Wool Prices Expected To Continue Slight Drop By DON KENDALL AP Farm Writer · WASHINGTON (AP) - Woo prices paid farmers are expecl ed lo drop slightly next year b 'cause of rising competition from 'man-made fibers and a recorc world output, says the Agricul ture Department. Prices through the first nine months of 1969 have 1 averages 'about 4 per cent more than a year earlier bul are expecled k 'be "a shade below" Ihis in 1970 U.S.D.A. said. The department said U.S wool production next year is ex peeled lo conlinue the decline o the past decade, though proba 'bly at less than the 6 per ceni drop of 1969. Total shorn wool output this year was estimated at 167 mil lion pounds, grease basis. Mil use was estimated at 220 million .to 225 million pounds in 1969, compared with 238 million lasl - vear -. , "The decline in mill use reflects increased use of manmade fibers, a slower advance in consumer income, slightly higher raw wool prices and decreased deliveries to the mign- "ry," the department said in a report. Officials said, however, thai "some recovery" in total wool use by.textile mills is likely next year because of somewhat lower prices and an expected, rise in consumer demand for wool apparel.. Imports of apparel wool textiles during January-August were 12 per cent more than for the first eight months of 1968, the report said. Imports of raw wool, howev- ·er," dropped 29 per cent during January-August. For the year, the department said, raw wool ·imports probably will total 110 million to 115 million pounds, clean content, compared with lowan Named , ' Hereford Assoc. Head KANSAS CITY (AP) - Gene Wiese' of Manning, Iowa, was elected president of the American Hereford Association in the annual -business meeting held during t h e American R o y a l Livestock Show. Clarence Cross of Colquitt, Ga., was named vice president. Chosen directors were George Schlick'ali of Haven, Kan., and Alfred--Meeks, Taylor, Neb.

He was a member of an Iowa State University team Ihal won the American Royal intercollegiate- livestock judging contest 20 years ago. Dr. W. T. Berry Jr., executive secretary of the association, told about 1,000 members at the meeting that the industry should go ahead with plans for -expansion because Ihe lax outlook was more favorable. "We are convinced the final tax reform bill will be fair," Berry said. "It will not discourage the legitimate operator, even though it will discourage the short range 'inner and out- 130 million in 1968. The smaller oulput of wool reflects a longtime downlrend in the number of U.S. sheep and lambs. Officials estimated 21.1 million head on farms last Jan. 1, compared with 22.1 million a year earlier. Sheep and lamb production rose during Ihe late 1950s and Agriculture Department has au totaled 03.2 million in 1969, but have declined steadily each year since.

Also excluded were the Minneapolis-St. Paul and Mississip- )i orders to allow for other administrative considerations. A spokesman said proposed amendments would be . offered or the four remaining order areas "within a relalively short ime." Federal milk marketing orders set minimum prices which handlers and processors must pay dairymen.

In future monlhs they may be expected to soar again. During three days of hearings icld by a study group of Ihe louse government operations committee last week, this pic- ure emerged: Beef prices began lo rise last April, because of a shortage of supply due lo livestock losses during the very rugged precious winter in the western corn belt and mountain stales. The harsh weather also slowed the rate of weighl gain of feed cattle. For Ihe four monlhs Mav June, July and August, the beef consuming public's demand exceeded supply and prices soared. Beef production will probably be able lo meel demand for the resl of the year. But, Herrell Degraff, president of the American Meat Institute, told (he studies subcommittee beef prices will have to rise in (he monlhs ahead if supply is to keep up with an expanding population and increased consumption of beef. Americans ate 63.4 pounds of beef per person in 1950. By this year Ihe per capila consumpt on had reached 110.5 pounds. "With all due sympathy for their problems, I have to say lo consumers that on a continuing basis they cannot have both Policemen Punished For Decorum Breach WARREN, R.I.

It was exhibited by Brunner, who also won Reserve Champion in the female breeding beef class. Both are members of the NJC Aggies which sponsored Ihe exposition. the beef supply they seem to want and the level of beef prices they-seem to want," Degraff said. While consumers have complained that beef prices are too high, cattlemen have complained that they are too low. They too, are hurt by inflation and say they cannot increase their herds at the present beef price level. Should they decide to enlarge their breeding herds, an increased supply mil not reach the slaughterhouses until late in 1971, because takes nine months to geslale and 18 months to Teed an animal up to market weight. At the same time, spokesmen indicate, veal prices will remain ligli. In former years, the calves of dairy cattle reached the market as veal. But in- creased efficiency of milk pro duction has resulted in fewer cows to mother calves. As Rep. John S. Monagan (D- Conn.) and members of his group questioned representa lives of various segments of the meat industry they were unable to account for every penny o" the American family's beef dol lar. The cattlemen said they ge CO cents; the processors said they get a dime and the retailers said they get about- a quarter, making only a penny profit on that 25 cents. This adds up to 95 cents. Rep. John W. Wydlcr (R-N Y.) said he was determined lo find the missing nickel in the hopes of having it returned lo Ihe housewife. Department of Agriculture statistics for last June, riurinj, which the retail price of bee per pound reached a round dol lar. showed that Ihe farmer go 67.7 cenls; the wholesaler, 22.L cents and the grocer, 10 cents Several spokesmen said thai housewives' boycotts have virtually no effect on meat prices.
