Dairymen Will Probably Find
Winter Most Profitable
Since 1930 -
LARGE FEED GROWTH
Dairymen will probably find the
winter of 1937-38 one of their
most profitable since 1930, A. C.
Kimrey, of State College, said in
forecasting the North Carolina
He explained that the produc
tion of feed grains and hay in
1937 has been large in relation to
livestock numbers and that feed
prices during the current feeding
season will average decidedly less
than a year earlier.
Kimrey also pointed out that
milk production per cow is likely
to average the highest since the
winter of 1931-32. An increase of
three to five per cent from Octo
ber through next May over the
like preceding period is expected.
Most of this will occur after the
first of the year.
In numbers, milk cows this win
ter will probably average about
the same as last winter. There
may even be a slight increase,
Feed prices already are lower in
relation to dairy products, and in
the next few months, feeds will
be at a much greater advantage
than they were last winter.
The number of milk cows,
which is.nov/ six per cent less
than the peak of four years ago.
appears to have passed the low
point, the State College extension
dairyman said. However, the num
ber is still somewhat below av
erage in proportion to population.
If the price of cattle continues
high, as now seems probable, a
point may be reached soon when
large numbers of farmers will be
gin to hold back breeding stock to
increase their her's. This would
reduce the market' lgs of sows and
heifers, Kimrey said, and support
or probably increase prices.
