. Illinois farmers' outlook letter [microform]. Agriculture -- Illinois; Agriculture -- Economic aspects Illinois. PROSPECTIVE MEAT SUPPLIES FOR I9U5 AHD 19^6 by L. F. Stlce, Extension Marketing Specialist The Bureau of Agricultui^l Economics has forecast that total meat output will continue at a relatively low level during the summer months, but during October, November, and December of 19^5 will be nearly equal to that of these corresponding months of 19'*^. Total meat production for the year 19^5 is now expected to be 9 percent less than the rec- ord 19^^ production. The kind of meats on the market for the next eight to ten months will be somewhat different than at times in the past. In the latter part of 19*^3 and first half of 19^^ the total live weight of hogs slaughtered under federal inspection ex- ceeded live weight slaughter of cattle and calves (see chart). With the exception of December 19^'+> the total live weight of cattle and calves slaughtered since last August has exceeded hog slaughter. The number of cattle on farms Jcuiuary 1, 19^5 was only 1 percent less than the record number January 1, 19^, while the I9U5 spring pig crop was down 7 percent. Thus monthly slaughter of pork from now until the 19^5 fall raised pigs are marketed can be expected to remain below the fall and winter months of 19^^-^5. Heavy marketings of grass cattle will maintain beef supplies during the rest of 19^5* but supplies in the first half of 19^6 will depend largely upon the outlook during the coming months for feed- ing cattle in the corn belt. It is expected that the demand for meat will continue strong through the remainder of 19^5 and early 19^6 and prices of meat animals will be maintained at or near present levels.
