Second, the maximum back-fat thickness permitted has been reduced by two-tenths of an inch on all grades except the medium. The medium is reduced by one-tenth of an inch. The five revised grades: U. S. No. 1 — Slaughter hogs with near minimum finish required to produce high quality pork cuts. Carcasses usually yield more than half their weight in the -lean cuts of hams, loins, picnics and Boston butts. U. S. No. 2 — Slaughter hogs slightly fatter. Carcasses normally yield 47 to SO per cent of their weight in the four trimmed lean cuts. U. S. No. 3 — Slaughter hogs that are overfat. Yields of the four lean cuts are usually less than 47 per cent of carcass weight. Medium — Hogs which are slightly underfinished. Yields of lean cuts are relatively high, but total ration of lean and fat to bone is slightly low. Cull — Hogs which are decidedly underfinished and produce cuts inferior in quality. At left—U. S. Number 1 (Meat-Type Hog); second. U. S. No. 2: third, U. S. No. 3: fourth. Medium; fifth. Cull. (Grades effective July 5, 19S5) PREMIUM PRICES on MEAT-TYPE HOGS EVERY FRIDAY at WESTERN BUYERS!
