Note: This may be an unpublished photo from the National Farming Organization protest. A caption published under a similar photo published Wednesday, Feb. 26, 1964, on page 3 in The Morning Democrat read:
"National Farming Organization members protesting hog prices at the Oscar Mayer plant in Davenport Tuesday, Feb. 25, 1964, tried to block the loading area with small trucks of their own, each containing two hogs. The farmers said they wanted a price of $22.75 a hundred weight for the hogs, instead of the $14.50 or so which has been paid recently. But hogs continued to flow into the plant and production was maintained. Here are seen two trucks blocking the plant gates."
