U. 8. Report Agrees
For the United States the tall
pig crop was practically the same
as in 1928. An increase In the
Corn Belt of about four per cent
was offset by decreases in most
other sections, particularly in the
South. The total 1929 pig crop in
the United States was 6.4 per cent
smaller than in 128 according to
the spring and fall pig surveys.
The surveys, however, unoermm
cated the big crop3 as checked by
subsequent marketings in the
Corn Belt by around four per cent.
Intentions to breed for farrowing
next spring show an increase of
six per cent. However, past spring
Eiirveys underindicated the actual
farrowings and partly offset the
spread between breeding inten
tions shown by the - rrent fall
survey and the actual farrowings
which will be obtained on the
June 1130 surrey. The net indi
cation Is for no great change in
next spring's pig crop.

A recent Issue of the "Agricul
tural Situation and Outlook."
published by the Oregon State
college carries an Interesting com
ment as to the variation in esti
mates of the value of Oregon farm
crops. The difficulty in arriving
at an accurate estimate is pointed
out. The article in part says:
"In the June 5, 1928 issue of
this bulletin data were presented
showing great variation in official
and unofficial estimates of the
value of agricultural production in
Oregon. That confusion still ex
ists seems evident from figures
recently published. For Instance,
one newspaper states, "Oregon's
Farm Yield Sets New High Rec
ord: Total Is $619,788,000." The
"Grand Total Value, 1928" was
SC76.269.360 according to the
-y - - ,
Another paper Bays, "Oregon
farmers got, or will get, $180,
000,000 for their products in
1929. This is 15,000,000 more
than the combined value of the
state's agricultural products in
But the "Estimated Cash Icome
Farm Production" in 1928 for
Oregon, as published by the United
States department of agriculture
was 8122,167,000 quite a differ
ent sum than $576,269,360 or
even $175,000,000. Divided equal
ly am oner approximately 60.000
Oregon farmers it would provide
about $2,000 not around $3,000
or $10,000 each.
To some extent perhaps, differ
ences in estimates may be ac
counted for in a tendency not to
recognize, or to forget, that farm
ers use a considerable part of their
product on the farm for feed and
food. The official estimated gross
value of crops for Oregon in 1928
was $96,075,000. compared to a
cash income of $57,608,000. For
animal production the gross value
was estimated at $74,307,000 and
the cash income at $64,559,000.
Inasmuch as even the official
estimates are qualified by the
statement that for most of the
miscellaneous groups adequate da
ta on production, sales and prices
were not available, the question
geems a fair one: Oregon farm in
come; What is it?"
