Hog Production
Eases eff; Hog
Corn Ratio Down
A significant change has occurred
in the hog price ration at Chi
cago and in the intentions of farm
ers in the United States to produce
hogs, according to information pre
pared by the agricultural extension
service at Oregon State college.
With the hog-corn price ratio at
11.7 late in December 1943, compar
ed with 16.2 a year previous, hogs
are worth 30 percent less in ex
change for corn. With net income to
feeders materially reduced, the gov
ernment pig crop report indicates
that hog production will decline in
1944, although the hog-com ratio is
still considerably higher than it has
been in some previous years.
The pig crop report shows that
the downtrend was noted last fall
with a smaller pig crop than ex
pected, although the number of pigs
farrowed in the UnUited States was
10 percent above the fall crop of
1942. The number of pigs to be far
rowed next spring was indicated at
16 percent fewer than in the spring
eg 1943. If farmers actually produce
the number of hogs indicated for
1944, the fall and spring pig crops
combined will still be the largest on
record, except in 1943. The number
of pigs raised in 1943 was about 67
percent above the 10-year average
and 17 percent more than in 1942.
Information received from the
War Food Administration by the
extension service regarding hog
price supports states that the sched
ule in effect in Oregon during De
cember 1943 will be continued un
til further notice. This means $13.75
at Portland for good and choice 200
to 300 pound butcher hogs until
otherwise announced.
Effective Oct. 1, 1944 until March
31, 1945, however, it has been an
nounced that the support price at
Chicago for good choice butcher hogs
190 to 230 pounds is to be $12.50,
compared with the current support
price at Chicago of $13.75 for 200 to
300 pound hogs.
Resumption of rehearsals by the
Music Study club chorus is an
nounced by Mrs. O. G. Crawford,
director, who states that the chorus
will meet Tuesday evening, Jan. 18,
at the Ciawford residence adjoin
ing the Gazette Times office. Re
hearsals were discontinued over the
holidays and further deferred be
cause of the epidemic of flu.
