 Ubnrevised
period farm prices gradually declined
while prices paid by Wisconsin farm-
ers for items bought for farm pro-
duction and family living steadily in-
creased, The purchasing power of the
Wisconsin farm dollar in July was
98 percent of the 1910-14 average,
which is about 5 percent above the
June level and a little more than 3
percent higher than July 1949.
For the nation, generally higher
prices in July for most farm products
resulted in the sharpest monthly in-
crease in the index of prices received
by farmers since March 1947 and the
July farm  product p1-ice index was
nearly 7 percent above a year earlier.
