the exception of two groups, the fruits
and vegetables group which remained
steady, and  the  unclassified  group
which declined 3 points from June to
July. The cash crop group led the in-
creases with a 7 point upturn. Grain,
livestock, and poultry products all fol-
lowed with substantial increases.
The Wisconsin farm plrice index in-
creased 1 point from 75 percent of pre-
war in June to 76 percent in July. The
Wisconsin f a r m purchasing power
move.d up I point from 61 on June 15
to 62 on July 15. This is 10 points be-
low the July high of one year ago but
1 point above the corresponding indexes
for the past two months.
For the second consecutive, month the
United States farm price index in-
creased more rapidly than the Wiscon-
sin farm price index rising from 77 per-
cent of pre-war in June to 80 percent
paid for commodities farmers buy. 'Preliminary.
for July. This is the highest point it
has attained since June 1931. The pres-
ent level Is 4 points above the Wiscon-
sin index. This rise in the United
States farm price index resulted from a
gain in all commodity groups with the
exception of fruits and vegetables
which showed a marked decline. Cot-
ton and cottonseed and poultry prod-
ucts showed the greatest increases.
While the index of dairy products
prices declined in this state, it in-
creased slightly for the country as a
whole to 1 point above the figure for
the previous month.
With the United States index of re-
tail prices paid by farmers remaining
steady at 122 percent of pre-war, their
purchasing power increased 3 points
along with the index of farm prices, to
66 percent of pre-war which Is the
highest level it has reached since July
1933.
