' ' " Partners Expect -15% Fewer Sows for Spring Farrow HOGS WONT GIVE PROFITS OF '43 But They'll Make .. r _... for Farmers With Feed Iowa farmers probably will keep somewhere between 10 inj 20 per cent fewer sows for fart rowing this spring than last year, report Iowa State college · exten- ^ Eion agricultural economists in the monthly farm outlook released Friday. Farmers in this state will raise a lot of June pigs, however, , If present indications are correct. Possibility that March hog prices will be stronger may help · to' increase June farrowings. By · the 2nd or 3rd week m March the pressure,on marketings may have eased considerably. As soon as farmers suspect the end of heavy marketing is near and prices may- rise, many will begin to hold back hogs, the economists predict. This will both slow down marketings and : speed up the price rise. .llags won't yield the profits ot '* year asp, but they will still make good money for the mart who has feed in sight, the equipment and ability to raise hogs at a reasonable cost.- : Here are other' aspects of the farm outlook as presented by the economists Cattle-- Under the live cattle price control program of Jan. 3 prices of fed cattle have remained at about · the same level which prevailed, during the previous 2 months. The program co/itrols the maximum and minimum total amounts a slaughterer can pay for all cattle slaughtered each month, but does not control the average .cost of any one grade, Under the program, the prices « m _ a n actual : ' live · weight basis ·which ah Iowa packer can actually afford fo pay will he from 80 to 90 cents per hundredweight less than the Chicago price because th'e Iowa packer does hot receive the same actual dressing yield. The shrink from shipping permits the Chicago packer to get a higher yield. Botn the Iowa packer -and. the Chicago . packer . use the same "standard yield." Since the yields used in the live price control plan for common to choice cattle are yields for steers only, and since heifers and cows ol the* s a m e grade yield less than steers, packers will have to pay somewhat lower prices for them than for steers of the same grade. _ F e c d -- United States supplies- Jan. 1 oE feed grains, corn, oats and barley were about 16 per cent under the 1943 level. clip . Wool-- Prices for the 1944 wool ip remain uncertain until the Commodity Credit corporation an- n '1944 wool-buying " - ' · " nounces Its program.-" SANTEE ELECTED Io«a Falls--J. K.
