Prospects for agricultural recovery, III. Estimating advantages of the corn-hog plan to the individual farm
Bulletin: Volume 27, Issue 312
This is one of a series of bulletins dealing with agricultural recovery and considers specifically the corn-hog plan of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration. The need for such a plan was discussed in Circular 148 of the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station, in which it was said that, "Until our foreign trade is reestablished, that is, until imports are increased, exports must be reduced. Therefore, temporarily at least, some plan to facilitate the orderly retreat of our cotton, wheat, hog and tobacco producers is not only desirable but in all probability essential.”
The present plan and its advantages are being discussed currently by the Extension Service and in literature distributed by the Agricultural Adjustment Administration. It is believed that the present plan is the most practical one yet devised for handling the emergency aspects of the corn-hog production problem.
