PROFIT ON CATTLE
ONLY $119 A HEAD
Meeker Testifieg Before Senate
Committee That Packeri Do
Not Keep Down Price.
STATISTICS ON INDUSTEY
Arthur Meeker, speaking on the
Borland resolution for an investiga
tion of the packing industry in this
country before a subcommittee in the
United States senate brought out the
fact that Armour & Co., make a profit
of just $1.19 per head on the cattle
"It is perfectly evident," said Mr.
Meeker, f'to any one connected with
this industry, who has heard the testi
mony given before your committee
that this agitation, or campaign, like
all its predecessors, is based not on
facts, its structure being built on sus
picions. "In the first place, Armour & Co. s
finanrinl atatemimt for last year.
shows gross profits, of $11,000,000, on
a net capital investment of $118,000,
000, a profit of only 26 cents per dollar
"Now, as a matter of fact, less than
one-half of our net profits were made
in the packing business proper in this
country, which includes the slaughter
ing of 9,320,925 animals; and about
one-seventh were made out of the cat
tle business; in other words, we
slaughtered during that period 1,435,
291 cattle and made a profit of $1,709,
811.52, or $1.19 per head. More than
one-half of our entire profits were
made in manufacturing businesses,
some entirely disconnected firms, and
others remotely connected with,
though in no way dependent upon, the
slaughtering business, and also in
manufacturing business operated in
foreign countries, where neither the
raw material nor the resultant finished
producta were sold in this country, so
that when one separates the results
into the profits made in the packing
industry and those that are not, the
packing industry shows a very poor
return on the capital invested.
Margin of Profit
"And I know of no large manu
facturing industry, of any name or
nature, that has ever been conducted
on such a margin of profit, since the
world began, and survived, and this
is the reason, and the only reason
that I know of, that new competitors
are not entering the field, because the
net results do not seem an adequate
return for the capital invested, the
chances taken, ana the services per
formed. "As to the cattle industry, the
statistics of the Department of Agri
culture, showing an increase of over
5,000,000 in the number and a large
increase in the value of cattle in this
country in the last three years, and
the great increase in the value of
lands through the west and middle
west shows the cattle business is
Bad Year for Feeders.
"The feeders of the country had a
hard time last year, and it is perfectly
well known to every one who is en
gaged in the industry that it was an
abnormal year in many respects, in
that the foot and mouth disease,
failure of the corn crop in some sec
tions, and the poor quality in others,
caused by too much moisture and
early frosts and high price of feed
stuffs and feeding cattle, all making
for the high cost of production, were
responsible for it in part The main
reason, however, was the depressed
condition in business resulting in low
consumer purchasing power and in
ability, on part of consumer, to pay
higher prices for beef.
There may be. roughly, perhaps,
a million people In this country en-
faged in the business of producing
ive stock, perhaps more, whose chief
interest, naturally, is to get as much
tor their cattle as they can. On the
other' hand, there are a hundred and
one million people in this country who
are not interested in what the farmers
get for their cattle. Their interest is
to see how cheap they can buy their
beefsteak and their purchasing power
determine the price that the retailer
pays us for cattle and countrary to the
popular Idea, the middle man oi
packer, has little voice in the matter.
"You have heard our friends say
that they thought they would get
more money for cattle if there was
more competition in buying; in other
words, more firms In the industry,
more people to buy cattle. This
would, of course, mean more competi
tion in buying, cause higher prices for
cattle, more competition in selling,
would cause beef to be sold cheaper.
This would do two things narrow
the slaughterers present margin
which is aa small as the business can
be conducted on and at the same time
increase the cost of doing business by
dividing it up into smaller units, with
the ultimate result that there would
be no margin of profit and probably
the business would be conducted at a
loss which means that the survivors
would be the people whose income
came partially from other business
tnan tne slaughtering ot beef. In
other words, if our volume of business
or that of any firm, waa decreased a
third, or 50 per cent, it would not be
within the limits of possibility to cut
down the expenses so as to make the
cost of doing business the same as
with the present volume.
"I want here to give you these
statistics that the average sold Drice
of beef through all of Armour & Co.'s
branch houses in the United States
for the calendar year of 1914 waa 12
centa a pound, and the average sold
price of beef through the same houses
in the year 1915 was 11)4 cents a
pound, and the purchase price of all
Sraded and kinds ot cattle by Armour
: Co., for the year1 1914 was $7.12,
while in the year 1915 it was $7.06, a
decrease of 6 cents per hundred
weight or less than 1-16 of 1 cent per
pound, showing, clearly that cattle did
not sell much.
lower and beef did sell much lower.
And I want to offer this chart as
made-up from our records, showing
in two colored lines the fluctuations
in Armour & Co, purchase price for
cattle, and the selling price of beef
in the United States for the last three
"Lest there be any confusion on
your minds as to how we do our busi
ness. I want to say that we do not
sell at retail, but to the retail butchers,
It haa been said here that the price at
retail doe no fluctuate with the price
of live cattle. That is a separate
biancn ot the trade and a subject on
which we are not posted and have no
control over; but I doubt very much
if the retail butchers of this country,
with the various problems they have
to contend with, make more than a
fair living out of their business.
"Perhaps a word or two would be
interesting as to how the beef business
"The receipts of cattle at the large
markets determine the aggregate pur

