Ability to Maintain Urice Will De
pend on Normal Marketing
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 25. The
conference between the livestock subcom
mittee of the Agricultural Advisory Board,
Including special members representing the
swine industry and the Feed Administra
tion, has after consideration of the present
situation of the pork and hog market
reached the following conclusions:
The entire marketing situation has so
changed since the September joint confer
ence as ,to necessitate the entire alteration
in the plans of price stabilization. The cur
rent peace talk has alarmed the holders of
corn, and there has been a price decline of
from 25 cents to 40 cents per bushel. This
decline has spread fear among swine grow
ers that a similar reduction in the prices
of hogs would naturally follow. In view of
these changed conditions, many swine pro
ducers anticipated lower prices, and as a
result rushed their hogs to market in large
numbers and this over-shipment has added
to and aggravated the decline.
With the return to peace, so far as It Is
possible to interpret this fact, it appears
that there should be even a stronger de
mand for pork products after the war and,
heretore, any aiarm ox nog producers as to
the effect of peace is unwarranted by the
As a result or negotiations on foreign or
ders, the following undertaking has been
given by the packers:
It is agreea tnai me parsers participating

dred pounds, the average of packers'
droves to be construed as the average of the
total sales in the market of all hogs for a
given day. All the above to be based on
Chicago. The ability of the packers to carry
out this arrangement will depend on there
being a normal marketing of hogs based
upon the proportionate increase over the
receipts, of last year. The increase in pro
duction appears to be a maximum of about
15 per cent, and we can handle such an in
crease. If the producers of hogs should, as
they have in the past few weeks, premature
ly market hogs at such increasing numbers
over the above it is entirely beyond the
ability ol the pacKers to maintain these
minimums, and therefore we must have the
co-operation of the producer himself to
maintain these results."
