For years, individual problems raised by the marketing of high-protein wheat have been overlooked, or at best only mentioned in passing. But recently they have been investigated in a study conducted at Montana State College by the Endowment and Research Foundation under contract with the United States Department of Agriculture. This basic survey included personal contacts with many producers, country and terminal elevator operators, flour millers, and commission firms. The complete report, which is due for release soon, analyzes supply responses, country elevator operations, and demand conditions. It recommends changes designed to improve the handling of highprotein wheat. The following article contains some of the highlights of the report. The contribution is from Montana State College, Agricultural Experiment Station, and is Paper No. 392, Journal Series.
