KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE. ALQOKA. IOWA PAGE ELEVEN UNITED STATES EXPORTS OF HOG PRODUCTS (Each hog represents 1,000,000 head.) 1914 1919 1925 1930 1933 1 Estimated TniE accompanying graph constitutes a vivid explanation of one reason why tlie prices for corn and liogs have been so low the last taw years. The main reason Is the severe decline In the export demand lor United States bos products since the 1919 peak. In 1910-14, European nations took the equivalent of nearly six million hogs. This was only a moderate export level, but tho total United States hog production at that time was In good balance with the combined domestic and foreign demand. Under the stimulus of the World War, foreign purchases of our hog products jumped to the equivalent ot about seventeen million hogs. But slues the war, our export* have dropped back again to the equlvalont of about four million hogs. This decline has been due to a rapid restore tlon of bog production In European countries since the war, particularly In Germany and Denmark, and more recently because of tariffs and ot quotas which limit the quantity of Imports. Meanwhile, bog production In the United States has continued to increase at about the same rate as the population. Consequently, the product! no longer shipped abroad have become excess products on the home market and have driven down hog prlcea. Some adjustment to this changed demand must be made II hog prices are to be raised to a more favorable level. The corn-hog pro duction-control program, now being offered by the Agricultural Adjust ment Administration, will help farm ers bring about this necessary better ome-i ot itttfw • W lot j w««.e«iii««l Chrlitmai or New Y««r »iauoo.
