Are Sn NATIONAL STOCK YARDS, 111., Jan. 31--Mid-winter finds live stock prices, averaging slightly below the all-time record levels following a year of liberal receipts and a broad demand resulting from record U. S. employment and incomes, according to the Producers Live Stock Commission Association. , JL)eau ,,. ^ v . ««...-- r .-- ,,_. Live stock and meat prices havejof Commerce will.speak on . I e been supported by a favorable sup- Outlook for Industrial Activity ana ply and demand situation as well as" by the inflated commodity pries- level. Barring the reimposition of price controls and rationing, live stock values seem well protected during most of 1948. From the standpoint of supply, live stock and meat production this year is likely to drop 10 to 15 per cent from 1947 as a result of heavy marketings last year and slow feedlot replacements. The high level of American business and consequently the demand for meat is expected to continue during the first half of this year and possibly longer. Just as poor crops last year served as a strong inflationary force, good crops in the U. S. and Europe this year could signal the slowing of the boom. ^ Wll 61Wfc ,. ,,, .... The impression seems to be grow- i n the old plant, and new ones are ing in many quarters that should further inflation be avoided the end of the boom need not necessarily bring about a prolonged setback or a major depression of the 1932 variety. The long term appraisal of the U. S. economy points to a period of great expansion.
