over 1.1 billion eggs-6.4 percent un-
der that period last year. It was
about 17 percent below average. July
egg production was under July last
year as a result of both lowered layer
numbers and production per layer.
The nation's July egg output was
slightly under July 1960 but was over
3 percent above the July average.
There was practically no change in
layer numbers from  a year earlier
while the laying rate was ver'y
slightly less. Consequently July total
egg output was just under July last
year. Nationally, January through
July egg production was 2 percent
below that same period last year and
1% percent below the average for the
seven-month period.
Farm Product Price
Index Up 2 Percent
Wisconsin's index of prices received
for products sold by farmers in July
showed increases of 2 percent from
June this year and July 1960.
Higher prices for milk and eggs
than a year ago more than offset de-
creases in the prices received for
meat animals and poultry. Wiscon-
sin's July index of prices received by
farmers was 253 percent of the 1910-
14 average. The index of prices paid
by farmers at 300 percent of the
1910-14 average showed no change
from June but was less than 1 per-
cent below the all-time July high of
last year.
Purchasing power of Wisconsin
farm products in July was 84 percent
of the 1910-14 average and showed
increases of 1 percent over the previ-
ous month and about 2 percent over
July last year.
Farm commodity index figures for
July show price increases over a year
ago of 6 percent for milk and 8 per-
cent for eggs but decreases of 4 per-
cent for meat animals, 17 percent for
poultry, and 1 percent for crops.
