HUTCHINS, Secretary-Treasurer (26-27) I BUICK-SAUtS-SERVICE SOUTH PHILLIPS ST., ALGONA GASOLINE TIRES - OIL Lower Hog Peak Foreseen; Fall Slump Slight Hog marketings are more evenly distributed this year than they have been before. This means the peak hog prices this summer won't be as high as some thought earlier this year, says Farm Economist Francis Kutish of Iowa State College. And the fall slump won't be as low as some people feared. Kutish says it appears now that federally inspected hog slaughter in the United States will stay above a million head a week this summer. As long as slaughter is close to 1.1 million head per week, packers won't have much reason to run up the- prices of hogs. There's an adequate supply of pork in storage. There's been some rise in the< price of fresh pork, mainly loins, on the meat market. However, the new-crop | hogs are already coming on the slaughter market, and the hog ll will soon be expanding. August and September slaugh- .er will be significantly greater -han for the same months last year. This will take some of the ,op off the normal summer hog price peak. It will also take some Digs that normally come to mar- -cet later. This will lend support to the price during the normal iate fall marketing peak.
