I had the field has been narroweS By DON KENDALL AP.Farm Writer WASHINGTON (AP) _ Consumers got a little break at supermarkets last month as food prices dropped slightly, but it was all because farmers wound up with a smaller share of the consumer grocery dollar, according to the Agriculture Department. Unver prices for cattle, hogs arid fresh vegetables were main factors for a $5 decline in a market basket list of store- bought food, the amount theoretically needed by a typical family for a year. In March the market basket cost an annual rate of 51,292 compared with $1,297 in February, the -USDA announced Wednesday. The share farmers get was $502 compared with ?516 in February, a $14 drop. Meantime, costs- for transporting, processing and merchandising m a r k et basket food--the so-called "middleman" costs--increased $9 to $790 for March. Mathematically, that meant the farmer's share of the consumer food dollar dropped last month to 33.9 cents from the February level of 39.7 cents. Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Butz, who has defended farm prices against charges ihey are causing higher food costs-, said rising wages for workers are the main cause. "I'm paid," glad Bulz they told are well newsmen. "But, on the other hand, 1 think we have got our priorities mixed up when we pay butchers in Chicago twice what we pay school teachers." The middlemen--wholesalers and retailers--are not making excessive profits, Butz said. But costs are up and those are passed along the line to consumers. "If you look at meat packers, now," Butz said, "they are hard pressed. The competition is terrific," The market basket report showed the over-all retail cost of the item dropped 0.4 per cent in March, the' first decline since last October. WASHINGTON (AP) - Two sales teams will visit Europe and the P'ar East next month to promote U.S. cotton, the Agriculture Department announced Thursday. The tours be co-sponsored by Cotton Council International. One will seek sales opportunities i n B r i t a i n , France, The Netherlands, West Germany and Italy. Another will visit Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Both will leave about May 11 and return May 20, officials said. WASHINGTON (AP) -- Gross income from the sale of chick-lpared with $2.28 billion in 1970, ens, including broilers, and "'""'"'- "" A eggs last year dropped, sharply to about $3.46 billion from more t h a n $3.86 billion in 1970, says the Agriculture Department. Egg production was up two per cent in 1971 but prices were lower. Thai resulted in a gross last year of $1.875 billion corn- officials said. Broiler production was down but gross receipts totaled nearly $1.49 billion, up o'ne per cent from 1870 because of some price improvement. The 1971 gross from othei chickens was $90 million, compared with about $109 million in 1970, the department reported. Old Jeans?
