I i Page Six FlirliimLivestock” l Herds Increase i Thruout Statel Present favorable meat prices :‘n'l erosion control grass plant-l ings in the Eastern Washingtonr Wheat area are resulting in an increase in the number of farmi liVestOCk herds in this state. tockmen and prospective stock< men are being cautioned, however, by R. M. Turner, extension econ-: 'omist of the State college of VVash-i ington. against expansion on any1 but a sound, well-planned farm' management basis. Turner points. out that during the World war I "he ranges of the West suffered “mm the over-stocked condition. iany livestock enterprises were,- ‘wept into bankruptcy followingl he close of the war and the dras—’ ic decline in prices. Cattlemen are facing at least no good price years. says the; conomist. Cattle numbers. how-l ver. are increasing steadily thru- iut the nation. 'When the numbers: each a peak three or four years: 'rom now. defense spending may. we greatly reduced. Demand may: \e much less. Stockmen are ad-l iscd by Turner to consider the. ipportunity to market a larger! .1 lumber of their cows and heifers, luring this next two year period: When prices drop, it usually takes' fix to seven years to reduce cat-2 tie numbers sufficiently for the‘ price of cows and beef to increasei Farmers are also urged to con-l sider carefully all aspects of the! present hog situation in planning; their enterprises Ten per centl fewer hogs are being marketed; during this coming year. Turneri reports. Indications point to a fur— ther reduction in the 1941 pig. crop. Relatively high hog pricesf in 1942, as a result of this situa—, tion. may stimulate a large in-l crease in numbers of pigs raised i1! >1942 and perhaps in 1943. Here' again Turner calls attention to the fact that when this increase is ready for market in 1943 and' 1944, consumer demand may not‘ be as strong as in either 1941 or: 1942. In view of this situation. farm- ers who can hold back sows from' market and breed for more fall pigs this year will be making a profitable adjustment. the econo- mist feels. Turner emphasized that all farmers should attempt to have all livestock products available for market time during the next two years to avoid being caught in 3 mar- ket decline. Fewer Turkeys 1 Expected To Be l Raised for 1941; V‘lashington turkey producers plan on raising about 5 per cent less turkeys in 1941 than in 1940.‘ according to early intentions re- ported to ,H. C. R. Stewart, Sen-I ior Agricultural Statistician, Ag—| ricultural Marketing Service, Se- attle, Washington. In 1940. Wash- ington produced 511,000 turkeys, and growers’ early reports this| year would indicate a 1941 crop of about 485,000 birds. For two successive years growers have re- ported an increase in home hatch- ed poults, and this year intentions indicate more poults will be home hatched than purchased from hatcheries. Growers report only a slight decrease in the number of turkey hens on hand January 1, 1.941, from the number they held a year ago. Reduction in 1941 Turkey producers intend to hatch and buy about 3 per cent fewer poults this year than last, according to February 1 reports from about 6,000 growers who had about 3,000,000 poults last year. Producers plan to hatch the same number of poults last year toward an increased proportion of home hatched poults. The number of turkeys on hand February 1 for breeding was 14 per cent less than last year, and this large re: duction in breeders suggests a possible shortage of hatching. eggs to produce the intended supvl inecessarily show the number of , turkeys that will actually be rais- {ed this year compared with last. 'Intervening between intentions land performance are the modifi- -cations that may be made later because of this report and of changes in other factors. If re- ported intentions were to be fully realized and no exceptional losses suffered. such as occurred during the past two years, the resulting supply of turkeys for market would be about the same as in 1940. With the present wide distri- bution of the industry, however, exceptional losses in some areas are more likely to be the rule than otherwise. Therefore, the actual number of turkeys raised is apt to be somewhat less than this re- port indicates. Ten Idwalis Gather At Hack Home Saturday ‘ Ten old neighbors of Livermore, i Iowa. now transplanted farther “west, sat down around the hospi— table table of Mr. and Mrs. L. D.
