I For monthly quotations prior to 1932 and detailed information regarding
sources on all
commodities except condensed milk and milk used for butter, see Bulletins
90, 120, and
140, Wisconsin Crop and Livestock Reporting Service.
2 Quotations are the average for the month as reported by Wisconsin crop
correspondents.
Annual averages are computed by weighting monthly data by milk production
per cow.
3 Quotations refer to the 15th of the month as reported by Wisconsin and
United States
price reporters. Annual prices, except the Wisconsin farm butter price, are
weighted
averages of monthly data. For the U. S. milk for fluid use is the chief outlet
for whole
milk sold, hence the U. S. farm price exceeds Wisconsin where the bulk of
the output
is manufactured.
4 All annual quotations are straight averages of monthly prices.
5 Wholesale price o' 92-score butter at Chicago.

The shepl) population isl Wisconisii
is of less impllortanlii'e than of the other
livestoiik classes which we have dis-
c ussed. It is estimated that there al'
465,000 head of sheep in the state+ this
yeas of which 390,000 head are stock
sheep. There are about 1,00(1) head of
sheep more in the state than at yeir
ago, though the number of stock sh'ee
is about 11,000 head larger than last
year.
Fior the  sinit('d States the livestock
sivesitory shows increases in the num-
ber of cattle but decreases in all of
the other species. According to the es-
timates of the United States 'lrop lBe-
porting Board the number of animal
units on farms of the nation is about
the same as a year ago. The farm
value of the nation's livestock is up
about 7 per cent.   As in Wisconsin
horses and mules in spite of declining
numbers show   an increase in value.
Tike Wisconsin, other states show
somewhat more colts raised (luring 1933
than in other recent years.  The ds'-
mand for horses apparesitly is stuc h
that prices are rising the country over.
The cattle population isl the Unite'd
States is increasing though the ralt' of
increase has declined. The total cattle
populatiosl of the nation is estimated
at 67,352,)00 head which is all increase
of 2.8 per cesat overI last year. The
sausuber of milk cows shows an in-
crease of over 3 per cent and has this
year ex'cieded the 26 million mark for
the first timite. The  sumber of milk
heifers for the country as a whole is
only about on5e1 per cent larger than
it was a year ago, and is sstimoat'd at
4,749,000 head.
The swine population fos the nation
is over 5 million head smaller than
a year ago, and is estisuated at 55,-
976,000 head. The number of sheep is
only slightly below a year ago and the
estimated total is 51,374,000 head. The
estimated value of the nation's live-
stock is $2,854,217,000 which is an In-
crease of nearly 7 per cent over a year
ago. It is of special Interest to note
that this increase Is entirely due to the
inci easing value of horses, mules, and
sheep, cattle and swine showing de-
-r'ases in the inventory values.
