Facts That Every Hog Raiser Should Know SOMETIMES PEOPLE have the idea that the heavy-muscled meat type hog started just yesterday or last month. The interest in meat type hogs arose in the middle thirties. By 1935 we had lost a great deal of our lard exports. From 1935 to 1940 our lard exports were running from 7 to 14 per cent of our annual production, as compared to the 1925-30 period when we were exporting 29 to 34 per cent of our annual production. During the late thirties, soybean production began its fabulous growth, which increased the domestic supply of fatstmd oils. Soybean oil production in 1932 amounted to 39,000,000 Ibs., whereas by 1952, it was 2,478,000,000 Ibs. ' Various leaders in the field of animal agriculture began talking and discussing the fat problem in the '30's. Dean H. H. Kildee of Iowa State College held several meetings with producers and processors in the late 1930*8, discussing the intermediate hog and marketing hogs at lighter weights. On December 7, 1941, World War II broke out and we had forces in the Atlantic as well as the Pacific. During this period, the cheap vegetable oils were cut off from the South Pacific. We were feeding our allies and the enemy countries we were occupying as well as ourselves. At the war's end we had a number of countries that couldn't produce sufficient food for themselves. The Marshall Plan became a means to take care of them. Agricultural leaders could see the fat and oil situation becoming a problem. Again work was started to market hogs at lighter weights and produce meatier cuts for the housewife. Just about this lime the Korean conflict came along. Keep in mind that during World War II and the Korean conflict, pork processors operated under price ceilings up until February 6, 1953. X Since World War N, there has been a terrific change in our method of merchandising meat products. We have seen a great growth in supermarkets and last year they did 48 per cent of the country's grocery business. With the supermarkets came the self-service meat counters.

QUALITY AND EYE APPEAL ARE THUS VITAL Why Are We Running These Ads? * Hog buying and the supplying of pork to packers is our business. We realize both the problems faced by the raisers of pork, AND the desires on the part of packers to supply Jhe type of product IN DEMAND by the consuming public. This series of ads is our contribution to the effort toward raising hogs that will bring the pork raiser more money ,and also to emphasize thai we here at WESTERN BUYERS not only WANT Meat - Type Hogs but will PAY A PREMIUM TO GET THEM! We supply over 200 packers in all sections of the U. S. and because of that fact the hog raiser will find his BEST MARKET is with Western Buyers, when he sells. AT THE LEFT - THE MEAT-TYPE HOG AT RIGHT - THE AVERAGE FAT HOG The Meaty Hog on the left has more length and carries its width quite uniformly. The hog at the /ight tends to be narrower through the shoulder and ham area. A comparison of these two hogs shows the muscling and fat covering.
