PRODUCE MARKETS

TRADE IN AUCKLAND POTATO SUPPLIES SMALL FUTURE MAIZE POSITION There is a fair inquiry for grain and produce in Auckland. The snowfall in the South Island has affected the supply of potatoes and if digging is interrupted for long, the future appears firm. Maize is the only grain to show any signs of easing, as quotations for August-September delivery are slightly lower. POTATOES There is a firmer market for potatoes, as snow in the South Island has prevented digging. Only about 1500 sacks are expected by the "Wingatui to-day. The demand is turning from whites to Red Dakotas. Through store, potatoes arc worth around 10s a ton. Th.ere is a limited demand for seed potatoes and merchants are carrying stocks of early varieties. Prices are on a par with last season's. ONIONS Only small quantities of Pukrkohe onions are offering. The market is firm at around 17s per cwt through store. FOWL WHEAT Loral values of wheat remain steady at about os lOd a bushel, through store. Milling wheat will be available next month at the lower values recently announced by the Wheat Purchase Board, and prices should recede by about 3d a bushel. However, the age of the wheat offering has not been ascertained, and Southern quotations for July di-liwry of fowl wheat have not been reduced. MAIZE Attention is being paid to new season's maize, which is now coming forward. The quality is good. Prices through store arc around 4s 3d a bushel. BARLEY The firm position for barley :s tending to restrict business, which has been fainy heavy lately on account of the high prices of other grains. Quantities for future shipment have been sold for direct delivery to the Waikato. Prices for clipped are from 4 3 4d to 4s 6d a bushel through store. OATS AND CHAFF Distinct firmness is shown in the market for oats. A Gnrtons are being quoted at up to 4s (id a bushel and B Gartons at 4s 2d a bushel through store: Chaff remains firm at the, recent advance, and is worth from £7 10s to £7 15s a ton. BRAN AND POLLARD Local pollard is still very difficult _to secure. The market shows no sign of easing as on account of the prolonged drought in Queensland, Australian millers are reluctant to quote for shipment to New Zealand. Local pollard is nominally quoted at IT. 17s Cid a ton, through store, while Australian is worth from i' 7 as to £7 10s a ton on the same basis. Bran is unchanged at A'(> 5s a ton. POTATO BAGS Prices for second-hand sugar bags for new potatoes show a _ distinct advance on last ve.ar, quotations in some cases being 3d a dozen higher. A line of thin hessian potato bags introduced la6t season also has advanced in price. BOBBY CALVES PROSPECTS FOR SEASON INCREASED WORKS CHARGES [from our. OWN correspondent] HAMILTON, Monday "The removal of the. embargo on the export of bobby veal by the Meat Board until further notice is regarded by the trade to indicate that no embargo is intended, and the prospects for a normal season are practically assured." said Mr. W. A. Phillips, chairman of directors of the New Zealand Co-operative Pig Marketing Association, Limited, in an interview.

While it was not possible at this juncture to give any reliable indication of values for the season, said Mr. Phillips, it was now known that as a result of an increase in freezing workers' wages and recent new regulations governing the export of bobby real, works charges had generally been increased by id a pound on the export rate. This, together with the effect of the above-mentioned regulations, which provided for the trimming of the boned meat to an extent which represented a loss to the exporter on the previous year's exportable meat of approximately IB per cent, must be reflected in" the price received by the farmer. The value of the product, however, large!v depended on the skin market, of which a reliable test could not be made pending the offering of large quantities. Mr. Phillips said one of the most important aspects of the bobby calf trade lay in its source of supply of veils, upon which the New Zealand cheese industry was dependent for its rennet. This product could be obtained onlv from calves slaughtered at freezing' works. It was, therefore, hoped that the improved position of the calf trade this year would ensure an ample supply of the product for local requirements.
