MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE LIVE HOG MARKET SUFFERS REACTION STEERS DEMAND STRONG PRICES MARCH 11 1931 Good Pork-Trade Fails to Prevent Swine From Slipping. , ^ CHICAGO, March 11. UP)--Reaction, in the hog market was regard^ ^ ed as only natural following the eaa- I" -ong of the situation with reference ·· ,to supplies at the principal mar- Jteli. Even the marked improvement in the fresh pork trade failed to prevent prices from slipping 1 from lOc to 35c in the live hog market today. With best light and light butchers selling at ?8@8 25, it was evident that prices had yielded only half of the sharp advance scored on the first two days of the week Heavy hogs were not wanted by out-of-town buyers and local packers insisted on concessions of 256 a cwt before talking hold of the 280320 Ib. offerings. Packers received 3,500 fiogs direct out of the run of '19,000 and 5,000 stale hogs were car- jfiedjOver unsold from Tuesday's ·market. Strong prices were asked for steers and choice kino's proved attractive to early buyers notwithstanding the increase in general receipts of 8,500 cattle,. Plain to me,, dium steers were not' active Calves met'with an indifferent' demand, tho the run of 2,000 was somewhat lighter than a week ago , Packers reported one double deck billed direct, the rest of the 10,000 sheep and Jambs estimated for today being available in the sheep ;Sheds to buyers..
