EVAPORATED MILK PRODUCTION NEAR PEAK FOR SEASON


Except for changes in production and
supplies, the evaporated milk situation continues
about the same as a month ago, according to re-
ports received by the Bureau of Agricultural
Economics from manufacturers. The supply changes
are partly seasonal in nature, for at this time
of the year, thero are normally increases in pro-
duction, as well as a tendency for manufacturers
to carry heavier inventories.

Stocks in the hands of manufacturers on
June 1 amounted to 242,000,000 pounds, an in-
crease of 100,000,000 pounds over Juno 1, 1936,
and 80,000,OCO pounds above the previous month.
The increase during May in the five year period,
1932-36, inclusive, was only 56,000,000 pounds.
The June 1 relationship with a year earlier is
about the same as that which had existed during
the last several months, for throughout 1937
manufacturers have carried much larger reserves
than in corresponding periods of 1936. June 1
stocks were the heaviest ever reported for that
date, the nearest approach to this year's stocks
having been in 1930, when 231,000,000 pounds
were reported. In terms of percentages, June 1
stocks were 68 percent over those of the same
date in 1936, and 76 percent over the above-
mentioned five year average.

The total pack of evaporated milk in May
was approximately 248,000,000 pounds. This
represented a decrease of 1.7 percent below May
1936. Except for last year, however, this would
have been a record high. The average May pro-
duction, 1932-36, inclusive, was 216,300,000
pounds, ranging from 189,000,000 pounds in 1934
to 252,000,000 pounds in 1936. The seasonal in-
crease in May this year was 31 percent, which
was about the usual change. For the calendar
year to June 1, there was an estimated increase
over the corresponding period of 1936 of about
124 million pounds, or 1.6 percent. Manu-

facturers' reports covering quantities of milk
purchased from producers in May show increases
over May 1936 in total amounts and in numbers of
producers making deliveries, but a decrease of
3.9 percent in the average per producer.

Wholesale selling prices of evaporated
case continue unchanged at the same general
levels which have prevailed since February. At
these prices, apparent trade output exceeded that
of last year until May, when on the basis of such
information as is now available, it appears that
there was a drop under May 1936 of around 3 per
cent. For the first four months of 1937, trade
output was 18.6 percent greater than during the
corresponding period of 1936, so that even with a
Slight drop in May, the movement up to June 1
will bo greater than that of last year. In terms
of volume, the 1937 calendar year increase to
IMay 1, over the first four months of last year,
was 104,000,000 pounds, almost the equivalent of
Full month's pack during the season of lightest
production. Prices paid producers in May
averaged $1.43 per cwt., compared with $1.49 in
April, and $1.29 in May 1936. Since prices to
producers are based in part upon current butter
prices, producers' prices for June milk may be
slightly lower, for butter prices so far this
month have averaged about 1 cent per pound under
tho May average. Butter prices in June have been
supported by active buying by the AAA for relief
Distribution.

The market on condensedcase goods con-
,tinues at unchanged prices. Production in May of
18,000,000 pounds was 6.8 percent above a year
earlier. Stocks on June 1 of 8,670,000 pounds
represented an increase of 5 percent over those
of June 1, 1936. .-
