growing conditions are average!
or better. Livestock production]
will likely increase in 1961.
Cattle prices in 1961 probably
will continue to decline under the
impact of larger marketings and :
result in some further decline in
cash receipts from cattle.
A continued stable cost sit
uation is indicated for 1961. The
.general easing of inflationary
pressures suggest little price
change in the coming year for
production items purchased by
farmers from the nonfarm sec
tor of the economy.
Total cash receipts from farm
marketings in 1961 may be about
the same as 1960. Receipts from
livestock and products are not
expected to be much different
from this year.
