MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 24 M 1936 _ LITTLE FORCED SELLING OF HOGS J[N_JOWA_QBSERVE]D PRICE STRENGTH IS ANTICIPATED Reduction of Marketings Followed Each Dip in Prices. AMES—The sharp reduction in hog offerings tnat has followed each recent reduction in price indicates that hogs still on farms a^e in relatively strong hands and that there is little if any forced selling, economists at Iowa State college said. Orderly marketing and continued strengthening of price may be expected "as a result of the situ- ntion which indicates that the fall run definitely is past, economists Increased cold storage holdings o£ lard, meat?, poultry and butler show how packers have prepared themselves for anticipated shortages expected later in the year as a result of the drought. Increased cold storage holdings probably are partly the explanation of rather well sustained hog prices in the face of recent heavy runs. ,, E«gs, because they are the only produce of \vhich cold storage supplies are not in excess of what they were a year ago, are at present in a favorable position from the producer's standpoint, but continued open winter weather likely will change that position rather rapidly, economists said.
