European sellers and buyers haggle,? ftYjSr individual animals. In Sputh America'~iiijtat.of; the dealing is done'righ!t*$n the estan«<xSj\w^re the Jivesto 1 ck ;L is A .raised;..But,.here in the,leading,; livestock'riation'of the^worldyfor 7$ yea^ central | markets have played a big part in thS j6p'_6f moving meat toward dinner tables of the United} States. ' ' When a carload of livestock rolls off the prairie; or but of the mountains, into one of the.65/or/ more great central markets^ the animals are "greeted" and "registered"- at the unloading dock, much as travelers are received and rej^fe- tered in hotels. From there they are sent ; tath.ei£ "rooms"—the pens assigned to the commission man to whom the owner has shipped his animals. There these hogs, cattle, calves and lambs i are. rested and given food and drink. „, > Just as hotels compete for guests, so these' central markets compete with each oth^-'fofc the business of accommodating the 88 niiUion head bf livestock which come in each year,., Tnpvfc, sands of livestock buyers and order buyers-bid i against each other and the sale is made to the highest bidder. With 26,000 meat'packers aha; other commercial slaughterers active in livestock tluyftig^fitjis easy to see that the American liVestpckVrqJarketing system is the most com- petitive'ih-jthe world. ,.', These .^livestock hotels" are a separate branch bf'th^-livi^tock-meai, industry. They are privately oytited. Swift f: Company does not own a ' single share of any stt<c 'cyards company.

Then I-give them an explanation of the difference •(between the price they get for livestock and the price we meat packers receive for the meat we sell. To me it is a source of continual surprise that the spread is not greater than it is. During my years of experience in the livestock- meat industry, here is what I have learned about spread. We at Swift & Company have been paying fanners and ranchers approximately 76f(, on the average, out of every dollar we receive from those to whom we sell, for all products we process and handle, including hides, glands, and all by-products. That leaves us 24ji to cover the cost of processing and marketing. ... put of the 24( comes the cost of buying livestock and other agricultural products. The cost of preparation and refrigeration. The cost of loading them into cars and trucks. The cost of transporting them'to our branch houses or to retailers. The cost pf branch house operation and of selling and delivering the products to the retail dealers. In addition, we have taxes to pay; plus insurance and all the other necessary costs of doing business. When all the>e expenses have been paid,; \ve make a profit;, which over a period of yejirs -haSiaveraged?a fractipn of a cent a pound on the 6"K billion pounds of products we handle annually.
