THE EXPORT OF BUTTER.
SPLENDID AUXILIARY MARKET,
Sydney, March 2,
Mr Mears, manager of the Coa tal Farmers' Co-operative Society, who has returned from a tour in the United States and Canada, with the object of establishing butter export arrangements on similar lines to th' so with Great Britain, ia convinced that b.jih count, ies offer splendid auxiliary markets. The continued increase of population without a corresponding advance in production, he says, has created a serious shortage in autumn and winter. As computed with Britain, Canada and the United States offer special advantages to producers on account of the short sea journey and sales direct to retailers. The legislation on coloured margarine, he says, gives butter due protection. New Zealand under the reeip' roeal tariff agreements with Canada and a subsidised steamer service will this season ship over 4000 tons. Ia those countries the autumn nnd winter shortage is met by a speculative shortage of summer supplies, but a large influx of hicrh-grade New Zealand butter into Canada and the reduction of the American duty would check this. There is increasing room for Australian butter from November to March. Jn Argentine and Siberia the higher values ruling for wheat and wool will prevent the encroachment on dairying. In New Zealand the increased prices for cheese are keeping the butter production in chec . Compared with Victorian and New Zealand the appearance of the New South Wales boxes were highly detrimental to sales.
