Kutish. 'Iowa State College farm economist, predicts, Coming on the heels of a 15 per cent cut in corn acreage, it raises the big question of how much participation we can expect in'the program, the Kossuth Extension Service points out. Results of widespread nonpariicipaiion in the'allotment program are manifold. If there is a normal crop with little corn eligible for supports, it is believed that prices will be depressed. Kulish claims this also will reduce the alternatives for the hog farmers. Farmers in 1952, according to Kutish, could cut back on hogs because of low hog prices and seal their corn. There were no allotments then, nor restrictions on sealing. But this year we have a sizable cut in allotments and lower loan rates. Since the 1956-57 loan rate for northwestern Iowa will be in ihe neighborhood of $1.20, the alternative of 1952 no longer exists. Some farmers, reports Kutish, figure that the above factors next fall .may force corn down to 80 cents on the farm in some areas. He therefore expects many farmers to re-evaluate their hog plans because of such price expectations. He adds that 12 cent hogs will be more profitable than selling corn for 80 cents a bushel ,on the market. This re-evaluation may be too late to affect the 1956 spring pig crop, but it most certainly could show up in next fall's crop, Kulish suggests. Low price for corn also would encourage cattle feeding next fall. Short feeding operations probably would increase, with these cattle being marketed late in the year. Thus the fed cattle under such conditions would peak in mid-fall. All of these conditions, of course, commented Kutish, may never materialize. He concludes that the corn outlook for next fall depends for the most part on what kind of farm program Congress and ihe President can agree on with- • in the near future. the afternoon pla'ting ames.
