WEEKLY COTTON REVIEW I
Trading in spot cotton slowed
down last week in Oklahoma and
Texas markets, reports the Pro-
duction und Marketing Adminis-
tration, U. S. Department of Agri-
Domestic mill interests continu-
ed quiet with purchases limited to
small lots for nearby needs. How-
ever, export demand remained
good. Merchants found some of
the desired qualities in rather
Local merchants and shippers
offered rather freely at prevailing I
prices which climbed to the high- ;
est point since February 23 early ;
last week, but declined later.
Net losses on quotations at Dal- |
las and Houston ranged between !
75 cents to a dollar per bale from [
Monday through Friday, but Gal i
veston prices held steady all week j
at 32.60 cents per pound, Middling '
15-16 inch cotton.
At this time last year, cotton j
quotations at these markets had
reached a peak of $36.65 cents per
pound, about $20 to $21 per bale "3
higher than they were last rriiay. .£
Farmers sold some equities in
government loan cotton between
$3 and $7 per bale last week.
Everybody wants the biggest
biggest share of the consumer dol-
lar. Whether it's a business or an
individual doesn't matter. The fel-
low that runs his business the
best is the one who will come out
All the commodities that are for
sale are in competition with each
other—every one trying to outdo
the other fellow. It's the same
thing with the poultry industry,
too, says ^F. Zr Beanblossom. ex-
tension poultry marketing special-
ist of Texas A. & M. College. Only
in this case, there's competition
among the poultrymen—the egg,
fryer and turkey producers.
Not many poultrymen stop to
think about all the things that
have to be done to get their prod-
ucts on the market. It's because
the bigger part of them are think- j |
ing only about the production end
of the situation. Most poultry
raisers turn the selling end of the
job over to another fellow. But in
quite a few cases with the poultry
and poultry products business this
These people that do the selling
also have a finger in the financial
pie. They, too, are looking for a
part of the consumer dollar. In
order to compete with other items
for this consumer dollar, a prod-
uct has to have eye appeal, high
quality and uniformity of quality.
The salesman has to reduce the
loss of the product through sell-
ing, and reduce the loss of quali-
ty in a product. Honesty is impor-
tant in a business transaction, and
there has to be an ample supply
to be an economical venture.
According to records in areas of j
Texas where graded programs op-
erate. many producers are not
selling on grade. The most com-
mon reason for this is low quality,
says JBeanblossom. The egg pro-
ducer is not willing to maintain
the quality of eggs when they are
laid. As a result, he says, the
flock owner doesn't profit when
selling eggs on a graded basis.
