I For monthly quotations prior to 1932 and detailed information reearding
sources on all
commodities exnept condensed milk and milk used for butter, see Bulletins
90, 120, and
140, Wisconsin Crop and Livestock Reporting Service.
Quotations are the average for the month as reported by Wisconsin erop correspondents.
Annual averagems are computed by weighting monthly data by milk production
per cow.
Quotations refer to the 15th of the month as reported by Wisconin and United
States
price reporters. Annual prices. enreet the Wisconsin farm butter price, are
weighted
avrrage¶ of monthly data  For the U.S. milk for fluid wse is the chief
outlet for whole
milk old, hence the U. S. farm price enceeds Wisconsin where the bulk of
the output
is manufactured.
All annual quatatiols are straight averages of mo)thly prices.
