.'.; Zz | .. .-, ^ .-., ^j A-16 Alton Evening Telegraph Thursday. August 31, 1972 Hog and wheat prices higher ill August but cattle drops By DON KENDALL WASHINGTON (AP) Higher prices for hogs and wheat helpwi boost over-all farm prices 1.0 per cent in August to another record high average, but cattle prices dropped sharply, the Agriculture Department announced Wednesday. Wheat prices, soaring be cause of huge export sales to the Soviet Union and other demands, averaged SI .51 per bushel, compared with ?1.32 in July and $1.28 in August last. year. Hogs, reflecting sharp cutbacks by producers, averaged a record $28 per hundredweight at mid-August, up 50 cents from (lie previous high in July. A year earlier they were $18.SO. But cattle, which includes all types from bulls to cows, dropped to $33.50 per hundredweight, by mid-August, down from the record $34.GO in July. A year earlier they were $29.30. The Crop Reporting Hoard said higher prices for milk, lettuce and grapefruit also helped boost Hie average, but that lower prices were reported for broilers, celery, eggs. sweet potatoes, strawberries and oranges. Compared with a year ago, the August index was 13 per cent higher. It was 325 per cent of an historical 1910-14 "prices received" base, the highest on record. Rut farm expenses — which have risen almost consistently — held steady in August at a record high, the same as in July but six per cent more than a year ago, the department said. The "parity ratio" based on the 1010-14 formula was 75 per cent in August, the same as a month earlier but six points higher than in August last, year. ' WASHINGTON (AP) - The Agriculture Department, lowered export subsidies for wheat six cents a bushel this week in an effort to cool off domestic prices and heavy buying for overseas markets. Officials late Wednesday announced a rate of 32 cents per bushel for hard red winter wheat shipped from Gulf and Eastern ports. Late last week and on Monday the subsidy was 38 cents. The department served notice on exporters last Friday the government could no longer guarantee a fixed export price for U.S. wheat. The subsidies are paid to exporters to make up the difference between the U.S. price and what the grain has been selling for on the U.S. market. Since large wheat sales began to the Soviet Union last month, the export subsidies increased sharply as U.S. market prices rose.' Now. officials say, if the domestic market continues to rise exporters can expect to charge more on the world market because of the tougher subsidy policy. \ '«*rr 98c Value Style 13 Oz.
