K Corn and Hog Program Designed for Balancing Supply, Demand, Claim Purpose of Project to Boost Farm Prices. NOTE: Tho following article prepared by the agricultural luljustment administration is reproduced to give Globe-Gazette renders the details of the corn-hog plan mid the general ideu behind the crop adjustment program, Corn and hog farmers, like other farmers in the United States, are anxious to obtain their fair shave of the national income. The corn-hog production adjustment plan now- gives them this chance by providing the machinery for bringing supply into better balance with actual demand. It is essential that some adjust- ment-be made in both corn and hog productions in the United States. Exports of pork and lard to foreign countries have declined severely in recent years on account of heavier hog production abroad and higher foreign tariffs. Consequently, an excess of pork and lard, which formerly was exported, now must find an outlet in the home market. It is this excess of the past few years which has- driven bog prices to record low levels at homo and has prevented their rise. There is no immediate prospect for regaining any large portion of our former export trade and the probable pick-ny m home consumption through our present relief and employment program will not bo enough to solve our surplus problem.

The tmsis of Act. It will be administered through al adjustment is a reduction in community committees and county · number of litters farrowed and production-control associations to = TM n ,.i,=*,,,, :,, fv.. ,-..»....,, be organized soon in all major corn and hog producing counties. The only purpose of these associations will be to carry out the Corn-Hog Adjustment Plan within the coun- i-:,..-, NINE of a. real hogs marketed in the future. Too Much Feed. We have a corn production problem because we continue to raise etioug-h corn to feed the present excess of hogs. Therefore, when we cut down ou hogs we must nlso make at least a corresponding reduction in corn acreage. If this is not done, the corn no longer required for hog feeding will become available for other usas and will have a tendency to depress corn prices. Relatively low corn prices then will encourage heavier production of other livestock. Eventually, farmers will be tempted lo go back to heavier hog production. What we want is a balanced production of meat animals and feed crops, not merely a. shift which does not reduce form output. A reduction in corn acreage will help establish and maintain this balance. In accepting the government's offer under the corn-hog: adjustment plan, you agree to the following;: 1. Reduce the acreage planted to corn on the farm j'ou will operate in 193-1 to at least 20 per cent (one f i f t h ) below the average number of acres planted to corn on this farm during the past two years (1932 and 1933. Example: Suppose you grew 05 acres of corn in 1932 and 105 acres in 1933 on the farm you will operate in 1934. This makes an average of TOO acres for the two year base period, 1932 and 1933. Under the plan, therefore, you would reduce your corn planted in 1934 to 80 acres; thnt is, to at least 20 per cent (one fifth) below your average for the two preceding years. Your reduction under th'-i would be 20 acres which you contract to the government. You .may, however, in 1934, retire from corn production as many acres in excess of such 20 per cent as you desire, but corn-reduction payments shall not be made on more than 30 per cent of such average acreage for 1932 and 1933. Reducing Herd. 2. (a) Reduce the size of your brood sow herd so that not more tlmn three-fourths as many litters will be fan-owed in 1934 as were farrowed on the average by your sows in 1932 and 1933. (b Market from these litters not more than three-fourths of the average number of pigs farrowed and marketed (or to be marketed this winter) from your own sows in 1932 and 1933. You also agree not to increase In 1934 the number of hogs bought and fed for market, above the average number bought and fed during the two year base period. Example: Suppose your sows farrowed an average of 16 Utters in 1932 and .033, and an average of 100 pigs were marketed from these! litters. Under this plan you would ! produce in 1934 not more than 12 litters (three-fourths of 18), and you agree to sell from these litters not more than 75 pigs (three-fourths of the 100 head you sold on the average from home farrowed litters in 1932 an I 1933). Suppose also that in 1932 and 1933 you bought an average of DO head of pigs to feed for market. Under this plan in 1934 you would buy and feed not more than the average number you bought and fed during the two year bas' period. (The hog- market years considered in the contract are December 1, 1931. to December 1, 1932; December 1, 1932 to December 1, 1933- and December 1, 1933, to December 1 1934.) Benefits Offered. For making these adjustments, you receive the following