THE .BEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, MAY 25, 19181
STOCK YARDS IN
SOUTH OMAHA JO
BE MADE LARGER
Extensive Alterations Are
Planned to Increase Facili
ties; Additional Pens In
cluded. Alterations so extensive in their
nature that they are only limited to
the materials and labor available be
tween now and June IS are being
made to enlarge the facilities of the
stock yards of South Omaha.
As soon as they are completed
there will be a readjustment of the
yardage facilities and the traders' di
vision, long located on the east end,
will be moved over to the west end,
. taking the pens now held in the
blocks by the commission men.
Cement flooring is being laid on
the tract at the west end for the ad
ditional pens being built for the ac
commodation of the traders.
Everett Buckingham, vice president
and general manager of the Union
Stock Yards company, in announcing
the change Friday, said:
"The change is not intended for
the special benefit of either the trad
ers' division or the commission men,
but primarily for the accommodation
of the shipper, who will have the ad
vantage of the shorter distance from
the cars to the commission -men's
pens where the cattle are sold." '
"Under the old arrangement the
shipper was at a disadvantage in hav
ing to move the cattle from the un
loading pens at the east end of the
yards through the length of the yards
to the west end. The situation will
now be eliminated by the traders'
division and the commission men ex
changing places. Naturally, the
traders do not favor the idea of giv
ing up the pens they have used for so
long, but the changes are intended for
the general benefit of the trade by
helping the shipper out."
