WORLD HOG AIID PORK PROSPECTS

.-uarterly Su.n.mary

Federally inspected ho0 slaughter during the remainder of tne present

piarketing year, which ends Septe.Lber 30, 1933, is expected to be somewhat smaller

han in the corresponding period of 1932, t'ith all of the reduction occurring

l ,the end of April, accordi--i to the Annual Outlook report for 1335, recently

released b- this Bureau. The decrease in nu.ibers will be offset in part by

an increase in average weiG.ts. Little increase in the 1933 sprin- pi: crop

in the Urited States is indic; ted, but a substantial reduction 1.1 -ro:ea-.

g. production seems probable.

Hog prices in the United States advanced somewhat during J-,aiu.ry, but

prices in ?urope averaged sli,5;-tly lower. Pork prices were steady to lo'er in

dbLt the United Stetes and Europe in January, but lard prices were strengthened

during the :ionth.

In accordance with the temporary agreement li'.iting imports of bacon and

..irs into the United Kingdom, the receipts of these products were reduced

&urint Decemlber and January. The limit-tions, which -uider the ter s )- tL.e

origincl agreement expired Ja2.uary 22, 1933, ..ave been continued for La.other

monta. Despite this reduction in s ,,lies no mntcrirl nadvance in t.:. pricess

Summinary of Hog numbers

The recent British restrictions on the i.n':orts of foreign hog products
may be expected to cause a furt-er reduction in breeding operations in those
Europemi countries which dispose of a considerable portion of their hog products
in the Britis.: markets, principally Denmark, Poland and the iTetherlan.s. rieavy
marketing and unprofitable prices during, the past 2 years nave already caused
a reduction iii numbers in taose countries. On the ot-ier ha.d, a stimulus
has obviously- been 6iven t.e industry in the Britisn Isles.

Only tvo countries have reported nunbc-rs so far in the autumn or winter
of 1932, i.e. Germ-rny and Denmark:. These estimates s.,ow that nu:nbers in
those two countries were s-.aller at the beSiniing of 193o tnan a year earlier,
wnen n'jj.bcrs were hinhcr tnan for some time. Hog nuinbirs in European countries
reac.led a peak in late 1931 or early 1932 and since t:i.e; have been declining.
The nwmiber in nine J/ countries reporting at tle beginning. of 1932 was
10.3,766,000, an increase of 7 per cent compared .rith numbers a year earlier.
In t.-e sevcn uj.ropcan couitrics reporting on that date, n'inbcrs at the
beginniii of 1932 were 2 per cent above tne same drte of 1931.

Zy .lid-summncr of 1352 nu.nbers in Earopa.a- countries had declined coz-
sidurably, the total for 10 2/ countries being esti!natcd at 41,604,000, a
reluction of 8 p.,r cent compared with tre preceding su.-.ier. Th.e British
Isles snowevd can increase in .aucrs and a further increase is expected this
year. T:-d decrease in the six continental countries reportin5 was 9 per cent.

Hog Numbers in Specified Countrie-s

HoL, nuriberrs in Germany on December 1, 1932 were reported at 22,800,000
nead, E. reduction of 4 par cent colnpared with the saine date of 1931, end 3 per
cent co-'ocred '..:ith Dfcembcr 1, 1930. The decrease Wrs not as large as was
anticipEted due to the slow 'e.rketin6 during 1932, states Assist-.t Agricul-
tural Attache Donald 7. Christy at Bcrlia. Although the Danish census of
Novc.ibcr 20, 1932 is not strictly comparable with any previous census, a re-
duction: is i:-'.icFted es conmarcd with the figures for January 15 of tlih sane
year and -.iso as cor.:.parcd with t-.h January 15, 1921 estimate. The decrease
as conmpc.:cd ';itiL t,.e Jun'i 20, 1932 estimate was vary slight. Th' total number
of brood sows in Germaniy c d Denmark decreased durin- tic past 2 yeo.rs from
aporo:.:i.;atcly 2,751,000 head at tic begi:.iins of 1931 to 2,352,000 her.d .t the
ei.:..iini oi 1933, a decr,-se of 15 opr cent. Of ton above n-Lunber only
1,425,00j, vWer reported in farrow in sLrnrly rnid. Denmark, accordi.n7 to the
la.test cstii:,ctes, compared with 1,476,000 a :. ar earlier and 1,693,0.*0 in 1931.

