Live Stock Industry
There has never been a company organized in the Middle West that has met with such favorable support
of farmers, stockmen and bankers as that of the Skinner Packing Company. The reason for this is very simple.
Everyone realizes that the packing industry is the basis of land Values. The price of grain raised on the farms,
of this territory depends on the growth of the Omaha market, so upon the market depends the price of. farm
lands, and as our cities are dependent upon the success o f the farmers of this territory, we are dependent upon the
Omaha market for the success of any business in ihis great Missouri Valley territory.
This new plant of the Skinner Packing Company, which in itself is a large proposition, nevertheless is
built with the sole idea of doubling the plant at the lowest minimum expense, and it is the prediction of the ex
perienced packing house men who are now associated with the company that the plant will have to be doubled'
ithin twenty-four months from the date we open.
This plant built at Omaha, on account of this bein g a supply market and the great need of additional pack
ing facilities here at this market, is worth much more to the company than a plant built at any other market in the
world; for the reason that this is a supply market. ""
There are large successful independent packing p lants at practically every other market of any conse
quence in the United States. There has heretofore been no real large independent packing'plant on this market,
which means that the Skinner Packing Company represents a real epoch to those who are interested in developing
and building the market here at Omaha.
On account of the fact that the Skinner Company . has a plant that is a credit to any packing concern, a
business reputation and sufficient capital to finance the company, there has been attracted to the company men
of life-long experience in the packing business. v .
.. The ones that the company can use at this time are now in their employ, and we have under contract prac
tically our complete organization for heads of departments, and they will take up their duties as soon as the
plant is actually open for operation. '
We could not attract these men to us unless there was a spirit to make good and an accurate knowledge
that we are equipped to do an enormous and prof itable business. ..: x "
The organization, from the general manager down, is composed of thoroughly experienced and practical
packing house men.

Act Now and Secure an, Interest in This Great Plant
The Company's securities have been sold direct by the officers and directors of the Company at the least possible
expense. The aim of the management is to build up a company that is successful, and the expenditure of every dollar has
been guarded with only one thought in mind and that to f urther-the interests of the company.
The capital of the company is $10,000,000, and most of this capital has been placed with far-seeing, conservative
investors of this Missouri Valley territory. ' x -
There is only a limited amount left, and as a going business, with our produce department, which is established, and
with a completed plant and ample capital for operating same, the securities of the Skinner Packing Company1 are today,
from an investor's standpoint, well worth a premium of $50 per share over the par value at which the securities were sold
when this great company was in the organization stage, and the fact that you can today purchase the, participating stock
of this company as low as $125 per share represents a real opportunity. ' I .
Investors should bear in mind that the Skinner Packing Company plant is built to supply a real demand for meat
products under the Skinner trade-mark, and, as has been stated elsewhere, we are continuously receiving inquiries from
wholesalerocers from every state in the Union for quotations on our packing house products. Provision dealers from every
large city of the East are calling for our line of fresh meats and provisions. Those who are familiar with the merchandising
end of the business know that the distribution of the products of this great plant is assured. .
The operating officers of this plant are men who have spent their lives in the packing house business and have the
highest standing in packing house circles. w ,,,,,,
The President and Vice President of the company are the same men that have established the wonderfully successful
business of the Skinner Manufacturing Company and the Skinner Baking Company. These companies have always paid lib
eral dividends and we wish to state that the opportunity for big business and profits that faces the Skinner Packing Com
pany is logical and practical and the outlook for the great success is at least 50 per cent better than when the company was
, first organized. ... , - , v . ' ,
Realize that this is an 8 per cent guaranteed, preferred, fully participating stock, and that never again and under no
conditions whatsoever will there ever be a fully participating stock issued in the Skinner Packing Company. This is ground
floor stock and participates in the full and entire profits of the company. In case additional capital is ever needed, we can use
6 or 7 per cent money, and that is also what will put the value behind this fully participating stock, by using this cheaper
y It is not only the honest opinion of the management, but the opinion of the most experienced packing house men,
that this fully participating stock will Je worth several hundred dollars per share within a few years. We can show you
what has been done in the packing business, and it is no idle dream when we state that this stock will increase in value to
$500 per share in a reasonable length of time.