weather conditions, feeding conditions,
the natural season of maturity, and a
hundred and one other causes affect
the receipts of live stock from week
to week, and, therefore, the weekly
supply of dressed beef is uneven.
What Determine Price.
"It is impractical and impossible to
store live stock at market, and equally
impossible to keep refrigerated beef
on hand for more than a few days;
therefore, the receipts of cattle each
week determine the quantity of beef
that is shipped each week, and the
quantity of beef shipped largely de
termines the price at which it can be
sold. Of course, exceptional weather
conditions, varying receipts of othef
food products like eggs, pcfultry, fruit,
fish, vegetables in the various seasons
affect the quantity of beef that is
eaten. It is safe to say that 99 per
cent of the refrigerated beef that is
shipped by the large firms is unsold at
the time oi shipment. No fixed sell
ing price can be put on it, based on
its cost it has to go forward con
signed to hundreds of markets to be
sold for the best price it will bring, no
more or less, but it must be sold
promptly on arrival or within a few
days thereafter, while It is in fresh
"It is a fundamental fact In the beef
business that it must be sold while
it is fresh, and a price must be made
that will induce the retail dealer to
buy while it is fresh. Wi know by
experience that a little increase in the
price of beef has an immediate effect
in reducing the quantity that the re
tailer will purchase, and a decrease in
the price has an immediate effect in
increasing the consumption. The
beef market price is, therefore, the
highest price at which the beef can
be moved into consumption while it
"When the packer is face to face
with the condition of a sluggish trade
where he is obliged to make conces
sions in the selling price in order to
move the beef, which frequently hap
pens, he naturally tries to buy his
cattle at lower prices in line with the
new market conditions, has not a de
mand for as many cattle as usual,
which occasions what is termed in the
trade a 'glut' in the market and cattle
in order to be sold have to be sold at
a concession in price to stimulate the
"Glut" Not Favorable.
"The live stock people from their
testimony seem to be under the im
pression that a glut in the live stock
market is favorable to the packer,
while as a matter of fact it is always
preceded by a glut in the beef mar
ket, which occasions a heavy loss to
the packer and with continued heavy
receipts of live stock may mean sev
eral weeks of losses to the packer be
fore normal conditions reassert them
selves. As a matter of fact, rea
sonably stable prices would be most
satisfactory for the cattleshipper, the
slaughterer and the retailer were it
possible to secure them, but under the
present haphazard method of market
ing live stock, such a condition is im
"I assume it i well known to all of
you that the present price of live
stock are very remunerative to the
? reducers. Congressman Kent in
ormed me a fortnight ago that his
partner Mr. Burke had advised him
that the last cattle they sold showed
them a profit of $30 per head. I think
it would be just reasonable for the
packers to ask congress to make an
investigation of Mr. Burke and a
thousand of other shippers who are
making such a good profit on their
cattle this year as it is for Congress
man Borland to want the packers in
vestigated for the unfavorable condi
tions of last year. I would like to
point out to Congressman Borland
that the same five firms buying cattle
this year at these very remunerative
firices to the producer, are the same
ive firms he complained of last year,
and the reason for the high prices to
day are the same as the reason for the
low prices of a year ago, namely "con
ditiona." In a nutshell, owing to the
industrial conditions last year it was
not possible to market as many cattle
as were marketed at any higher prices,
while this year, owing to improved in
dustrial conditions, more cattle are
being marketed at much higher

Armour plant have his way. .
There have been busy times this
week at Armour's. A gang of men
haa been employed grading and spad

seventh and R streets. No expense
has been spared to make the park
one of the most modern in the city.
A circular race track is being built
within the park, to be used by track
runners. It is the intention of Mr.
Howe to have an athletic team for
every branch of sport, if possible.
Foot ball, track, base ball and basket
ball are the four branches that prob
ably will be most popular.
Assistant Superintendent John
Boeckhoff of the plant probably will
be in charge of the whole arrange

Although I am only
24 year old, I have
suffered lor the past
eight year. I hated
the doctor, for a
doctor told me to
give up the stage
where I was playing
with my husband.
I had bearing down pains, my health
failed me. ana I could not work on tha
stage, and wasn't able to tend my baby
or even get around myself. I was
always downhearted and discontented
with the world, and only lived for the
sake of my little girl. The doctor said
to move to some quiet little town away
from the noisy dty, and I might be able
to live and feel well, so I went to Day
ville in November. At that time I was
so sick I could not walk around, and my
husband kept house end I stayed in bed.
One day in January I read your adver
tisement in a newspaper, and I sent for
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound, and started taking it Within
two weeks time I was a different wo
man, could get around, and felt so good
that it was a pleasure to do my house
work. I felt contented and happy, and
now am the picture of health, and am
tempted to return to the stage. We
appreciate my health a the most pre
dcus thing on earth." Mrs. H. L.