'Ahii ::o estimates of percentage c;-harges in no, numnbrs a.re available
for t.-! .'ct'herlands since mid-summer of 1932, the -,olicy of the Vn.rkc-sccntrjle
('7Ttherle..ds ihog Central) calls for r considcra.blc reduction i-n ..:nocrs,
e.ccordi :L to Mr. Christy. The hog fe.ed )rice ratios are reported ;-.s still far

S In Poland and Estoni. hog numbers were lower in mid-summer 1932 than in
1931, with prospects of further reductions in 1933. In Czechoslovakia it
seems probable that the number of brood sows on Janurry 1, 1933 -ay -:a.v bee:.
somnewhrt larger thea at the s-r.e date of 1932. There vwern u-doubt.dly fewer
on hand, however, than ot the same d-te of 1931. There ws a reduction in
brood sows in Czechoslovakia from 4-42,000. on January 1, 1931 to 349,000 or.
the same drtc of 1932, decrease of 21 per cent. It is reported by;
Consul GencTel Frr.-k C.-Leo that a marked snortage of fodder in 1931 lei to
the slc:.gt:eriig of pies which the f'.rinmrs were unable to kep. Th first
mid-year census on July 1, 1932 reported numbers at 3,082,000'.

S The number of hogs in t-.e Uni.ted States on Jaur, 1', 1932 :v-s 9 -er
Scet above .the nnumbr at tL.c same d:.te of 1931. Althougn the total pig
crop.in 1932 wps .smaller than in- 1931, the nui.ber on Jonuary 1, 1933, is not
expected to diff-r greatly from the number on the correspo.idiigZ d-te a -cn.r
Searlier. In Canadn the June.1, 1932 estinptc of hog nunbc-rs s-iowed a
Reduction of 2 per coat; the number being 4,639,000 as compared with
S4,717,000 in June, 1931. Present indications arc that the spring oi- crop
:in Cannad, may show some docry-st due to 6 fewer nuinbor of sows to f-rrow in
Sthe s.rian of 1933, according to the CO-rndian Governient report for
SDecember 1932.

slaughter during the remainder of the marketingg year is expected 'o be about
1,000,000 -ead with all of the reduction occurring before ::ay 1.

According to the Bureau's Annual Outlook Report for 1933, .no slauhter
under Federal ins-ection in the 1932-33 marketing year will babdl 09e tweeni
44,000,000 head, as comJared with 46,655,000 head in 1931-32. The report
also states that because of the large supplies of corn and other feeds, acnd
a hog-corn price ratio favorable for feeding, weights of iogs slai-htered in
1932-33 will be heavier than in the precediAn year, and probably above aver-
age, and tnat this increase will tend to offset in part the decrease in the
number slaughtered.

Present indications are that the number of sows to farrow in tne spring
season of 1933 will not be much l-ar,er thin in 1932, either for tae country
as a whole or for the Corn Belt StP.tes. The estimated number to farrow in
the spiingr of 1933, based on the breedin, intentions reported in tne Decerber
1932 pi- survey was about 2 per cent larger in each, case. A table suz-.ariz-
ing the results of this survey is shown on pa&e 6.

Wholesale prices of fresh pork advanced somewhat daring the first
half of Januara but by the e;id of the month most of the advance had been lost.
Cured pork .-rices advanced slightly throughout the month, but larl r..ices
declined somewhat. The co-moosite wholesale price of hog products .t .ew York
averaged $9.32 per 100 pounds in Janl.ar: as compared witn $9.41 in December
and $12.27 in the corresponding :-onth of 1932.

United States exports of lard during December were considerably lerier
than in November but the:' were smaller tnan tne relatively large export
moveinent in December 1931. Total exports o. ;jorI: in Decei.ber, on t.,e ot-.er
hand, were materially s..aller tan in the precedin-g ,onith, but thneL \"ere bout
the sane as those of tne corresponding month a year earlier. Exports of pork
for the 3 months, October to December, were 13 per cent smaller t.c.i in ti.e
corresponding period in 1931. Srli'inents of lard Irom the principal ports
during Janluar, were considerably larger th.n in recenber, but sAipo:.eAts c
pork were slightly smaller.

