I like farming. I was raised on the soil. So were my folks. "I ought to be able to sell my stuff as soon as it's ready. Well—I'm doing that now. I take my butterfat, eggs and poultry to the nearest Swift & Company produce plant. "And I ought to have ready cash just as soon as I make delivery. I get that toe. Swift & Company pays me for all they take, as they take it, at the full market price. "I ought to patronize my own community, and deal with other people who do. Yes— that's true. Well, Swift & Com'pany has 55,000 employes in over 500 towns and they all work for the company in their own home towns and spend their money there too. They pack and distribute the Swift brands right where they live. Many of them are our own townsfolk, helping this town to grow, helping to support our schools, stores and banks. "It seems to me that I'm getting a good, square deal now. And it gives me a real feeling of security to know that I'm part of an organization of 55,000 employes and 48,000 shareholders; that it is able to make a reasonable return on their investment and operate successfully on an average profit from all sources of only a small fraction of a cent per pound." «A Producer" department.
