1951 Farm Outlook for North Carolina in Tobacco, Cotton, Hogs and Poultry

Record #:
With employment rates and incomes on the rise, it is expected that North Carolina will provide more un-manufactured tobacco for cigarettes than in previous years. Along with export demands for tobacco to foreign countries, there is a foreign and domestic demand for cotton continues to be increase while supplies remain steady if not slightly smaller than previous years. Although there has been an increase in hatcheries for November, boiler prices have led to a decrease in demand for baby chicks. And North Carolina's hog crop is estimated to increase 4% over last year, a 14% increase above the 10 year average.
