Hog Numbers

T're results of the British restrictions of imports of foreign hog product
are now becoming apparent in the reduced numbers reported in northern luropean
countries which erport chiefly tc the British market. In the hog raising
countries of the Danube Basin 1/, which market their surplus chiefly in Central
2iro-e, the carry-over of liogs into 1933 was large, according to agricultural l
Attache' Louis G. Michael.

The exportable surplus from the Danube countries is mostly in the form
of live hogs. Converting these hogs to a meat basis, it is found that the
combined total of hog and hog products marketed by these countries in Central
Europe was roughly one-third as largo in 1930, and onl, one-fifth as large
in 1932, as the quantity ported tohe uae British marke.-ct bi Denmark and the
Netherlands alone. Poland, which is not included with either group, formerly
exported a large number of live hogs to central European countries. In 1931
and 1932, however, live hog exports fell off very considerably, whereas bacon
exports to the United Kingdom increased considerably.

The total exports of hog and pork products from Denmark and the Nether-
lands, excluding the small number of live hogs oxportod from Denmark, amounted
to approximately 1,181,000,000 pounds in 1932, 84 percent of which wcnt to the
United Kingdom, wh.roas exports from the Danube countries to Central Europe,
including live ho;s converted to a moat basis v:re only 199,000,000 pounds.
Poland exported 1'8,000,000 pounds of bacon alone, principally to England, in
1952, compared wi.h only 54,000,000 pounds in 1930,

At the beginning of 1953 hog numbers in continental European countries
wore d. finitoly lower than at the same date of 1932. Estimates for six 2/
cous-trics show tha: numbers oi: Januiar; 1, 1933, wore 36,369,000 a decroase of
4 percent compared with the same date last year and v;ire approximately the same
as on. January 1, 1931. Including the United States, numbers in sovon countries
in 1953 were approximately the same as at thoesame date a year ago. These
seven countries support roughly about one-third of the world total including
Russia and China; excluding those two countries they constitute almost half
of the total. The decrease in numbers was in the northern European countries
which mark..t their surplus principally in the British market. Numbers increased
in countries of the Danube Basin which market hogs, lard, ot cetera in central
Europoen countries mostly. The numbcr of hogs in England and Wales and in the
Netherlands are not included in the totals given above. Latest estimates,
however, indicate an increase in thu first named country at the beginning of
1933, and a decrease in the latter as compared r.ith 1932.

Brood sows in three 3/ countries reporting at the beginning of 1933
are estimated at 12,605,000 or approximately the sane as 'in 1932, and 1 percent
below 1931. In the two European countries, the number at the beginning of
1933 was 6 percent below the same date of 1932 and 15 percent belo':w 1931.
In the Netherlands sows in farro: vcwro hieghost at the beginning of 1931 and
decreased 20 percent in 1932. No estimate is as -,t available for 1935.

estimated at 1,064,C00 head in. 19.2 compared rith 1,499,000 in 1931. The
decrease in slaughter for export in 1932 was practicall; balar.-ed by increased

United States

Ho, prices were steady to lower ,lurin-, the first .'-ee!ks of April, but
advanced -.arin7 the last weeoL of the month an& the first w:eel; in lay.. The
advance :as largely a reflection of the gener.Ll rise in commodity prices a.d
some improvement in the storage demand for ho'- products, since slaughter
supplies of hogs were relatively large throughout April. The rising trend
of *rices during late April and earl L.:ay, this year v.'as in marked contr?.st to
the sharply d.onwrard trend which prevailed i1L April and J.:ay last yc;r. The

weights. Increased marketing from the fall pig crop also were of some
im:.prt.nce in this respect. Reports indicate that approximately 50 percent
of the .arketings during recent weeks have consisted of fall pigs, which
is about normal for this sCasoji of the year.

Inspected slaughter from October 1932 to April 1933, the period usually
conrsidereid as the marketi:lg season of the spring pig crop, amounted to
27,76.,000 heal, which was a decrease of 6.6 percent from the slaughter during
the corresponding months a year earlier. This decrease is largely a reflection
of the reduction in- 1932 sprin pig crop. Slaug:ter supplies during the
remainder of the marketing .year, May to September, are expected to be slightly
larger than in the corresponding months a .-ear -earlier, .since a moderate
increase in the 19'32 fall piq cro-p was indicated by the -December Pig Survey.
Storage holdings of hog products are relatively small, and the reduction in
theso stocks as co:rmared iL';t. a year earlier wi-ll probably offset, any increase
in sliuchter suiplies during the summer months..

