a fourth larger than average.
The farm carry-over of old corn on
farms in the nation on October 1 was
estimated at 485 million bushels or
.31 percent less than last year's record
stocks of 708 million bushels. These
holdings of corn are 44 percent above
average. The nation's farmers have
somewhat larger stocks of oats, bar-
ley, and rye than a year ago. Stocks
of wheat are slightly smaller and
there is a substantial decrease in soy-
bean holdings.
Milk Production
Milk production on Wisconsin farms
in September was estimated at 1,150,-
(100,000 pounds, which is only slightly
more than the production during
September of last year but nearly 10
peicent above average for the month.

little below the first nine months of
last year.
Total milk production on farms in
the nation during September was
9,375,000,000 pounds. The September
production was slightly less than for
September last year but 2 percent
above average. For the first nine
months of this year, the nation's milk
production was a little above the cor-
responding period in 1949. The sea-
sonal decline in milk production from
August to September was a little
greater than a year ago.
Egg Production
Wisconsin farm flocks laid 159 mil-
lion eggs in September-the record
for the month. September egg pro-
duction was 12 percent higher

than the same month last year and
nearly 9 percent higher than the
5-year average for the month. Com-
pared with September a year ago this
increase in egg output was due both
to a larger number of layers on hand
and a record September rate of lay.
The number of layers on hand in
September was over 51/2 percent
greater than the same month a year
ago. September was the fourth suc-
cessve month in which the rate of lay
has been greater than the correspond-
ing month of last year.
Farm flocks in the nation produced
a record number of eggs in Septem-
ber that was over 8 percent above the
same month in 1949. The September
total was 131/2 percent higher than
the 5-year average for the month.
Although the September egg produc-
tion per layer was a record the in-
imary of the United States for October 1, 1950
