WASHINGTON, Feb. 28 --The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced
today the minimum prices at which Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) commodity

domestic or export use and "export" applies to sales, which require export.
"Market price" means prices as determined by CCC.

Nonfat dry milk and rice are listed for unrestricted use sale. Crude peanut
oil and farmers stock peanuts are listed for restricted use sale.

Odd lots and off-quality lots are sold promptly and may not appear in the
Monthly Sales List. CCC may limit sales quantities. Nonstorable commodities will
