There's no sure way, of course. 3ut T. E. Atkinson, economist for he A g r i c u l t u r a l Extension Ser- ·ire. t h i n k s producers can get pme strong indications by watching reports'on placement, of baby chirks on farms. These reports he said, can be obtained by writing to the Federal-State Crop Reporting Service in Little nock. "It takes 10 to 12 weeks to grow chicks to market size." Atkinson pointed nut "So if you know about how m a n y chicks are being placed on farms at a given time, you can get a good idea of what market supplies are goi.ij; to he a couple of months later." i - - HUM i in i i «· MIMI_ j j i J ! a b ' B su PP'y Is in prospect, rFrilk MayfiB of Johnson looks over the four polled Hereford? ind ih ,, , K *--·»»*·* chances are t h a t the price trend .Luther Johnson of Springdale.

And the situation could have been foreseen --at least to some extent -- by the heavy placements of baby chicks about 10 to 12 weeks earlier. Atkinson says t h a t economists at the University College of Agric u l t u r e have been studying broiler price variations for some time And they've found what seems to be a d e f i n i t e relationship between j chick placements a nd poultry prices.

The department d o r s - n n t look beyond t h a t daie-at least for publication.

This year placements ran high during 'the Ihree-week period from February " to March 1 -- which was 10 or weeks prior to the price drop. These cases are based on placements of chicks in Arkansas, Atkinson, said. He added, however, that peak U. S. placements coincided fairly well with those in Ar-' kansas -- and t h a t placements in olher areas tend to influence conditions in Arkansas. What about the weeks and months ahead? Atkinson believes sease been set weeks. Spray or dust cabbage tor worm control. Dust beans with cryolite to control bean leaf beetles. Side-dress garden with nitrogen.
