Too can say that about the departments of Swift Company as well as about the business of farming. We diversify ocr operations, just as some farmers diversify theirs, to make an over all profit more likely--even though some products may not be profitable in any one year. So, over a period of years, there has never been a year when some departments did not make money and some lose. For example, the less fa-vorablc earnings of our fresh meat departments during 1943 were offset by im- .peered earnings in the non-meat departments. Dfterttfttation and Research Planning and research are nedfessary in farming and in our business if we are to get the most out of diversification. Farm planning must include: 1. As large a proportion of profitable crops as possible, 2. Protection' of soU fertility, 'and 3. Sufficient volume of work to allow efficient use of labor, power and machinery. Our planning is similar -- just substitute t few terms such as products for crops and you have it. ' St«eagriculturalcolIcgesandthcU.S. Department of Agriculture conduct experiments and furnish information to farmers and livestock producers. Swift Company depends upon research to develop new products and methods. Thus research makes practical diversification possible. Research and diversification provide more and better outlets for the producer's livestock, and improve living conditions for consumers.
