eggs in April-3 percent more than a
year ago, but 13 percent below aver-
age. The April output is down 2 per-
cent from March. Egg production for
the first one-third of this year is 1
percent above the same period last
year, but 14 percent below average.
Farm Purchasing Power
Declines During April
Buying power of the farm dollar in
Wisconsin dropped to a two-year low
in April. At 80 percent of the 1910-14
average, the April index of purchas-
ing power for the state was 4 percent
below March and 5 pe cent below a
year ago.
The index of prices received by
Wisconsin farmers in April dropped
almost 4 percent from March and
over 4 percent from April 1961. Mean-
while, the Apiil index of prices paid
by state farmers was unchanged from
March, but was up slightly from a
year ago.
Contributing to the lower prices
farmers are receiving from April last
year are declines of 6 percent for
milk, 3 percent for meat animals and
2 percent for eggs. Crops and poultry
prices were higher than last April.
State's 1962 Maple Sirup
Production Above Average
Maple sirup production in Wiscon-
sin this year is smaller than last
year's bumper erop, but still consid-
erably above average. The state
slipped from third in output in the
nation a year ago, to fourth this year.
Maple sirup production in Wiscon-
sin this year is estimated at 98,000
gallons. The output is 7 percent below
last year's bumper crop, but 31 per-
cent above average. Producers in the
state were receiving $4.75 a gallon
for this spring output, compared to
$4.85 last year. Total value of the
1962 production is estimated to be
$466,000 or $43,000 less than a year
ago.
