The tction was a surprise luse the USDA report in mber, which covered rates, had pointed to an ease of 2 percent or e. However, the June wt, which covered all as, had shown that lets intended to farrow rcent fewer sows during six months June- ember than one year ire. At this stage of the cycle, actual farrowings lily exceed early in- ions by 2 or 3 percentage ts le number of market weighing over 180 Iris was listed at ,000, 12 percent less a year earlier. Most of hogs will be marketed le last of January. weighing 120 to 180 were estimated at down 2 percent. weighing 60 to 120 Ads were listed at i9,000, down 3 percent. SOW FARROWING IN- TENTIONS Hog producers reported intentions to farrow 6,970,000 sows from December 1 through May. This number would be only 6 percent more than were farrowed a year ago. The actual increase probably will be larger, perhaps 7 or 8 percent. Even so, the consequent increase in market supplies during the last half of 1973 apparently will not be excessive. Many have asked why farmers have been so slow to increase hog production. We believe that the prin- cipal reason is that most hog producers operate at full capacity whenever possible. Production increases materially only after a substantial number of the producers construct or acquire new buildings and other facilities. Planning and construction usually requires several months, sometimes more than a year. In recent years most of the major decreases in hog production were the result of some farmers quitting the hog business. Most of those who quit do so after several months of unprofitable prices. It now appears that the next such period will begin in 1974. If this proves to be true, the four-year cyclical pattern of hog production and prices, which has prevailed for twenty years, will be on schedule.
