Then there's time for serious talks and ^ood.furi. In'Pecember there's opportunity*.too, to review the results of the past year's work . to make plans, that can be carried out efficiently in the ,year. that lies ahead. -, - a =„ Proper planning uncovers new opportunities in any business. With experience, know-how, and plain "horse sense" to draw on, plan-making should not be difficult. .You think back with pleasure on your good crops ... on how well your ivestock or poultry programs turned out You remember little things that made them profitable, or caused a loss. With this in mind, you look ahead and decide on next year's crops and rotations. You think of ways to improve your livestock operations. You make provision i or the purchase of breeding stock, seed, machinery, fencing and equipment. You consider your problems from all angles. That's the way a sound plan is made. Then you set your course and stick to it. .What's true of the individual farm or ranch is true of any business, small or large. We at bwiit & Company well know that we, too, must plan our work and work our plan. Our business inter- ests are many and varied. Without a plan and good business records, we would be almost certain to run into serious losses because our pront margin is small. But by planning carefully, diversifying and working efficiently, we—like you— hope to increase our earnings in the future. Things are NOT always as COWAN .BUILDING SUPPLY A DOLLAR SAVED IS A DOLLAR EARNED This true old saying has been an important guide in the business philosophy of Swift & Company right from the beginning of our history. And it always will be, because that is the only way anyone can make money in the meat packing business. In no other business that I know of is there such a narrow margin of possible profit. In the purchase of livestock, for instance, our buyers compete with buyers representing 3,500 meat packing plants and 22,500 other commercial slaughterers. Then, we sell our products in competition with the same 26,000 slaughterers with whom we compete when purchasing the ' livestock. Because of this constant competitive pressure from both sides, our'profit margins are very narrow. « Thus, to make money we, have to save money. Yea—we, too, have to "plan our work and work our plan." That's why we are forever chegkuig pur operations to increase efficiency ;.. tq eliininaie waste ... to do our job better. That jab is to process and distribute more than six and one-half billion ppunds of meats and other products each year. Only on such a volvww 9? business can tiny savings per pound add up *o fee profit which , ' keeps us in business. ^ ^fr f./ ll j.v<' 1 0f *'"• - To oil ogr friends on America's farms and ranches, we at Swift & Company wish ^<** John Holmes, Fntldeal * •-,Which is the longer—the top;lij», of 'the top Igure, or the v^**-— -'" •» * — . »M**v Y*"- ' w ** % ^ ,*•*""'w T ^vyi HD*^~ * * • r ' • »t "* • ( .,/,. measure them and see! • • -'i Similarly, in the kveBtock-mM.fc|' , .. industry, conclusions baised!pn*ji' I v TAKE TIME TO SAVE TIME '*'•'• by L. S. Hardin, Purdue University There is a labor-saving or labor-wasting way to do every farm job. Because we use too many old, hard ways, we waste 15 to 25 percent of our time. Greater attention to how we do' our jobs can save time and WO Ways of doing livestock work easier, faster ^nd better are. especially needed. Most farmers still use abnost as much work to make 100 pounds of pork, beef or milk, as they did 25 years ago. Yet, thanks mostly to machinery, wo have reduced crop worK one-fourth to one-half during the last 25 years. Alert farmers are simplifying farm jobs, cutting chore time 15 to 50 percent. Five Indiana farmers, by carefully planning their work, are raising market hogs with one-quarter the average hours, of labor. A Minnesota farmer rearranged h>a barn, aaopjett correct milking practices, saved 300 hours of work and 138 miles of walking a year. By rearranging his watering :system, a poultry man saved 22 mOes of , walking a- season. Sftroe farmers are making bay v w 90 man-minutes per,ton, Others, using similar eqjup- ment but harder ways of working, spend twice the tune.
