Free Fall
SCRANTON (Lackawanna Co.) — Oreeae pricea were in (free fall for
iix week* before finally getting the parachute open five week* ago. Which
onlytneanathcy are atill falling but not aafaaL What we don't know ia how
far they are from the ground before they can go up again for another try.
From their peak price of $ 1.39 the end of May, block pricea fell nearly 14
centa in aix week* and than added loeaaa of four oanta more inthelaat five
weeka for a total of 1 > cent* in 11 weeka. The rate of decline haa alowed con
aiderably from an avenge of over two centa a week to lea* than one cent
recently. However, USDA’a Dairy Market Newa aounda like a broken
record with the aame report—“the eheeae market iaunaettled"—forthejaat
five weeka. Suatained inneaaea in milk production (June war up again one
percent) and lower demand, have been given moat often aa the reaaon for the
decline m eheeae pricea.
Invenlctiea Up
If the reaaon for the 23 cant incraaae in eheeae pricea in March and April
waa inventory building, the handler! did a good job. The USDA report on
cold atonge holdinga for June ihow an increaae of 11 percent over May in
commercial atocka of cheddar eheeae and 17 percent over laat June. In which
caae it may be another couple of monlha before demand increaaea enough to
affect the price. Thia should happen in preparation for late fall and winter
holiday aalea along with the opening of achoola that affect demand through
aubardized lunchea including powder, eheeae and milk.
The Mmneaou-Witcontin Price Seriee d topped another 61 cenu in July
to $11.42 making a total diop of $l.lO in two month* from ita peak of $12.52
in May. With dry alum milk pricea only ateady to lower and inventoried
ample to fill current needa, the declinea in chceac pricea will mean further
dropa in the M-W price. If the lower cheeae pricea tranalate into a $1 .SOdtop
in the M-W from ita high of $12.52, it would mean another fall to $10.72 in
the neat two monlha. It probably won't |o that low but at leaat the prediction
that the milk pricea act in May and June will be the hi|heat for the year aeema
to be right Thoae who gueaaed otherwiae are chan|in| their numbera. Any
changer in national milk pioductian due to the weather are not expected now
until after the fitat of the new year.
Farm Prlcaa
The lower cheeae and M-W pricea haven’t quite hit the fan yet at the farm
level in the checka for July milk. In fact the Weighted Average in Order 4
waa up five centa from June to July and the Uniform Price in Order 36 wu
off only one cant Order 2 thowed a drop of 26 canta to the Uniform Price
front the previoua month. The principal reaaon waa the peak in Claaa I pricea
in July from that M-W peak in May but Augual farm pricea will begin to
reflect the dropa in the M-W price in June and July.
Producer profiu from now on may well depend on crap production tod
winter forage feed available on the farm. Crowing conditiona vary widely in
the northeeat from diaaatar aaaiatance tituationa to very notmal crept. A lot
will depend on the yield and quality at com adage. If you got it, give thanka.
Some who don’t may have to give up.
