The Livestock
Producer Want
-The highest prices hi cat
tle will bring.
-An assured market 12
months in a year.
-Selling outlet that cover
the entire world.
The Meat Consumer
Meat at the lowest price
it can be bought.
A stabilized, supply, winter
and summer alike.
Distribution that brings the
meat fresh, sweet and
in prime condition.
These things Armour and Company are able to
provide, because the Armour organization lias kept
pace with international needs
When Armour began turning
waste parts into saleable by
products, the farmer profited
because it became possible to
pay him on a basis for the
uhole animal. Instead of for
just the meat, hide and tallow.
And as by-products provide for
a large part of the production
cost, the consumer pays less for
tiis meat.
When Armour and Company
started building refrigerator
cars on a large scale, fresh beef,
pork and mutton became at
once available at all seasons
and in all consuming centers.
And with Armour branch
bouses to hold enough to make
them independent of railroad
uncertainties, and to distribute
according to retailers require
ments, stock-growers have the
encouragement of sure markets
and c6nsumers are assured a
steady always-dependable sup
ply. There is nothing to prevent
any packing concerns from
building and operating their
own refrigerator cars. Nor are
they barred from conducting
their own branch distributing
- The big point is that Armour
and Company, realizing that a
national business could not be
conducted except on a national
scale, hate built these cars and
provided necessary marketing
facilities. The system is the
outgrowth of necessity, and to
render the service which is ex
pected of it, mu6t operate as
a whole. It cannot be efficient
piece-meal, or under scattered
management. The very nature
of the business is against that.
Time, and the utmost in co
ordination and efficiency, are
first essentials in the successful
handling of food products.
There can be only one way to
realize the greatest efficiency
under such circumstances, and
that is to do it as Armour and
Company are doing It with
preparation and shipping fa
cilities under one comprehen
sive management.
