Mr and Mrs Paul Hughes and family of Mason City were dinner guests Sunday, Feb. 12, of his Calm Prevails In Election i Year As Candidates Few Economist Sees Corn At 80 Cents Bushel By Fall parents, Eiughes. Mr and Mrs James The recent United Stales,Department of Agriculture announcement which dropped corn loans 18 cents a bushel can greatly affect the 1956 corn allotment program. Francis A. Kuiish, 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 Kossulh Extension Service points out. Results of widespread nonparticipation 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. Kutish claims this also will reduce the alternatives for the hog farmers. Farmers in 1952, according to Kuiish, 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 the 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 io re-evaluate their hog plans because of such price expectations. He adds lhat 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, Kuiish 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 Ihe 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 the President can agree on within the near future.
