It aver' of a peijt a o^ o» ' How We EARN Our In addition to providing a market for livestock, and many other agricultural prodycts, Swift performs many essential services for producers and consumers. Most people,can't go to farms to buy their meat—• neither can retail dealers. Swift brings the meat to them. We have been doing this big', necessary job for 62 years, efficiently and.economically. . - " .Here are the services Swift & Company performs to earn its small profit: 1) We buy livestock and many other products that farmers and ranchers rajse; then process and distribute them. 2) We process,'brand, and perform all tho maiiy necessary operations to prepare our products for market and consumption, 3) We utilize-all'by-products. Every part that can« be used is processed and sold iri various forms. The income from this source increases thp price of livestock to producers, decreases the cost of meat to consumers, 4) Otir research finds new uses and new markets for farmers' and ranchers* products. 5) Our Martha Logan experimental kitchens test foods under home conditions, BO that Swift prod* '-ucts may give consumers the greatest possible satisfaction and value per dollar. ' v i 6) We pay transportation cljarges^on our finished products, delivering them to dealers in all parts of the United States. This makes a broad, nationwide market instead of a limited local market for the products of livestock producers. 7) 'We provide employment and a livelihood—good wages, good working conditions and security --for 73,000 people who work for Swift & Company, Our earnings for all this were one cent on each dollar of sales. !