Bacon exports in DeceimbLr a.mountin, to 1,734,000 pounds were r.ii ::tl
larger than in the preceding month, but t..el' were smaller tat-. in December
1931. T.e United Xin. om, Cubo, and Swed.e, took larger quantities tran ini

about 4,000,000 pounds larger in December tW!an in the preceding month. Total
exports of lard from October to December 1932 amounting to 140,525,000 pounds
were about 4 per cent smaller than in the corrcs6onding period in 1931.

S A statistical summary of the hog Lnd pork situation for the first
quarter of tl.e 1932-33 marketing year ap-ears on page 7 The reduction
in the n'uber of hogs slaughtered during the 3-montns periodd of 11 per cent
was offset in part by an increase of about 4 >.;r cent in the average dressed
weigh t. Contrary to tne usual seasonal tendency, storage holdings of hog
products were slightly reduced from the beginning of tne period,October 1,
1932 to the end of the period, December 31, 1932. exportss of pork and lard
during the 3-months period were also sliAntlyl smaller than a year earlier.
As a res-.lt of the decline in storage holdings and the reduced exports,
the apparent consumption of pork and lard from Federally inspected production
from October to December 1932 was only 2 per cent smaller than a year
earlier, although tne reduction in- the total dressed weight of hog slaughter
was about 7 per cent. Lard production per 100 pounds of live weight during
the first quarter of tie current marketing year was larger than last year
and larger than the 5-year average, but the total lard production under Federal
inspection w-as 3 per cent smaller t.ian last year, because of the relatively
greater reduction in hog sla.ugh,.ter. As a result of the reduction in storage
holdin:os of lard. and the smaller exports, the apparent cohsu-r.tion of lard
from October to December 'c,-s about 2 per cent larger than in the corresponding
period in 1931.

Reviewing the month ended January .21, 1953, 1Ir. Reed reports that the light
seasonal demand and low purchasing power have prevented any material advance in
prices. The heavy stocks of bacon which' depressed the market in December, however
have been practically cleared. Bc.con i ports have reached totals within the
restricted amounts agreed to, despite some exceeding of quotas by some continental
countries. The limitc.tions, scheduled to and Januar 22, were continued for
another month, after which further reductions in the total amount allowed entry
are expected. During the first part of January the proportion of heavy descrip-
tions of continental sides was excessive with respect to demand .nd prices
declined. During the latter half of the month, however, the cheapness of such
cuts proved attractive aznd better clearances *cere made. See table of recent
bacon receipts, page 11.

The easier tcndenc, during January in the Liv:rpool market for American
short cut green hnas brought the aver-ce price for the month to a low point at
.6.72 per 100 pounds, and prices continued downward in early February. Hams met
Very quiet demand in DTcember .nd January:, M! r. Reed reports. Since the first
of the year, sterling prices for United States short cut hams have tended lower
in contrast with an increase in prices in J.nuary, 1951. The low demand and
declining prices have been accentuated by low consumer purchasing power.
Reccipts have been smaller as agreed by exporting countries, the December import
total standing at only 3,578,000 pounds -gainst 7,996,000 pounds in November and
8,596,000 pounds in December, 1931. All important h-jn supplying countries except
Argentinr sent less in Dcoember, the United States and Polish shipments showing
the grcL.test reduction. Imports of h1-ls during the fi-'st h..lf of Jacnuary woro
much smaller th.n in the first half of Dccinbor, all countries except Canada
shipping reduced amounts.

The Janua.ry decline in thu Liverpool price of American refined lard
brought the avcerae for that ronth lower to ,,6.78 per 100 pounds. Prices were
steady, with c. slightl, increasing tendency in the first half of January, but
declined after the middle of the month. Early Fcbrur.r: prices wore considerably
below the JLnuary .avcrae.. The latter, however, w.s 11 cnts above the average
jrovc.iling in the first h-i.lf of 1932, but under those of more recent months.
'T.o Ir-rd futures market and forvird sales have sho;n si:.ilC.r tendencies, bu-
declines in prices for American refined lard have been pr.rtially offst by the
exchange situation. Liverpool lard stocks on Februc.r 1 w.ere la.rgor than, for
several months and about double the stocks of a y-ear ago. Lard imports in
December were somewhat smaller th'a.n usual and below a. 'ear cr-lier. For the firs"
a months of the 1932-33 season, hov.:cver, such imports v.'ere slightly 1 aror than
in the correspondin. 1951-_-2 period.

