The meet­ ing was presided over by Fund President Douglas Brodle, who Introduced General Co-Chairmen Dick Riant and W illiam Hunt, who gave an over-all view of the en-, tire campaign. Industrial Co- chairmen Paul Forte and Jam es Shea were then called on and made rem arks pertinent to the Indus­ tria l Drive Itself. M aterials were distributed lo each Industry or firm , with target date of October 12 for completion of the Indus­ tria l segment of the fall United Fund campaign. Co-chairman Jam es Shea urged all industrial firm s to consider pay-roll de­ duction, Mr. Shea also thanked the firm s for past solicitations, not­ ing that the Industrial Division is the largest total contributor to the fund and annually sets the pace for the remaining divisions. President Brodle presented In­ dividual Industrial chairman a- wards for last year’ s campaign to those who conducted the In- plant campaign In the Industries who won top per capita awards. The awards went to Joseph Turck of AM F, Ann Spagnolll of J. R Lew is, and RlchardBrown of N ia­ gara Mohawk. A special Ea rly Bird award was presented »o L a rry M arsh, area manager of General Telephone, for being the first firm to complete solicita­ tions In last years campaign.

John C . York, the cooperative’s General Manager, stated InSyra. cuse, N.Y,, that Eastern has pet. Itloned the Commissioner of Ag­ riculture of New York and the D irector of the Division of Dairy Industry, Department of Agricul­ ture of New Jersey, lo call and hold emergency public hearings concurrently with the Secretary o f Agriculture of the Untied Sta­ te* tolmmedlatelyamend Federal O rder Numbers 2 and 4, Eastern further petitioned the U, S , Secretary of Agriculture to hold said hearing as expedi­ tiously as possible in a location central to the markets under con­ sideration. Reasons given for this needed Increase of 88 cents are num­ erous. Increases In coat of pro­ ducing mtlk by the dairy farm er In dmfe do not reflect anticipa­ ted Inflationary costs as a result ot grossly adverse growing con­ ditions In the Northeast. Farm ers’ net cash income per farm In 1971 was 5.1 percent less than ln 1970 and 5.2 percent less than ln 1969, In terms of 1967 purchasing powers, farm ers’ net cash income perfarm In 1971 was 9.1 percent less than In 1970 and 13,2 percent below tha! for 1969. During the past two years, prices received by milk produ­ cers have Increased at an an­ nual rate of only about threeper- cent, while prices pa'd by far­ m ers have advanced at a rate of five to six percent, This Is to the detrimen! of net Income to dairy farm ers of the North­ east, An already undesirable cost- prlce squeeze threatens to wor­ sen this fall and winter In the wake of an unusually poor grow­ ing season throughoutIheNorlh- east and devastating floods In pari* of Pennsylvania and New York State. Yield per acre of hay Is es­ timated at only twotons per a cre. 9.1 percent below a year ago and 8,7 percent below 1970, The quality of this hey Is approxi­ mately 60% of normal. As a re­ sult of this situation hay prices are expected In Increase sub. gtantlally this fall and winter. Yield per acre of corn is est­ imated at 60 bushels per care. 7-7.1 percent below 1971 and 24,1 percent below 1970 . Yelld per acre for oats Is estimated at 51 bushels per acre - 10 percent below 1971 and 14.3 percent below 1970. If crops turn out as poor a s they now appear,cost* o f production are bound to soar and milk supplies maybesharply curtailed. Review of the trends which have occurred ln the numbers of pro­ ducers supplying the flyeFederal O rders in the Northeast reveals substantial and continual de­ clin e * . In June of this year, there were nearly 8,000 fewer producers serving these five markets than tn June 1969— a decline of 13.4 percent in just three short years. Other Important Indicators of adequacy of price to producers are the decline of cow numbers, increased prices for dwindling replacement slocks, cull cows and cilves, lower milk pro­ duction, and tight milk supplies. There his been no appreciable change tn the production of milk in ihe North Atlantic state* since 1969. However, starting with June and Ju ly this year there are strong indication* that pro­ duction has begun todecllnecom- pared to year ago levels. The decreases for those months were 1.8 percent and 2.8 percent, res­ pectively. For the future, continued decreases tn milk production In the Northeasf is Inevitable be­ cause of lower-than-usual quality of hay In 1972, poor quality and quantity of corn for silage and grain, decreasing numbers of cows and farms, continued high beef and cull cow prices, and likely Imporvemenl in Ihe avail- ab ility of off-farm employment opportunities. If current supply trends continue as anticipated, milk supplies for the five m ar. kets could become quite short In the months to come. For a ll of the foregoing rea- Itons, Eastern Milk Producers Cooperative Association, Inc. strenuously urged the Secretary fo call a hearing for the purpose o f considering its proposal as. set forth In Ihe petition. Perhaps never in recent h is. tory has the need been so ur­ gent for looking forward at what 1 * on the horizon for the dairy Industry of the Northeast, A \’ post-mortem” approach to the Issues at hand stmplv would not be responsive to the needs of producers retying on Federal milk orders In this region. Price Improvement Is needed now, not after the market has deteriorated. Farm ers are consumers sjso, paying higher prices for gasoline, bread, taxes, etc. Consumers are paying more for a ll Items as can be expected. They must pay more for mtlk. One cent m orr per quart increase Is mo­ dest In order to assure consumers an adequate supply and keep dairying a going business Plourde, (Clim ax); Jam es Burt, (National Bank); Richard Brown, (Niagara Mohawk); Robert M c­ Cabe, (Latex Fiber);EugeneHutt, (Payne-Jones); Rodney Persons, (Lew is County Trust Co.); Joseph Turck, (A M F ); Frank Davts, (A M F ); Ann Spagnolll, (J.P .
