["-[ STILL GOING UP CATTLE NUMBERS On Jan. 1, 1960, the cattle inven- tory in this country totaled 101.5 million head, up 4,870,000 from Jan. I a year ago, and the first time in 93 years of record that Janu- a~'y cattle numbers exe~ded 100 million. Most of the increase in cattle munbers in 1959 was in beef cattle although for the first time in six years there was a gain in the num- ber of milk cattle The hog inven- tory Jan. 1, at 58.5 million head was up 3 per cent from 1958, but vcell below the all-time peak o g3.7 million had Jan. 1, 1944. The total number of sheep and lambs on farms and ranches increased 2 per cent during 1959 to 33.6 million head Jan. 1. This is the largest inven- tory since Jan. 1, 1948, .but less that for any year before 1948, back te 1867, the first year records were kept. A total of 543,205 head of steers and heifers wa~ marketed out of first hands for slaughter at 12 im- portant livestock markets during February, according to latest Crop Reporting Board figures. This is 27 per cent increase over February 1959. Of the total, steer market- ings at 401,995 head were up 2~ per cent, and heifers, at 141,210 head. were up 33 per cent from February a year ago. Steers and heifers grading prime and choice made up 48 per cent of the mark- eting for slaughter, compared with 40 per cent in February 1959. '"rhe total number of cattle and calves on hand J~n. I, 1960, in North Dakota was only 1 per cent over 1959", says Harry G. Ander- son, NDAC agricultural economist. "A total of 1.899.000 head ranked North Dakota 23rd among the cat. tle states. "An increase of three per cent i.

Milk cow numbers were down r little more than 3 per cent, a trend begun a few years ago. North Da- kota ranked 17th in beef cattle and calves. "Sheep and lamb numbers which have increased In recent years de- clined about 1.5 per cent. This in- ventory number includes sheep and lambs on feed a~ well as stock sheep and lambs. The loss of a large packing establishment would ac- count for a large part of this re- duction in numbers. But drouth, in certain are'as of the state the past two years has had its effect. NortV Dakota farmers could well resume their trend upward in sheep and lambs numbers when weather con- ditions are more conducive."

M.J. Ratzlaff, director of th~ state laboratory, said the bulletin, were mailed to manufacturers whos~ products were made under the juris- diction of the department. Bulletin No. 125, "Food and Drug", reports on butter, oleomargarine, ice cream, hamburger, prepared meats, honey, drugs, vitamin prepa- rations, water analysis, non-alcoho- lic beverages, and aleoholiz bevera- ges. No. 126, "Commercial Feeds, Com- mercial Fertilizers and Pesticides," gives the rundown on poultry feeds, dairy and stock feds, swine feeds, dog and eat foods, registered ferti- lizers, insecticides, insecticide-fun- gicides, rodenteides, and-aerial ap- plication of pesticides. The third bulletin, No. 127, "Pe- troleum Products and Anti-Freeze', deals with specifications, tests of peroleum products, lubricating oils. is a special section on anti-freeze in- spection. Copies of the three bulletins are available from the state laboratories department in Bismarck. Copies for out-of-state requests sell for $1 each. In-state requests are free. OUTLOOK FOR FARM PRICES "PERKS UP" The outlook for agriculture the remainder of 1960 appears some- what brighter than it did last fall, reports Harry G. Anderson, exten- sion agricultural economist at ND- AC. Prices received between Decem- ber and mid-March increased 5 per cent due chiefly to high prices for hogs, cattle, broilers and eggs. Dur- ing the rest of 1960, prices are ex- pected to average the same or even some better than for the same period in 19~9, the economist says. The main factor affecting the price and income outlook for the rest of 1960 are (1) heavy total sup- ply situation with surpluses of some crops, but with reduced hog and egg production likely, (2) a strong and growing demand for food and other farm products as our popula- tion and economy expands, and (3) continued high exports of U. S. farm products. As to prospects for production in 1960, this will depend mostly on weather during the coming growing I and havesting seasons. So far, mois- ture conditions have been very good althot~gh spring field work was somewhat later than usual. There is also an underlying uptrend in yields reflecting advancing crop technology Anderson belives per capita red meat supplies may be slightly below 1959 as a result of smaller pork production. Cattle marketings, de- spite herd build-up the past two years, are expected to increase mod- erately for the rest of the year. However, the buildup in cattle num- bers could bring some difficult gasoline, kerosene, tractor fuel, heat- marketing problems in some future ing oil and diesel fuel inspection, period. test results for each manufacturer, I Hog marketings later this year will and statistics on gallonage by com-lbe reduced considerably from 1959 panies, grades and towns.
