Feed Crops And Livestock
J j Supplies of both forage crops
j J and feed grains will be more
j j than sufficient in most of the i
j J | important feeding areas of the !
J ] | Middle West to furnish ample j
J j rations for the livestock now on j
j j farms. Corn supplies are larger I
[ j than in any recent year, and are I
J i near the 1928-32 average, where-1
11 j as livestock numbers are consid|
'erably below average. Larger sup-j
' ' plies for feed grains per animal I
JI: are expected to result in heavier
S J J feeding of livestock now on farms
! I and an increased production of
j ! hogs, fat cattle, and dairy and
J' I poultry products. But even after
j (| allowing for this increased feed'
f' ing, the carryover of feed grains,
J especially com, at the end of the'
J 1937-88 marketing year may be
Jfj well above average,
jli The general level of feed grain
jjj prices will average considerably
2 below the higher levels of 193-135
a nil 1636-37, but may aver*
age slightly higher than 2 years
J ago. The level of corn prices may
J( oe about the same as 2 years
Jj ago. The price of oats is expect
if. eel 10 average sngnuy nigner,
% and the price of barley materially
#! higher. Livestock-feed price ratios
ft are expected to be favorable to
ft producers of livestock during the

The sitHatioh of the livestock [
producers and of farmers who
use all of their own feed grain
will be much more favorable than
during the last few years. For
those who sell a large part of
their grain or buy most of their
livestock, the situation will probably
be somewhat less favorable
than it has been during the last
few years.
Poultry And Eggs For 1938
In sizing up the poultry, egg
and turkey outlook for- next year,
the Bureau of Agricultural Ecohomios
The feed-egg price situation to'
improve front the Producers';
viewpoint, and by early 19:18 to
be mlieh more favorable than a
year earlier;
The spring hatch in 1938,
therefore, to be greater than the
spring hatch in 1937;
Poultry marketings to be less
than those of a year earlier from
July 1937 to June 1938 because
of the small 1937 hatch, and to
exceed marketings in the remainder
of 1938 because of the larger-1
1938 hatch:
Poultry consumption, therefore,!
to be under that of a year pre-1
vious in the period July 1937 to
June 1938 and to' be above for
the remainder of 1938:
Fall and winter broiler pro-!
duct ion, 1937-38, to be heavy but
prices are not expected to be j
correspondingly depressed except |
possibly for short periods in view j
of the smaller supplies of other
Poultry storage stocks, first j
half of 1938, to be above aver- j
sec heemrse of the heavy sum-1
rner carry-over in 1937 but below
1937 because of the lower marketings;
Turkey production in 1937 to
be about 10 percent less than
the record crop of 1936;
The turkey hatch in 1938 to
be greater than the hatch in
1937 because of a better- feed
Turkey prices in the fall of
1937, to be above those of 1936
and possibly above 1935 and to
decline in the fall of 1938 with
the prospective larger crop;
Chicken prices, because of the
above prospective conditions, to
advance in the period July-December
1937 and although expected
to be above 1937 during the

The rate of egg; production per':

Egg marketing in 1938, to be I
under that of 1937; I<
Egg storage stock, last half of <
1938, to be much less than in s
1937, because of smaller mark- f
eting; e
Egg prices throughout 1938 to i
be above corresponding periods i
of 1937 because of the prospec-ji
tive supply situation. i

The number of bogs slaughter- 1
ed in the 1937-38 marketing year, r
which began October 1, probably |
will be somewhat smaller than in I
1936-37, but larger than In either
1934-35 or 1935-36. The Bureau L
of Agricultural Economics furth-' ^
er states in its 19.38 hog outlook j x
that average weights this year c
are expected to be heavier than r
in 1936-37, when they were be-11
low average because of feed scar-1 x
city. The increase in average j j
weights will largely offset the re- j j
duction in numbers slaughtered,
hence total supplies of hog pro- 1
ducts in the current year proba-1
bly will be about as large as a
year earlier. Seasonal changes in j e
hog marketing through the year t
in 1937-38 will be much different i

food shortage resulted in heavy I
marketings in the first half of i
the year and very light market- i
ings in the second half. 1
Domestic demand for hog pro- t
ducts, including both consumer t
demand and storage demand, in 3
this country in the 1937-38 mar- :
kcting year, probably will be less 1
favorable than in 1936-37. Little \
improvement in export demand i
for United States hog products 1
is expected. Hog prices in 1937-38, t
therefore, are expected to aver-11
age lower than in 1936-37.
Seasonal price movement will r
be somewhat different this year I
from last, since the average price 1
for the second half of the current
year is not expected to show as 3
great an increase over that of the t
first half as it did in 1936-37. ; 1
