M.l|i To Our Customers: A Statement of Price Policy on PURINA CHOWS It is true that our prices on Purin;i Chows have increased since the end of Ol'A ceilings on July 1 ... BUT... . . . These new higher prices are due ENTIRELY to the increase in the feed ingredients. All ingredients have risen sharply . . . some as much as $:i7.. r )0 a ton. . . . This increase in the price of I'nrina Chows is not as large as lilt* increase in ingredient costs. New prices reflect only a part of oul-of- pocket increase lo Purina. . . . The new prices on Purina Chows do not include a single cent ]!j?r !).'ig or ton more profit for Purina. The 1 profit margins on Purina Chows have never been up to the full amount allowed under OPA anil will not be raised now to margins previously permit ted. WE ARE PROUD TO FOLLOW PURINA'S POLICY .As authorized Purina dealers we arc pledging ourselves to follow the manufacturer's lead. \Ve know that our first resnon.sibiliiy is to our customers—we want to keep feed prices down as much as possible We are not increasing our margins—we will not be short-sighted and take advantage of the present situation at your expense.
