SYDNEY, March 2
Mr Meai'S,-, manager of the Coastal Farmers' Co-operative Society, has returned from a tour in America and Canada, with the object of establishing butter export arrangements on similar lines £o those in Great Britain. He is convinced that both countries will prove splendid auxiliary markets. The continued increase in their population without a corresponding advance of production has created a serioxis shortage in autumn and winter as compared with ' "Great ■ Britain. Canada and America offer , special advantages to producers, and the short sea journeyi, sales direct to the retailers, and legislation on coloured margarine/ gives butter due protection. " New Zealand, under reciprocal tariff agreements with Canada and a subsidised steamer service, will' this' 1 season chip' over 4000 tons. In those countries the autumn and winter shortage is met by a speculative shortage in summer supplies, but the large influx of high-grado New Zealand "butter into Canada and a reduction in the American duty will check this. There is increasing room , for Australian butter from November to March. In the Argentine and, Siberia tne higher values ruling for ; wheat and wool will prevent encroachment in dairying, and in New Zealand | the increased prices for cheese are' keeping the butter production in check. Compared with Victoria and New Zea-i land, the appearance of New South Wales boxes is highly detrimental to sales.
