i Quotatioas 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.
Quotations refer to the 15th of the month as reported by Wisconsin and United
States
price reporters. Annual pricms, exrept the Wisconin farm butter price, are
weighted

for whole

the output
Is manufactured.

Preliminary.
levels of pasture condition, milk and
egg production were reported at the
beginning of June. The winter wheat
crop was estimated at about 400 mil-
Ioc, bushels whieh while a little above
the extremely poor crop of last year is
37 per (isclt ulnlder thi f-yiar average.
The tot al wheat production      is esti-
mated   at about Gtl0 i illilol bushels

1 - of milk eows per farm     the total
10 ilt production level is fully 30 per
cent below last year at this time. Al-
though milk production per cow is rel-
atively low for June 1, the increase
fIrom May 1 to June 1, as indlcated by
Crop reporters, was about the same as
tIhe usual Increase for this time of the
year. The level of production, however,
is much lower for the season.
With pastuore conditions the lowest
iln the 69 yearls for which records have
t een kept, cattle were receiving no
te*ed from pasture in some cases and
the average pCecenltage of feed from
pasture was rleported at 12 per cent
less than on the same (late last year.
This is a measure of only the propor-
tion of feed front pasture and not of
the qtiantity of f-ed being supplied
lailry cattle.  Grain and concentrate
feeding is normally at a low level at
this thne of the year and this condi-
lion prevails daiting the present siason.
