News From Other Areas

IOWA MILK ORDER
Changes that would mean reduced transporta-
tion costs for milk handlers are proposed in a
U.S. Department of Agriculture final decision
to amend the Iowa federal milk marketing order.
This decision still must be approved by
dairy farmers operating under the order. The
department's Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS)
will poll cooperatives in the market to deter-
mine if the necessary two-thirds approve the
amended order.
One proposed change would allow the di-
rector of AMS' Dairy Division to temporarily
increase or decrease supply plant shipping
standards.
Another proposed change would allow unit
pooling for distributing plants. This pro-
posed change should enable handlers to save on
accounting as well as transportation costs.
A third proposed change would amend the
definition of the term "handler" to simplify
reporting procedures for a cooperative associ-
ation that moves producer milk to both its own
pool plants and pool plants of other handlers,
or that diverts milk from both types of plants.

UPPER MIDWEST MILK ORDEP
The suspension of certain partial payment
provisions under the Upper Midwest federal
milk marketing order has been extended through
April 1980.
The suspension has been in effect since
November 1976, and was due to expire at the
end of April.
The action, supersedes the requirement
that handlers make a (Continued on page 6)

partial payment to producers
by the 25th day of the month
for milk delivered during the
first 15 days of the month.
The suspension continues to
be limited only to producers
who don't have their payments
collected by a cooperative.
Final payment for the month
is still due by the 18th day
of the following month.

The Upper Midwest order,
with the partial payment pro-
visions, went into effect
following a 1976 merger and
expansion of four midwestern
orders. Many of the pro-
ducers under the new order,
particularly those in Wis-
consin, were accustomed to
receiving their payment 15
days apart and objected to
the new payment dates. Under
the prior suspensions,
handlers have continued to
make partial payments to
producers, but at about 15
days before the date of
final settlement.

MIDDLE ATLANTIC MILK
ORDER

Effective May 1 the
Middle Atlantic federal milk
marketing order will be
amended to revise certain
provisions regarding milk
eligible for pooling.

The amended order re-
duces the pooling standards
for both distributing plants
and reserve processing
plants and permits a federa-
tion of cooperative associa-
tions to operate a pool
reserve processing plant.
It also increases the number
of day's milk production of
a producer that may be di-
verted to nonpool plants when
it is not needed for fluid
use at a distributing plant.


Farm Costs and Prices*


PRICES RECEIVED INDEX UP 5 POINTS
PRICES PAID INDEX UP 5 POINTS

The March Index of Prices Received by Farmers increased
5 points (2 percent) to 246 percent of its January-December
1967 average, according to the Crop Reporting Board. Con-
tributing most to the increase since February were higher
prices for cattle, calves, and eggs. Lower prices for hogs
and lettuce were partially offsetting. The index was 46
points (23 percent) above a year ago.
The Index of Prices Paid by Farmers for Commodities
and Services, Interest, Taxes and Farm Wage Rates for March
15 was 243, up 5 points (2 percent) from mid-February.
Higher prices for feeder livestock, tractors and self-
propelled machinery, fertilizer, other farm machinery and
family living items accounted for most of the increase. The
March index was 29 points (14 percent) above a year earlier.
The Ratio of the Index of Prices Received to the
Index of Prices Paid, including Interest, Taxes and Farm
Wage Rates was 101 for the month of March 1979. The ratio
was unchanged from the previous month and up 8 points from
the same period a year ago.
