Under this Commitment Individual farmers had lair assurance that they would get the guaranteed minimum. ; Now about all the individual farmer can count on Is a price in the neighborhood of the support level. K U not likely, officials said, (hat indlridual prices at the height of the winter marketing sea-son ..will drop more than »1 below the prospective national support average of faultily $U£0 per 100 pounds. j While hog prices tend to hold a leneral level, local supply conditions as well as local and nearby demands /or pork often vary. This variation could reflect Itself In hog prices above support levels in some markets and below In cilheis. Government Hedring This change In the tiog support program greatly reduces the possibility of extensive government buying of pork (his fall and winter to carry out the price guarantee. The new setup may bring criticism from farmers and Iheir congressmen. Many farm leaders con- ten dlhat It is the Intent ol price support laws that the government use evety possible means to assure every fanner the guaranteed price for all hi 1 ! products. In making the change at this time, the department opens the door to (he contention that It Is changing rules in the middle of the game. The argument can be made that the change should have been made before farmers bred and raised trie hogs to be sold under the new rules.
