Mr. Harkness:

I think that is probably going to be one of the difficulties in getting rid of this wheat. The food value per pound in relation to the price you have to pay for it is not as great as the food value per pound of barley for which you pay a lower price. It would seem to me that if we are going to get rid of this low grade wheat through feeding it to hogs it is probably going to be necessary that the price of it be brought down so that it will be more comparable with the price of barley.