Corn prices advanced sharpl- during the -last half of .iarch and April.
The average price of NIo. 3 Yello.- corn in April was 54.5 cents per bushel which
was the highest monthly avera e since February 1952. This marked advance in
corn prices resulted in a reduction in the hog-corn price ratio. .Based on
farm prices as o0 the 15t'. of ,:e month the hog-corn :.-rice ratio in the N.orth
Central States was l.5 as conl;.pred w-ith 20.4 in iLarch and 12.3 in April last
year. Should the prevailing relationship between hog prices and corn prices
continue it "-:ill tend to discourage the feeding of hogs to heavy weights.

'..oles.le prices of cured pork were stead; to lower during the first 3
weeks of'April, bi:t advanced soriewhat during: : the last weel: of the month.
Prices of fresh pori wzeak:ened somewhat during April and early May. Lard prices
rose sharply in April. The average price of refined lard at Chicago during
the last week of April was ';6.50 per 100 pounds, an advance of about $1.50
per 1CO pounds since early i.iarch. TX -.,i adv:uice was due largely to the
suspension of gold payments jad the inflation legislation recently adopted in
this country. The composite /wholesale price of hog products at New York
averaged 110.05 per 100 Dounds in April as compared ith ,.10.30 in March and
11.24 in April 19352


United States exports of pork during 1:arch ,\ere considerably larger
than in February, but botal pork exports for the first half of the 1942-35
mirarleting year were aoout 2 per ent smaller thax. those of a year earlier.
Lard exports continued to decli-e during ILarch, Lut the total for the
month was .bout 10 percent larger than that of !..,rch 19J2. Exports of lard
from October to M.arch, t]h first half of present marketing ,ear, were
about 2 percent lar :er than during tie same period in 1931-32. Shipments
of pork from the principall ports during April were somewhat larger than in
iarch, but lard shipments from these ports continued to decrease.


Bacon exports during Larch amounting to 1,278,000 were larger than
in February or in .larch a year ago, but the. constituted a relatively small


-g-








proportion of the total United State.- exports of pork. Cuba was the largest
importer of United Status bacon during t,:e month. Sweden, United Kirngdor,
Germ.any and Italy also took small qu.rntitit-.

Exports of hEm-; a:id .:;.oulders durir:. ..rch totalir.r 5,707,000 pounds

Csncanda

Hog prices iT: Cenada advanced during April. The average price of
bacon hogs at Toronto for the 4 woelks ended April 27, according to the
Canadicn Livestock Iiarket Report, was .4.09 per 100 pounds (United States
currency) as .compared with 4,,=.38 in :~arch a-d -.O in to corresponding
.'oeks of April 19EJ. Prices have bc.;n advancing sine- :.id-February, with
a very sh-'.rp rise during i.arch.

Macrketings of hogs in Canada during. Jcnurr.r a,.d February .-ere somewhat
smaller than those of the corrospondir.g months C year earlier. During Mr.rch
.'nd April, however, rm,..rktings incren.sed, and m.rke.t supplies during both of
-chese months ,were Irrg.r than a yenr earlier. The total number of hogs graded
at Canadian stockyards and packing ~plrt5 during the first 18 weeks of 1933
(period ended May 4) amounted to 1,141,000 hcr.d, which vns only 1 percent loss
than thu grading during the corresponding :ceks of 1932. Grndings during
the 4 -Jeeks ended April 21 totaling 252,000 herd, wero about the same as
during Miarch and they vere 2 percent lrrgcr thc.n during the corresponding
.cks of April l-st yo.r.

exchange rats raised dollar quotations on Am-erican gre-n bellies at Liver-
pool to an .v:rr -e of 8.17 per 100 pounds for April, importer to ,holesrlor,
according to cabled advices from the London office of the Foreign Agricultur-
al S-rvicc. Danish V!iltshires made .C r.Yor..ge of 411.95, while Canadian
green sides rfc-ched ,10.03. All of the averages were substantial advances
over those cf other recent months, indicating more than seasonal strength
in the market. The gencr"l price luvl Iw.s sonmc.:/hat higher thi.n thc.t of a
year earlier. Prospects for further reductions in supply under the quotas
in force until June 30 Erc: m'intainirng the tone of the market, according to
jc-at Spccialist I.. E. Reed at London. The supply factor continues more
prominent than the demand factor. Good w'e.ther during the month ended
April 22 has assisted in the disposal of oth.r thcn strictly bacon cuts.
In n few quarters, however, there is some doubt thrt demand can be recon-
ciled to further a.dvr.rces in prices. The quotas have resulted in -an in-
creased proportion of better grades b.ing available and .a reduced proportion
of low zr grades. Some trr.de element:; feel tnat the situ-tion is not in
keeping with the demand by grr.des.

