Not quite U tilization of livestock by-products is important to all farmers and ranchers. Of the total dollars received by Swift & Company for lambs, 15% to 25% comes from by-products. Cattle by-products amount to 10 r / v to 20%. With hogs'it is 2% to 5%. When bidding on live animals, Swift & Company s buyers estimate the yield and grade of edible meat. In their estimate they figure, too, the value of all by-products, including hades and wool.' Livestock by-product§,,ha,ve. greatly increased the value'of your nieat; arihnals. Since "earliest, times, man has used hides and-Wool to make clothing. But only in_the past half-century has research-found the present great variety of uaes for by-products. Fats, and lanolin from wool, are the bavse of many cosmetics, healing creams, and beauty aids. Photographic film is coated with a gelatin compound. Other uses of gelatin and glues are almost endless. Animal fats are the main raw material of toilet soaps. * Life has been lengthened for people with diabetes, anemia and other diseases. They are helped by drugs such as insulin, liver extract, pepsin, adrenalin. These are all made from the glands of livestock. But for the painstaking care of meat packers, these glands would go to waste. This happened during the wartime "black ma'rket" in meats, and the supply of insulin ran low. ; With the growth of meat-packing plants, the war on wasto began in earnest. Science found new ways to use by-products of your animals. Bristles make brushes. Bones make knife handles. Hair makes upholstery padding. Bones, blood and scraps go into animal and poultry feeds. Yes, we finH use for every valuable pan. of cattle, hogs, and lambs. Each new use. for by-products adds value to livestock . . . and directly benefits producers.

Gage Rate of Planting Corn by the Yield Expected by George H. Dungan Univenity of Illinois Proper balance between the number of plants per acre and the ability of n - vour ' a11 ^ to produce, is needed for . D U ,,g an max j mum corn yie i dt Qn the average, corn yields are highest when the ears weigh approximately }.:> pound each, Use of the average size ear, as a good measure of whether or not the number of plants is great enough for maximum yield, is a result of many field trials These tests have been made at the Illinois Agricultural Experiment Station and other Corn Belt stations. On this same basis, if your average ear last fall weighed over J{> pound, you probably did not get maximum yield. With more plants in your fields, producing more and smaller ears, your cribs might have been fuller. To put these results to work, you should know that 7,000 half-pound ears per acre are needed for a 50-bushel yield* Seventy-five bushels require 10,500 such ears; one hundred busbels, 14,000 ears; and one hundred twenty-five bushels, 17,500 half, pound ears. At planting time, yield, of you* land should be estimated. Keep in mind thai not every kernel will produce a plant. Expect 90 plants from each 100 kernels, under favorable conditions. If you estimate your lancj cai} produce 50 bushels per acre you should erwj tUe season with 7,000 plants. JThis calls for panting two kernels per hill in rows 40 inches apart each way. With thwsame spacing, if one estimates yield at 75 bushels, he should plant three kernejs per hill; 100 bushels, tour kernels; and 125 bushels, five kernels. A Steer is NOT all Beef Let's take a look at this steer. It weighs 1,000 Ibs. It's not all steak. In fact, only a little more than half is salable beef. Hanging in Swift's cooling room, our steer has become two sides of beef. Together they weigh 543 Ibs. What happened to the rest? Modern meat packers save every- ^^-~ thing of value from the steer—heart, tongue, ^ r -\ _^> jj ver) sweetbreads and other_ fancy meats. Hides for leather; bones, blood and scraps for , animal feeds, Glands WASTE! for medicines. All told, 161 Ibs, of the steer is saved in by-products.. •— - But 296 Ibs. is shrinkage and material of no value. Only the meat and by-products can be sold,. What happens to the money the meat pack', er receives? It is used to buy livestock and other ra\jf materials. It meets the expenses of slaughtering, dressing, refrigerating, trans. . porting and selling. It pays rent, insurance', taxes—all the costs ofdoing business. • The amount remaining after all of these expenses are paid is the meat packer's profit. Over 9 period of years, Swift & Company's profit; has averaged a fraction of a pent ft pound on tbj products we sell, That's the ex- (MRf^ planation of the ^SW» ''spread" between livestock prices and wholesale meat prices. We All Want the Top Dollar You, as a producer of livestock, want to get the best price for your animals—"the top dollar." As.! a salesman for Swift & Company, selling the .products which result from these animals, I, too, want to get ttye top dollar. The meat packer's buyer has to judge the grade ot the animals and,estimate how they will yield. He then makes his bids in competition With buyers for many meat packers and other commercial slaughterers, lo get the animals, he has to offer going prices. Otherwise he just won't, get them; somebody else wdl. And that "going price' 7 which he must pay depends on the number of animalsvon the market and the demand for them, ». After Swift & Company has made the animals which it has purchased into meat and by-products we must sell them, again in stiff competition. If we dont offer meat at the going price, retail meat dealers will buy from somebody else who does. I/us competition in both buying and selling is so keen tnat we have to operate on a margin of profit which averages but a fraction of a cent per pound of product handled, . In our business, as in yours, it takes hard work and good management to come out with money ahead on a year's operation, Our efficiency in selling meat and by-products results in important economies and savings.
