Lincoln, May 5. A survey ot
prices paid to Nebraska farmers on
May 1 for products as compared to
a year ago shows that they are re
ceiving from 3 to 73 pe"r cent
less for what they have to sell now
than they did at the same time in
The survey covers 25 leading
products of Nebraska farms. The
prices quoted are average farm prices
over the state.-according to -A. E.
Anderson, Nebraska representative
of the bureau of crop estimates.
Drop In Corn.
The biggest decrease is shown in
the price paid to farmers for corn. A
vear ago farmers received 81 cents"
a bi-shel for this grain. The average
May 1 price was 28 cents a bushel,
a decrease of 73 per cent.
Nine, of the 25 products show a
decrease of more than 50 per cent as
compared to a year ago. In no case
are farmers receiving what they did
on May 1, last year.
Mr. Anderson says these losses
S'.em, particularly severe because of
the cost per acre ot producing these
"a&ps-vas higher last year than ever
The-greatest decreases are shown
in rrains. The high freight rates, Mr.
j Anderon says, are especially severe
j now since the drop in price of grain.
."When corn was bringing $1.50 a
j b :shel. farmers of Nebraska and
ulscwhere could afford to have de-
i dnctions made' to cover freight
I charges," he says." but now that
I corn is selling for less than 40 cents,
I deductjpns cut further into the pro
duction losses being sustained."
