Livestock Marketing Practices in Iowa

This is the second of two articles on a survey of cattle and hog marketing practices of Iowa livestock farmers conducted in the spring of 1952 by the Statistical Laboratory of Iowa State College in cooperation with the Iowa Crop and Livestock Reporting Service and the Agricultural Estimates Division, Agricultural Marketing Service. Part of the study was intended to evaluate the use of a new mail survey, initiated in Iowa, on farmers' marketing intentions. The earlier paper' gave results on the use made by farm operators of the monthly releases. This paper examines the sources of marketing information available to the same livestock farmers, and looks into some aspects of farm operators' habits and practices in marketing selected lots of livestock.
