By GAYLORD P. GODWIN United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Agriculture Department today warned poultry producers for the third time in five weeks of the economic consequences of a buildup in the supply of hens that lay hatching eggs. The department said "a prolonged price-depressing expansion in the broiler industry is likely this winter" if the rapid buildup under way in the egg - flocks continues. The agency estimated that pullet chick additions to flocks in April, May, and June already have created prospects for 10 per cent more layers in these flocks by November. The Personal Problemf? Let "Penny" Help. Write to "Penny" Care of Register-Mail "Penny" Appears Every Tuesday and Friday increased layers by their egg output will create more broiler-fryers for the spit or skillet late this year and early next. The department said broiler slaughter in August and September likely will be 5 to 10 per cent greater than a year earlier. Prices to farmers in the same period are likely to go "somewhat lower" than the year-earlier average of 15.6 cents per pound. The department made no estimate of the prices farmers likely would receive in the October-December quarter if the buildup continues. The warning was contained in the Agricultural Outlook Digest. Earlier, the agency had spoken of the economic consequences of over-production in a review of the poultry and egg situation and in a special statement at mid-year. The current outlook for other commodities: Cattle: Marketings likely will be about 9 per cent larger than a year earlier. Prices may hold near July levels in August and September, then rise somewhat in October-December. Hogs: Only a modest seasonal price drop likely in fall, with low point about like Jiast year. If hog numbers go upwn anticipated 1 per cent, and beef supplies con­ tinue plentiful, prices to farmers this winter may drop almost to last winter's low. Dairy: Milk production in remainder of 1963 may be close to that of comparable period a year ago. Improved commercial demand for milk may cause government purchases of milk equivalent to drop. Feed Grains: Supply in 1963-64 estimated at 210 million tons, down slightly from year earlier. Production in 1963 expected to be up from 1962, hut consumption will increase as long as livestock numbers increase. Wheat: Crop in l!X>;i may be down a per cent from 1957-61 average. Carryover on July 1, 1964, expected to be smallest since 1958. Soybeans: Demand continues strong, supplies will tighten before new-crop beans are available about mid - September. Farm prices expected to be strong throughout summer, about 10 per cent higher than year ago. Carryover on Oct. 1 may be only 15 million bushels—just a week's crushing and export needs. Vegetables: All important fresh vegetables except carrots and celery will be down from year earlier in next four to six weeks, while farm and retail prices probably will be higher.
