PRIOR TO THE WORLD WAR, THE UNITED STATES WAS ON AN EXPORT BASIS
AS TO FATS AND OILS, PRINCIPALLY LARD. THERE WERE NET IMPORTS OF
ANIMAL FATS IN THE YEARS 1935 AND 1936, FOR THE ONLY TIME IN HISTORY.
IN 1938 EXPORTS OF LARD INCREASED, AND IMPORTS OF COTTONSEED AND MARINE
OILS, PALM-KERNEL OIL AND FLAXSEED SHOWED MATERIAL DECREASES, MAKING
TOTAL NET IMPORTS OF ALL FATS AND OILS MORE THAN A BILLION POUNDS LESS
THA'N IN 1937.

T E FATS AT D OILS S IT TTAT I O T


(This issue of the Fats and Oils Siturtion presents pre-
liminary summary tables of statistics of production,
imports, exports, and stocks of primary fats and oils
for the calendar :year 1938, with co.mp..risons of n. few
earlier yearss)


Prelininary estimates indic-te that domestic production of

fats and oils fro. domestic pnd imported materials during 1338 7 .s

the largest since 1929. Domestic production front donm-stic -ni i-.-ort-

ed n.rterials totaled nore than 8.5 billion pounds. Tha incr-2ns, over

the g billion pounds produced in 1937 was due almost entirely to in-

creased production of domestic materials, inasnmch as there --"s a

reduction in imports of most raw nrterials for oil nnnufncture.

The increase in production and stocks during: the past 2 years

is attributed in large part to the increase in production of the

vegetable fats and oils. Domestic production and i:.iorts of these

products in 1937 were the lar.cst on record; and in the second half

of that year the recession in business resulted in decreased con-

sumption. Thus, at the beginnrinr of 193S, stocks of -.ll fats .nd

oils and of raw materials for their production wrer larger than any

on record except in Dccer!ber 1933.

Production continued to increase in 1938. And thou-h fats and

oils prices were markedly lo"er than in 1937 .nnd izorts .rere btout

1 billion pounds less, total stocks on Decneber 31 --rer -e -ven larger

than at the be-innin- of 1938. The December 31 stock s iere the

largest ever reporte1 (See table 7).







FOS-24


Prices

Prices of all fats and oils averaged sli:.htly lower in
January 1939 than in December 1938, and much lower for the year
1938 than for 1937. In January 1939, butter was more than 6
cents a pound lower than a year earlier and more than 1.5 cents
per pound lower than in December 1938. Crude cottonseed oil was
four-tenths of a cent lower in January 1939 than in December
1938, and averaged 1.3 cents lower for the year 1938 than in
1937. Crude coconut oil averaged 2.8 cents lower for the oear.
Other oils showed similar reductions in price.

Inorts and exports

Imports of fats and oils increased from around 1.3 billion
pounds In 1932 to more than 2.7 billion in 1937. T-is increase
was r'ue in part to reduced production in this country and the
reduction in accumulated stocks, and in part to an improvement
in demand resulting in increased consumption and higher prices.

The year 1937 was the third consecutive year that total
net imports passed the 2 billion-pounr rark, whereas in the
depression year of 1932 total net imports 'yore a little more than
500 million pounds and in the boom year of 1929 reached 1,068
million pounds.

Preliminary estimates of imports ,f fats and oils in the
calendar year 1938 indicate that net imports of all vegetable
oils plus average oil equivalent of imported oleasinous raw
materials totaled about 1,694 million pounds, or about 850
million pounds less than in 1937 the record year. Exoorts
and shipments of lard totaled 234 million pounds, and imports
of other animal fats were low, therefore net exports of all
animal fats totaled about 167 million pounds. T:is makes a
grand total of about 1.5 billion pounds of net imports of all
vegetable and animal fats and oils and oil equivalent of raw
materials in 1938, compared -ith about 2.5 billion pounds in
1937. The major part of the decrease was in flaxseed, palm-
kernels and oil, palm, cottonseed, and tung oils, and marine
animal oils. Decreases were also shown in imports of sesame
seed, perilla, rape, and sunflower oils, rnd tallo'-. Imports
of flaxseed in 1938 were only about half the imports in 1937.
Airports of coconut oil and oil equivalent of copra in 1938
were the largest since 1933.

fottoaseed oil

Cottonseed oil production in the calendar year 1938 was somewhat
larger than in the calendar year 1937, because a considerable portion
of the cottonseed from the enormous cotton crop of 1937 was crushed
during the first half of 1938. Imports of cottonseed oil in 1938
totaled only 83 million pounds compared with over 200 million pounds
imported in 1937. But consumption was less, and in spite of the reduced
imports and the anslercotton crop of 1938 stocks of cottonseed oil, in
terms of crude oil, plus the approximate oil equivalent of cottonseed
on hand were practically the same in December 1938 as in December 1937.

Pi ces of crude cottonseed oil, f.o.b. S. E. mills averaged
6.71 cents per pound in 1938 compared with 8.01 cents in 1937.

Other domestic vegetable oils

The production of soybean oil, corn oil, cod peanut oil in 1938
was the largest on record. Stocks were larger at the end of the year,
and prices throughout 1938 averaged considerably lower.

Lard

Lard production under Federal inspection in the calendar year
1938 is reported at 1,076 million pounds compared with 787 million
pounds in 1937. Estimates of production other than federally inspected
will not be available for several weeks, but on the basis of past
relationships a total production of somewhere near 1.7 billion pounds
may reasonably be assumed.

Exports of lard, including shipments to non-contiguous territories,
in 1938 totaled 234 million pounds, the largest quantity exported since
1934.

Prices of lard averaged more than 3 cents a pound lower in 1938
than in 1937, and 2 cents a pound lower than the average price of
compounds and vegetable cooking fats.

Marine animal oils

Production of whale and fish oils under the American flag was
somewhat lower in 1938 than in 1937. Imports were considerably lower,
but stocks at the end of the year were the largest for that date in
recent years.

/Preliminary.
Marine mammal, fish, and fish-liver oils.
SEdible and inedible not separately reported prior to April 1936.
Includes oleo oil.
Reported as edible.
Crude and refined converted to crude basis.
Estimated imports of rapeseed oil, based on stocks in bonded warehouses.
SImported seed have been mostly used for planting. No crushings of rapeseed
have been reported, but it is known that some was crushed in 1935 and 1936.
Estimates of 7 million pounds in 1935 and 6 million pounds in 1936 are
based on the excess of imports over previous averages.