benefits: 1. A corn-reduction payment at the rate of 30 cents a bushel on the estimated production of corn, in the past five years, on the contracted acreage. The 2-year base period, 1932 and 1933, will determine the numbers of acres you may contract to the government. If, for example, you contracted 20 acres of laud which yielded, or would have yielded in the past 5 years, an average of 30 imshela an acre, you would receive S3 an acre or a total of $180. (20 acres x 30 bushela x 30 cents.) One half, or 15 cents a. bushel of this corn-reduction payment will be made as soon us possible after acceptance of your contract by the secretary of agriculture. The remainder, minus local administrative expenses, will be paid on or after Nov. 15, 193-J, upon evidence that the contract has been fulfilled. 2. A hog-adjustment payment of ?5 a head on the number of hogs you produced for market from litters farrowed by your sows, provided you have reduced your hog production In accordance with the contract. If your 1932 and 1933 average protection for market was 100 hogs, you would be allowed to produce 75 per cent of this number, or 7fl hogs, in 1934, and you would receive a total hog benefit payment of 5375 minus expenses. Two fifths, or $2 ft head on your reduced production, will be paid us soon as possible after your contract is approved; ?l jt head about Sept. 1, 1934, and the remainder, ?2 a head, minus administrative expenses, about Feb. 1, 1R35. Arc Not Gifts. The payments you will receive under this plan are not gifts from the government. They nre your share of the larger total farm income that is possible with controlled production. Besides the.se adjustment payments, you will have the benefit of any increase in market price, This program protects the farmer who joins In the production- adjustment effort. Tho.ie who do not | join and decide to increase production at the expense of their fellow farmers will depress the market pi-ice for all producers, but particularly for themselves. The "insider" is protected because he receives his full benefit payments, regardless of the trend of production among "outsiders." This Corn-Hog Plan i;; purely vol- ties. Am for Pastures. Unless otherwise prescribed by the secretary, the land you contract to take out of production shall be used only for planting additional permanent pasture; for soil-improving- or erosion-preventing crops not to bo harvested; for resting or fallowing the land; for weed eradication; or for planting farm wood lols. The government has records on past com and hog production by states and counties upon which to check the total production of individual producers in a county, but It will be necessary to get certain specific information from farmers themselves. Statements of farmers will be checked against state and county production records, and individual's statements on the acreage and yield of corn and production of hogs during the past two years will be published. Remember, the goal 13 to raise farm prices lo a parity with the prices of other commodities. Corn and hog farmers can help strike this new balance through sound production control, standing neighbor with neighbor under the Corn- Hog- Adjustment Plan. This Will Help. Here are some things you can do to help speed up the signing and acceptance of your contract, when the campaign begins in your community: 1. Attend all meetings concerned with the corn and -hog project, so that you may know how the plan actually works, and be entirely familiar with it. 2. Assemble definite fig\ires on Lhc acreage of various crops during 1932 and 1033 on the farm you wilt operate in 1934. Also, you should know the acreage taken out for woodlands, pasture, farm buildings, orchards, roads and the like, so that you may account for the uses of the total farm area. 3. Assemble definite information on number of litters farrowed by your sows in 1932 and 1933, and on the disposal of the hogs from these litters; also, on the number of feeder pigs bought nnd sold by you during the two year base period. (Dec. 1 1931, to Dec. 1, 1932, and Dec 1 1932 to Dee. 1, 1933.) 4. Be thinking- about the fields you wish to contract to the government. Remember the contracted rn acres must be at least 20 per cent and may be up to 30 per cent of the average com acreage during 1932 and 1933. Determine as nearly ns possible the average corn yield for this land during the past five years. Obtain all the data possible on the yields and kinds of crops planted the last five years on the land you expect to lease. 0. Assemble Information on uses made of the corn crop during the last two years, (on the farm you will operate in 1934), whether for grain, silage, hogging-down, cash sales or other purposes. 7. Assemble all the sales slips farm records or other kinds of evidence to support your claims as to We Want Hosiery That's what they all say! You'll find MUler-Jonus is THE place to buy hosiery.
