dairy ration in February than a year
earlier.
Poultry ration costs averaged $24.97
per 1,000 pounds or $1.30 less than in
February 1949. With the sharp drop
in egg prices since the first of the
year, 10 dozen eggs would only buy
three-fourths of the poultry ration
they would have bought in February
of last year.
Total stocks of dried, condensed,
and evaporated milk in the nation at
the end of January were much
smaller than a year earlier. Stocks of
evaporated milk, case goods, at the
end of January were reported at
nearly 151l,2 million pounds compared

earlier.