Fresh pork supplies at London Ccntra.l i:.rikets declined after Christmas,
the January total of British a.nd Irish receipts, at 8,584,000 pounds, being
the smr.,llost in scvera.l imoiths. That figure \w.s still above the Jnnu:.ry 1952
tota.l, but such reccipts so fr.r in 1932-33 ha.ve bcen sminller than in 1931-32.
The current reduction hr.s bean l.rg.ly due to sma.llcr receipts from the Irish
Free State, but there hc.v: been i.so smaller n.rkctings of English Fork. The
oorl market hc.s boon firi. :7ith only nodcrr.te price ..iov--!.ints. Tra.d in
competitive moats hns been quiet on the v.hole. Rcduccd domestic hog mz.rkc-tings
is partly seasonal, but qu-rrantincs resulting from foot-nnd-mouth disc.so
outbreaks also h.vo been c. factor, especially in the marketing of store, or
feeder pigs. Thr m-.Jor mr.rkets, ho.cver, so f.r have not boen ac.foected b: the

Irish Free State, hog killings for.curing \ere the smallest in Jaiuar- for any-
month since last Jul:, and considerable; below figures for Januar;, 19--2.

Countries Important in British I.arket Supplies

Denmark

Both official and private agencies in Denmark have t aken steps to reduce
the number of hogs slaughtered and to be offered for slaughter for export trade,
according to Consul E. 1'. Groth at Couenhagen. Since December 19, the usual
discount on prices paid for hogs over and under the prescribed weight have
been doubled. The weely- quotation for standard bacon hogs now applies only
to hogs. weighing, between 110 and 1.5 pounds, dressed weight. Iieasures have
been taken to reduce the delivery of hogs to slaughter houses in keeping with
developments in British market restrictions and in domestic requirements.
Producers have been ur-ed to delay fattening of hogs to reduce forced market-
ings as much as possible.. Danish exporters anticipate an increasing degree
of restriction on pork imports into British markets as 1933 advances.
Indications are that. there is little interest 'jin ta-kn in the possible
development of new or less important markets ;or Danish. cured pork.

The inventor-- of Fetherlands hogs made i.: September October 1952 in
connection with the work of the Ho" Cohtrol Ccntral resulted in a total of
2,735,000 head being reported, according to Vice Consul Sidney Ii. Brorme, at
_otterdamn. The census of June 1930 showed total hogs at 2,017,000 head. It
is pointed out, hc''ever, that the 1932 data were gathered as of different
periods during Septomber Octobur, aind that the 1350 I figures are regarded as
inconmplete. The Control, therefore, modified the 1932 returns to 2,600,000
as of Septomber 31, and the 1930 figure to 2,622,000 head as of the same date.

Hog receipts for recent weeks have run considerably below a year ago.
The December total of 255,000 head received at 14 cities was the lowest for that
month of an.r year since December, 1926. Total receipts for the first 3 months
of the 1932-33 season ran 10.8 per cent bolor, the comparable 1931-52 total.
The Ducember slaughter of -55,000 head at 36 centers also vas the smallest
for December since 1923. Total killings at those points for the 1932-33
season to Decme'.r '.1 v'erc 18.3 per cent belo'.- last season's corresponding
figures. Bacon imports \ore seasonally smaller in December and also smaller
than a year ago, rs h."ve been the bacon im)orts each month so far in the.
1932-_'3 season. .7ith the exc.ntion of last :,-Lr.r, ho'.:ovcr, the December 1932
imports oT bacon ..,re larr-cr than those of any December since 1924.

The upr-.rd novmu.nt in lr-xd price .s at H.mburg during January brought the
aVcra.e for the aonth up to -18.70 per 100 pounds. Eu-rl:- February prices ocro
fairly close to the January average which u.s 75 cents higher th.n the J.nuacry
1932 j.verage. The current figure is the highost for any month since December,
1531. Consul SchnLro at Hamboiurg reports th.t consignment stocks of Irrd were
ver; low rt that port on January 1,1933, arrivals during December having boon
s::all. Total lard imports into German;' for December, at 18,175,000 pounds, rwore
smaller than in either October or Fovombo-r but exceeded some-,h:t the Decembor,
1931 in.orts. Thi cumulative 1S92-33 total to December 31 woas 17.1 per cent
larger than the corresponding 1931-32 figures. Effective February 15,
