Per Cap if a Civilian Consumption ..and the road hack up won't be easy This chart pictures one of Iowa's postwar jobs--for three out of four Iowa farms depend on cream-checks to provide an important share of their ready-cash income ... and, in normal times, those cream-checks depend on America's preference for butter. Although fanners have held milk-pro-- duction up to near-record levels, butter-output has been reduced by diversion 'of milk and cream to other uses--some of a temporary wartime nature. Consumers, unable to get all the butter they want, have been encouraged to use something else instead. So lovra and Iowa farmers are naturally concerned with this vital question: When war- demands are over and more butter is again available for civilian use, how long will it take for America's per capita use of butter to return to pre-war levels or higher, and thus provide s steady, profitable market for Iowa's dairy output? After the last war, it took seven long years. To see that America's demand for butter is maintained, and is increased as soon as supplies permit--that .is one of the vital jobs which Iowa farmers are doing through the Iowa Dairy Industry Commission and the American Dairy Association. Both now and in the post-war era, it is a job of basic value to the welfare of the entire state.
