MONDAY, SKPTKM15RK 1, 19.17 UI-YTHKVIU,K (AUK.) COUU1KR NKWS Farmer's Costs At Record High Feed Prices Soar But Produce Sells At Level for July WASHINGTON, Sept, 1. I UP) — The Agriculture Department reported today that farmers' costs hit. a new all-time peak during the montli ended A«t' 15. The Increase stemmed principally from higher feed prices and a Rcn- cral rise in farm living costs. The index of prices yald by farmers no'.v is 16 per cent above n year ago. Meanwhile, prices received by far- mcrs remained at the July level. Higher prices for feed, truck crops, meal animals and dairy products offset shaip drops in the prices of fruit and cotton. As a result, lite farm parity index jumped two per cent to a new high of 235. Parity is the measure of the farmers' expenses against his Income as compared v.'ith the period 1910-H." During 'August, farmers received 27(i per cent, ol whni they received during the base period while their expenses were 235 per cent of Uie 1910-H average. This means farm prices received still were 11 points above parity. Clothing price increases contributed most to higher August farm living costs. Household goods, automobiles, furniture and building mii- lenals also were sharply higher. Currently unsatisfactory corn prospects were chiefly responsible for increases both in prices received and prices paid for feed. Corn prices recently have been rising steadily. Slow demand for the record grape crop and a seasonal increase in shipments of apples, peais, and peaches caused most of the drop in the index of fruit prices. An eight per cent rise in butterfat prices was responsible for the larger-than-scasonal hike in dairy , prices. Butterfat prices at 73.3 cents a pound were the highest on record.