Americr.rn b.con, in light supply, has met a sto-.dy demand rt slowly
increasing prices. Cumberlc.nds are noi; priced at levels :.-ell above those
of this tine last ".;c.r. Cler.r bellies during April :e;re -t tl.e highest
point of the current sor.son, the price advancing about 8.5 percent during
the month. '4arch bLcon imports from the United Str.tes, at 375,000 pounds,
were about double the February figures, but continued to represent a very
insignificant sh: re of the total tr. de. Fror October 1 to :'A.rch 31, 1932-33,
imports 'tori th. United Statos represented only 38 percent of the corre-
sponding '_'31-Z figure. Imports from Cr.nrda are runz-ing slightly ahocad
of lust sec.so:r. L.rrch imports from Dornr.rk .,ere sor.e,.l.ct larger than in
tl.o preceding month, but still in keeping v.it : quota limitations, and well
beloe: lst yea..r. The season's totrl receipts from that country to r.rch 31

than in ,;arch 1952. So fnr this src.son, total bacon imports have run

quota months.

American snort cut green h.is a.t Liverpool rurr..rcd ,11.57 p.r 1C0
pour.ds during April, basis importer to wholesualr. That firure represented
a good advance over recent monthly averages, and was sliirtly higher than
prices obtained during most of April 1632. Unusually good weather during
April, ard the Easter holiday peric, helped ham consumption, i.:r. Reed states.
March har. imports exceeded Februar: ij..ports but were about E percent smaller
than in March 19532. Peceipts from ts.e United states were srmaleor than in
either comparable period. ?or tn'o current season to .,arch 31, total Iai.
imports exceeded slightly those of last season as a result of larger ship-
ments from the United Ztates and Cr: .ra. Despite larger arrivals, however,
ham stocks at Liverpool have not acc'ur.llater unduly.

Based or. l st year's corresponding imports, the total cured pork quotes
for the months ended iMay 22 and June 22 are 66,0'.1,00C rounds and '4,E3.&,00C
pounds respectively. The May quots represents a decrease" of 2.5 percent inl9.7

t-.i~iuCterd. There are no indications as yet as -to how .successfully domestic
-a.o:n is fillir.t the place of the Aamericar, product in those localities where
it was most popular before the duty on bhaon imports was levied, Irish bacon
e.ur-rs have-submitted to the government plans designed to improve the condition
of the' industry. The chief suggestions were: (1) A quarterly hog census to

Lanon pigs; (3) a 3-months priod of guaranteed prices and (4) control of
exports cf toin-bacor hogs.

'.;ith respect to plans urder consideration for cor.trolling the British
tog ir.dustry there are indications of considerable farmer opposition, accord-
ii.g to early April advices. At first, farmers apparently wore willing to
accept any sch.-eme whic.- gave promised of hirthor hog prices. Thure is opposition.
however, to tr.ose t.-rms of th.e Poport of the FRorganization Commission for
Pigs and Pig Products which call for considerable improvements in production
facilities, ard also to the contractual delivery of a specified quantity and
quality of hogs. In the matter of future import quotas for cured pork in
conjunction with the domestic hog control scheme, Lritish authorities are
now planrii.g conferences covering thu longer-time statistical basis for
quotas starting July 1.

Polani and .etherlands

In Poland, as in Denmark, shipments to Great Britain were increased be-
fore the Easter holiday period and decreased thereafter, to keep within the
quota limitations. Unofficial returns on arrivals at London of continental
Wiltshire sides during the first 3 we.res of April were somewhat smaller than
in the corresponding weeks of March. Similar fi. ires on receipts of iethcr-
laui'ls filtshire2 indicate that Auril receipts were -)r2ztically the same
as in the correspon'-ing weeks of '.arch. Total 4ritis:l imports of Net:.erlands
bacon darin'; the latter month were somewhat larger than in the preceding
month and also larger than a year aso. Such imports for tie current season,
October 1 to IMarch 31, were running ar.ead of last year.

imports dvwn to less than 7,000,000 pounds, one of the smallest monthly lard
import figures on record, according to information cabled by the Berlin office
of the Foreign Agricultural Service. Up to Mrrch, total lard imports for the
current season beginning October 1, 1932 nad shown a substantial lead over
the corresponding 1931-32 figures. By ?'arch.31, however, the current season's
imports were only 3.3 percent ahead of last season, with every indication
of going below last season wit-in a few weeks.

