Consumption this year Is expected to average 145 pounds, rills compares with a prewar average of 126 pounds. But, there is a question as to whether meat production will in•ease enough to put that much more meat on dinner tables. More and more of (he production „... be required by the armed services. Men In uniform cat more meat than civilians. Prices Arc Relatively High Prices of meat animals—particu- irly beef'cattle — are relatively high now, But whether they are high enough, in the case of hogs, to spur farmers to increase production sharply is doubled by some Tending to offset the high prices result meat prices are being push- farmers receive for meat animals U the high cost ot production. Livestock feed prices have gone up. They are likely to go much higher. The average corn belt farmer figures that he must get enough mo- ney from loo pounds ol live hog to pay for 12 bushels of corn. At present 100 pounds of hog Is equal In value to about 12.9 bushels of corn'. A year ago, hogs were much more valuable in relation to feed. A hundred pounds of hog would buy 15.7 bushels of corn. Maybe Nol Enough Experts (igure that the present price ratio should encourage some Increase over present Jel'els, but perhaps not enough. This being the case, some farm leaders have urged that the government set up price guarantees on hogs to encourage farmers to expand nroriuction rather • sharply. Such incentives were used In the last war.
