A hearing in Staunton General District Court was set for July 1. calves available for placements would be below a year ago. With less cattle available for placement, optimism should develop in cattle feeding. The three to five per cent reduction in beef supplies for 1977 spells somewhat higher average retail prices for consumers.

Pork supplies are up from a year ago but are not enough to compensate for decreased beef supplies and increased consumer income. March slaughter totaled 3.6 million head, down five per cent from a year earlier. Slaughter for the first three months of 1977 totaled 10.5 million head, a decrease of four per cent from January-March 1976.

(EDITOR'S NOTE This is the way Virginia Farm prices looked to the Department of Agriculture and Commerce on Friday. The department offers it to farmers with the warning that no one can predict prices and be right all the time.) HOGS Hog prices have shown some strength during recent weeks. The small increase in the December 1976-May 1977 expected farrowings represents a sharp curtailment of this expansion phase of the hog cycle. Prices were likely at their yearly low during early spring. Prices are expected to average in the upper $30 range during the second quarter.

Hog production continued above a year ago during early 1977. Poor feed conversion last winter had considerable effect on the timing of marketings and slaughter. Delays in marketings are likely to cause a seasonally larger slaughter this spring pushing second quarter output up about a fifth from a year ago. However, production is expected to drop below a year ago by the last quarter of 1977. Virginia farmers received $72.5 million for hogs marketed in 1976, 8 per cent above 1975.

The increase was due to 12 per cent greater marketings. The next release of hog data for Virginia and the Nation will be on June 23. At this time, a mid-year inventory, farrowings for December 1976-May 1977, expected far-rowings for June-November 1977, and spring crop will be estimated. Based on this data, current and future marketings can be estimated. This data can also be used in estimating future prices.

Hog prices last Thursday in Peoria were: $44-45; Indianapolis, St. Louis, Richmond, $42.50, and Southeast Virginia, CATTLE A combination of several factors point to limited strength in the fed cattle market. Supporting the strength is no increase in the expected total beef supply this spring over the second quarter of 1976, and the growth of consumer incomes. Holding cattle prices down are increased competition from larger pork and poultry supplies. Another limiting aspect is the narrow farm-to-carcass marketing spread.

The fed cattle outlook is for a two to three per cent more fed cattle moving to market this spring than a year ago, but a year-to-year reduction in fed marketings this summer. January through March marketings were up two per cent, and intended April-June marketings are up one per cent. Barring dry weather, the year-to-year reduction in non-fed slaughter will continue this spring. Cow slaughter Will be down due to renewed pasturing. Summer cattle on feed marketings are expected to be down 10 per cent from last summer.

This is based on the number of April 1 steers on feed weighing 500-700 pounds, and heifers weighing 500-700 pounds. These weight groups give a good indication of the July-September feed cattle marketings. The Jan. 1 inventory of yearling cattle (excluding replacement heifers) was two per cent larger this year. With an improving market outlook, feedlots can absorb most of these cattle.

The inventory of calves on Jan. 1 was off six per cent and calf slaughter during January-March was up above five per cent. The combined yearlings and WOODROW M. WISEMAN Woodrow Marshall Wiseman, 62, of 1301 Maple St. died 10:40 a.m.

Sunday (May 29, 1977) in King's Daughters' Hospital where he had been a patient since Saturday evening. He was born July 8, 1914 in Augusta County, son of John W. and Ada (Stogdale) Wiseman. A veteran of World War II, he served four years in the Air Force. He was a foreman for Columbia Gas Co.
