If the 1948 corn crop turns out O.K., there is a very good chance that Iowa farmers will enjoy wide feeding margins next fall. That is what happened after the short corn crops of 1925, 1934 and 1936. It paid to have livestock the next fall after those years. How can hog raisers who are short of feed take advantage of this? They can breed their sows for late farrowing; carry the pigs along on pasture during the summer; finish them out on the 1948 corn crop.
