' . · The nation-has been eating more eggs than normal, due largely,to meat.rationing..This increased demand may be suffering to some extent from the reduction-in point requirements in meat rationing. This influence will be only temporary in Baker's opinion. Support prices can be expected t»»mrMti Ww 2* a»e Price ttr, tke war aWve 32 cento IB Iowa, Baker prtdlcU. In spite of this, he expects the egg-feed ratio for Iowa producers to continue less favorable than a year ago With egg prices about 6 cents per dozen below a year ago. and with feed costs up from 15; to 20 per cent it is likely that culling of unprofitable birds may offset the reduction in profits to some extent. . .-... .Some .support to the current price. may come : from anticipated heavier, buying by the war food attounistration, now that we are getting into.' the major' egg-drying period, as well as .'from heavier buying by the armed forces. ·· '." · · ' · « · ' - ' -. · · -, . .'
