In April 1953 a substantial majority of farmers in Iowa and northern Illinois said they favored prices supports on cattle, hogs and feed grains during periods of depression. Considering conditions as they were at that time, the Experiment Station survey showed 30 percent of the farmers favoring supports for hogs, 35 percent wanting supports for cattle and 44 percent favoring supports for feed grains. The survey was financed by a grant from the Chicago Union Stockyards.
