I For monthly quotations prior to 1932 and detailed information regarding
sources on all
commodities except condensed milk and milk used for butter, see Bulletins
90, 120, and
140, Wisconsin Crop and Livestock Reporting Service.
2 Quotations are the average for the month as reported by Wisconsin crop
correspondeits.
Annual averages are computed by weighting monthly data by milk production
per cow.
3 Quotations refer to the 15th of the month as reported by Wisconsin and
United States
price reporters. Aitnual prices, except the Wisconsin farm butter price,
are weighted
averagesofmnathlyddata  For the 13.S. milk for fluid use is the chief outlet
for whole
milk sold, hence the U. S. farm price exceeds Wisconsin where the bulk of
the output
is manufactured.
All annual quotations are straight averages of motihly prIces.
