ranges in some western sec* tions continued to supply ade» quate forage to maintain livestock but in other sections I range forage supplies were ex- \ hausted. Supplemental feeding I became more widespread in j areas where range fed sup- \ plies were short. 3 The board said fall cattle ] marketings were lagging slight- '• ly behind a year earlier. Sheep ' marketing and contracting were running somewhat ahead of a.i year ago. ^ • • ,i j Advertise In The Tribune Boxes TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE
