Omaha is the world's second largest live stock market; $192,000,000 of meat products were
packed here last year, which represents but 60 of the live stock shipped to this market
There is a great opening for a packing plant at Omaha operated under the right management
and conducted along business lines. The operation by the Skinner Packing Company of Omaha'
Daylight Snow White Independent Packing Plant, will retard the trans-shipment of live stock at
this point, which will mean a great economic saving and a better market for shippers and
The SKINNER PACKING COMPANY will market its Specialty food products through the
present nationally organized sales forces of the Skinner Manufacturing Company.
