Times Herald, Carroll, la. O Monday, April 1 Markets CHICAGO (AP) — Farm commodity futures prices fell sharply on the Chicago Board of Trade today. Wheat and soybeans were down around 15 cents a bushel, corn SVa cents and oats the limit of 6 cents. Soybean oil fell 50 points while soybean meal was down $2 a ton. Iced broilers eased '/a cent a pound on selling linked with a general downtrend in hog and cattle futures. The early demand for commodities in the soybean com- plex.appeared to be a carryover from late Friday. However, when this mixed demand had been satisfied some new selling set in, also of a mixed nature. As prices fell in soybeans and in oil much stop-loss selling developed. Despite some early weekend export business in the complex, there were reports that the end-products were lower in this country and abroad. Agriculture Secretary Butz was quoted over the weekend as saying that the expected record production of grains this year will lead to lower prices. The selling of wheat, corn and oats futures was very active from the opening bell, largely on the basis of this bearish statement.
