COURIER JAOITHRW The Notion's Business Bigger Beef, Pork Supplies Indicate Possible Price Cuts By SAM DAWSON CHICAGO, April 29 (AP) — More beef coming to market than first thought — more pigs on the farms eating their way in the same direction — the next few months look bright for the nation's eaters and family budget keepers. Packers today are revising upwards earlier estimates of the total amount of beef, veal, Iamb and pork that will find its way to the table this year. If they're right, it should mean the tumble of the costly pork chop by fall and. stable prices, at the least, for beef. Lamb, however, still looks like a fairly rare and expensive dish. The rush of cattle to the stockyards in the early months of this year helped the housewife offset in part the rising cost of pork. Packers think that the drought-ravaged range lands of the Southwest may send a large number of cattle to market again this fall, unless rains are above normal. Pork marketings have been short so far hj£ year, bu he re- suling high price led farmers o increase spring pig producion by almost 10 per cent over a year ago. By fall these porkers should start a steady march to market. If that eases prices, as expected, many farmers may market their pigs early. Farmers' intentions of farrowing a larger crop of fall pigs for next spring's pork market are foreshadowed in reports that many in the corn-hog belt of the Midwest will ignore the corn acreage allowances this spring and plant as much as they please. That indicates a program of raising feed for their own hogs rather than planting with an eye on price support levels for corn.
