Feeder pige are selling at sacrifice prices in some sections of Illinois. This raises the question of the short-time outlook for hog prices. In addition to availability of feeds and lahor, what are some of the facts which should "be consid- ered? As illustrated in the charts "below, marketing of hogs is normally- heavi- est in the v;inter when the bulk of the previous spring's pig crop is sold, and in the late spring and early summer when marketings of the previous fall's pig crop is heaviest. Prices decline during these periods but usually rise during the months in between. Although the range in price between the government support price of $15, 75 and the ceiling price of $1^1-.75 does not allow a normal seasonal fluctuation in hog prices, same rise In prices may be expected from the government support levelv^ How- ever, when the 19^5 fall-pig crop, now estimated at U7.8 million head, and 10 percent larger than the record 19^2 fall pig crop, is marketed, slaughter will be heavy and prices may again decline to support levels. Hogs sold in between these periods of large marketings should sell at ceiling prices. Normally, March is a month of light marketings and higher prices. Feeder pigs which can "be gotten ready for market in March or early April are worth more than present hog prices indicate. L. F.
