"Meats in Storage"
Every working day of the year
75,000,000 pounds of meat are required
to supply home and export needs-and
only 10 per cent of this is exported.
These facts must be kept in mind
when considering the U. S. Bureau of
Markets report that on June 1, 1919,
there were 1,348,000,000 pounds of
meats in cold storage. If the meat in
storage was placed on the market it
would only be 20 days' supply.
This meat is not artificially withheld
from trade channels to maintain or
Meats in storage consist of
65 -per cent (approximate) hams, bacon, etc.,
in process of curing. It takes 30 to 90
days in pickle or salt to complete the
10 per cent is frozen pork that is to be cured
. later in the year.
6 per cent is lard. This is only four-fifths
of a pound per capita, and much of it will
have to go to supply European needs.
19 per cent is frozen beef and Iamb, part of
which is owned by the Government and
was intended chiefly for over-seas ship
ment. If this were all diverted to domes
tic trade channels, it would be only
Vz lbs. per capita a 3 days supply.
From this it will be seen that "meats
in storage" represent merely un
finished goods in process of curing and
the working supply necessary to assure
.the consumer a steady flow of finished
