There are many reasons why they should bo. Direct marketing, particularly to interior packers; moves the marketplace from several hundred miles distant to the farmer's own dooryard where the trade for his hogs Is made. That is to say, he determines before lie ever loads his hogs whether he wants to sell at the price quoted that morning arid to whom he wants to sell. This advantage is lost when he ships to the distant market where the buyer has all Uie advantage. Jlnrketlng Different. "Marketing of hogs at the present time is quite different from what it was in the old days when it was a bis job to haul livestock even 10 miles with a team of horses. Today i. is a simple matter to deliver livestock 50, 60 or even 100 miles with trucking facilities. Naturally the producer saves shrink and delivery expense. This marketing of livestock direct is an economic proposition brought about by the advent cf the truck that to my mine will always be with us because it is economically sound. "Today with all the modern con veniences such aa good roads fo rucks to travel on, and the radio he farmer can take advantage of a 'ood market on the very day ther s a good market.