T.he Bureau's Berlin office transmitted a statement by the German Minister
of Fool and Agriculture indicating the desire of the government to make
Germany sclf-s-fficient in the matter of livestock feedstuffs as well as in
animal fats. Flacing oilseeds mid oil-cakes under the corn monopoly was a
r.easure ir kI epin,. with that policy in an effort to cut down dependence of
German fee-.ars u In tnese imported items. Farmers are warned that failure to
provide su'ficient feedstuffs in this ;.yar's farming programs will not
justify lat.cr complaints of scarce and high-priced feeds. With a consistent
carryiw: out of tle domestic fats policy outlined in last'month's "WORLD HOG
AMN PjRi PROSPECTS", it will be necessary to diminish the.production of oil-
cake from iri.corted oilseed, the statement declares. Farmers are urged to give
more attention to ensilage crops and otherwise prepare to provide winter
feed sua- lie from domestic products. It is recalled that in 1914 a heavy
slaughter of livestock was the result of the stoppage of feed barley supplies
from Russia.

In accordance with the above policy of self-sufficiency with respect
to animal ftts, the German import duty on lard was again raised, effective
May 16, rs stated in a cable frola Agricultural Attache' Steare at Berlin. The
increase in the duty was from 50 R.I.:. to 75 R.M. per kilogramn. In mid-
February ,T.en the duty was raised to 50 R.IM. per kilogram, that rate in
terms of U:-ited States currency, was equivalent to about $5.40 per 100 pounds.
Since that th-ic, however, German currency has appreciated in teriis of dollars,
and at the prcve.iling exchange rate tne new *i t, is equivalent to about
$9.40 per 100 pounds.

The somewhat seasonally easier tone in the German hog market brought
the April average price of heavy hogs at Berlin down to $7.25 per 100 pounds.
That fire was slightly 'under the avernaesof both' the preceding month and
a year a-,go. arhet receipts for March at 14 cities were the smallest for
that mont-. since 1925, but were seasonally larger than the Febraary figures.
For the current sac-son to March 31, receipts ran 16.6 percent behind the
corresponL'.. 1i. 1-32 levels. The March inspected slaughter also was sea-
sonally larer, .at below killings for any March since 1926. Bacon imports
in ;Mrch s-o-e'i the effects of restricted trading, totaling only about
one fourth those of a year earlier. To March 31, the current seasons bacon
innort,; :e-re 17.4 percent below those of last season, but still considerably
larg;r t:-an those of any: season since 1924-25. The Netherlands has been
supplying the bulk of the bacon imported into Germany.

Total. hog numbers in Bul-arir, Hungarj, R'tnania ai:d Yu&oslnavia. co3n-
prisin; the Danube Basin area, increased. from 8,629.,000 head early in
1930 to 10,141,.000 head in the corresponding .part of 1932, according to
figures submitted by Agricultural Att;cne' i G. :.ichael at Belgrade. In-
creases are rx-ticipated for 1933 alno in vi_.w of the hrcvvy 1932 corn crop
in the Basia cn' indicated larg-r runbern on feed in January 1933. The
1932 total, :ov.ever, represents a decline of 'about 7 percent from tie Lr.:::jers
reported for tr.L r1re-ws-,r areas now compriring the Danube Basin coLun ries.
The lo-w point in post-war numbers '.as reacnrd in 1924 when 6,1':,000 h'adl
were recorded. Tne preliminary figures ,nactin. up tne 1932 total art, .*.vi'.:l
as follows: Rjunania, 3,400,000; Yugoslavia, 3,260,000; lungary, 2,361,0'20
and Bul1aria, 1,100,000.

Lardi froin the Danube Basin competes with the American product to
some extent in Austria and Czecl.oslovakia. Lard as such is exported from
Hungary, Yugosl.vir arnd Bulqaria. A large proportion if the Inri is export-
ed also to t..e Vienna market in the form of live IrJd-t: ;e co S r. ro
Yugoslavia, Eunfcr;, and lriuania. As a 1-.\-l, about h&lf a million liv- ho;s
F are exported annually from the Basin, nf w.. ic considir"bly m:nnre tnmn ihalf
go to Austriv, with Czec'oslov-kia ti;-in;f- inmt of tne 're.aindrl r. Poland
i supplies most of the meat t:'.e .o ,-s sold on Austria nmarrkets.
