I wonder whether the minister has taken definite action towards getting production of hogs in each month of the year. We read a great deal about the difficulty which confronts us in this matter. In my area that difficulty is probably accentuated; I believe it exists there to a greater degree than in other parts of Canada. I am sure that if some concerted effort could be made by the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa in conjunction with the provincial departments, propaganda could be carried on among farmers to show them the value of producing hogs ready for market in each of the various months, instead of producing all their hogs in two or three seasons of the year and flooding the market. Would the minister mind telling us what his plans are with respect to this matter?
