M>) — Moat* prices, following their annual spring custom, are going up. So far, pork and lamb still are well below a year ago, but beef (s higher. All are substantially above their seasonal !ow marks of a couple months ago. Half ft dozen reasons appear when Wat and livestock experts start j£p!a!ning the current rise. '-I. There Is a seasonal decline In supplies. 2. Producers are developing cagler marketing practices. 3. A tate spring Is maintaining consumer appetites for meat longer than usual. Wage Totals Rise 'I. Factory wage totals are risinrj, reaching a new high mark for April. 5. Hotels, restaurants, and summer resorts are stepping up their demands tn anticipation of vacations. G. Prices of corn and oats continue to rise, making It less economical to feed livestock to heavier weights which would yield a greater tonnage of meat. A year ago No. I fresh pork loins were running 48 to 60 cents a pound at wholesale. Now they are around •10 (o 49, and at the low point of the season late in March they ivere 35 to 38',-f cents a pound. Stock Averages SIB As livestock, barrows and gilts of similar quality averaged about S20.50 a hundred pounds a year ago. topping at S21.50. Now they are averaging around S19 with the top close to $20.50, while at the low point the average was under $15.75 and the market top at S16. Good and choice beef carcasses, on the other hand, were $-11 to S45 a hundred pounds wholesale a year ago. compared with $15 to $49 now ^ a'seasonal low early in April at >0 to $-13.50. Medium to choice sfcers sold from $24.50 to $28-50 n year ago, the best making $29,00 a hundred pounds at the stockyards. Lately they have been S2S.75 to $32,50 and a top of $33.50. But early In April' they were about $23 to 530,50 and a peak of S32.00 to $33. I,anil) Is More Expensive Although lamb is more expensive, pound for pound, than either pork or beef, it too is lower than a year aso. At wholesale, good to choice fresh lamb carcasses were 58 to 61 cents a pound a year ago and now are about 50 to 5-1 cents. Lnmbs have maintained fairly slable live levels since their low point In Ue- cembcr when they ranged below $24 a hundred pounds. Now they are about $27, compared" with $29 to $30 a year ngo. Some livestock men see a changing trend in livestock marketing, especially in hogs. December and Jfti- uary still are the peak months for the spring pig movement, but supplies start to. swell in November and have petered out pretty much bjAfe the end of January. " HOSJ , BeinfrViVIarketed- This means, say meat men, the hogs are being marketed at lighter weights, which fn turn means less actual pork tonnage being turned out than formerly. Another market analyst said hog producers, through their marketing associations, are carefully watching day-to-day supply and demand figures at the nation's stockyards centers so as not to overload the market and cause a price break.
