Cattle purchases by the committee are furnished by donations and all of the Brown Swiss moved out of this area were purchased outright by the committee through its representative, Milford Lady, with the help of W. H. Azeltine, Brown Swiss breeder of Hampton. Breeders in this area from whose herds heifers were selected include Ed Hensing, Iowa Falls, 4 head; C. M. Myers, Iowa Falls, 5 head; Dallas Harrison, Hampton, 3 head; W. H. Azeltine, Hampton, 4 head; Marion Dickson, Nora Springs, 3 head, and Wilbur Howell, Charles City, 1 head. The heifers were shipped to California, leaving Iowa Falls on the Illinois Central railroad and will be re-shipped by boat from there.

Fall Pig Crop Gain Foreseen Intention of Farmers Shows Good Increase Ames, (U.R)—Indications are that the fall pig crop in Iowa will be the largest since 1945, I. W. Arthur, Iowa State college agricultural economist, said Friday. In spite of being the smallest spring pig crop since 1941, Arthur said the spring crop was still about one per cent above the 10- year average and considerably more than the total indicated by farmer's intentions last fall. The number of sows farrowing was cut only 13 per cent and more pigs were saved per litter, he said, adding that the spring pig crop was only 6 per cent below the spring of 1947 as a result. Arthur said the number of pigs saved per litter last spring—6J— is the second largest on record. Iowa farmers intend to have 725,000 sows farrow from June to December, 10 per cent more than 1947 fall litters, he said. He added that intentions to increase fall litters are most common in western Iowa. It is possible some heavy cattle feeding areas will increase the number of fall pigs as an outlet for a larger share of their 1948 corn crop, he said.
