Quotations are the average for the month as reported by Wisconsin erop correspondents.
Ariiinial averages are computed by vweighting monthly data by milk production
per cow.
Quotations refer to the 15th of the month us reported by Wisconsin and United
States
priee reporters. Annual prices, except the Wisconsin farm butter price, are
weighted

outlet for whole
milk sold, hence the U. S. farm price exceeds Wisconsin where the hulk of
the output
is manufactured.
All annual quotations are straight averages of monthly prices.

add smaller acreage devoted to crops, the
farni value of the crops is substantially
larger thaan it has been In the preceding
two years, the aggregate value of Wiscon-
sins crops in 1934 being estimated at
nearly $178,000,000 as compared with less
than $123,000,000 in 1933 and $97,000,000 in
1932.
Fariss Stocks of Grain
Farnm stocks of grain as estimated by
the United States Cro7p Reporting Board
for January I are at extremriely low levels.
Farm stocks of corn are about 57 percent
of a year ago and less than half of the
stocks of two years aglo. Wheat stocks
are 69 percest of a year ago and about
half of the stocks of two years ago.
Stocks of oats are ahbout three-fourths Io
a year ago but only about 45 percent o1
the stocks of two years iigi.
In Wisconsin eorn stocks tIhis year are
hbout three-fourths of what they were a
yeir ago, and the stocks of barley ared
oats are larger than last year. The 1934
produrtion of oats and barley in Wiscon-
sin was above the very polor crop of 1933.
but the stocks this ye:u r are considerably
belbw viveratge.
January Dairy Report
With a decrease in the number of milk
cows per farm of between 4 and 5 percent
and a decline of about 5 percent in the
milk production per cow in herd, it ap-
pears that the daily milk production in
Wisconsin as indicated by crop and dairy
uCorrespondents is about 10 percent less
than at this time last year. On January 1
the milk production per cow in herd, as
reported by crop correspondents, of 12.54
poutnds was the lowest milk production on
that date since the record began in 1925,
and was 12 perient less than the 1925-1932
aiverage for Jancary 1.
While the annual livestiuck survey and
other indications, whers cuimpleted. will
irsdicate more definitely the total milk pro-
luctiuon of the state in 1934. at the present
lint it appears that Wisconsin milk pro-
iiction in 1934 was about 5 percent less
than in 1933. This brings the state's milk
Producition to about 10,280,000,000 pounds
for last year as compared with 10.825,000.-
000 pounds in 1933 and the 1925 to 1932
:average of 10,684.000,000 pounds.
For the United States milk production
)PIr 'ow in the herds of crop correspond-
ents on January 1. was 10.88 pounds. a
decline of 5 percent from a year earlier
and a 10 percent decline from the 1925-
1932 January 1 average. This is the low-
est average production per cow for any
month since the records began. As the
number of milk cows is probably 4 to 5
sercent lower than a year ago, the total
daily milk flow is estimated at 9 or 10
percent less.
The accompanying table gives the Janu-
aty I milk production figures as reported
by (crop correspondents for Wisconsin and
the United States.
Feeding of grain and concentrates about
the first of the month was considerabtly
less than a year ago. Wisconsin dairy re-
porters indicated a decline of 20 percent in
the amount of such feed given per cow In
herd as compared with 12 months earliert.
While this IY a decided decline it does
represent a relative increase since on De-
uember I the decline in feeding operatlions
as icompared with a year earlier was even
greater.
The December I indication of more
calves being raised than a year ago was
eonlinuerd in the January reports. Tt aW
