MARCH UNIFORM PRICE $3.62 


Dairy farmers will receive a uniform price of $3.62 for March 1958 deliveries 
of Grade A milk to handlers under the South Bend-LaPorte, Indiana, milk order. 
The uniform price is based upon a butterfat test of 3*5 percent and will be 
adjusted by a differential of 7.1 cents for each one-tenth percent that tests 
vary above or below the 3.5 percent standard. This minimum price is subject 
to a three cent per hundredweight marketing service deduction, together with 
the standard hauling charge and the three percent transportation tax on 
hauling.

nonfat dry milk. In comparison to the 1957-58 marketing year, the buying 
prices are lower by 1-3/U cents per pound for butter, cents per pound
