So will many a farsighted rancher and farmer out of his actual experience. So will students and teachers of land management everywhere ... In that bright possibility of range and pasture improvement lies one principal hope for more food for a hungry world. Not only more food, but better food. For proper grassland management will improve- the fertility of the land, and the nutritive value of the foods coming off it. It will save the land, too, protecting the precious layer of topsoil from blowing away or washing off to sea. And it will increase the amount and value of hay for cash' crop or winter feeding. The way is wide open for you to improve your '• grass. Strong and willing allies stand ready to help you. For advice and active help in planning your own grass-management program, there's : your County Agent. . . For technical, practical help in putting your program into operation, call on the Soil Conservation Service technician who lives in your district. . . And for information on newest experimental developments, call, on your State Agricultural College or experiment station. The program of good marfagement for your grassland which you work out together will probably consist of some—or perhaps all—of the .following practices. If you're in the range country: (1) Livestock numbers balanced to the amount of grass you can produce. (2) A rotation schedule of seasonal grazing, (3) Water located conveniently. (4) Elimination of excessive brush. (5) Wider distribution of salt to prevent overgrazing near salt source. (6) Re-seeding of overused or abandoned range. (7)" Introduction of improved native grasses and adapted new grasses. (8) Irrigation. (9) Protection against wind and water erosion. // yours is farm pasture land: (1) Liming. (2) Fertilization. (3) Seeding with : pasture mixtures which stretch the grazing season at both ends. (4) Weed control by mowing or chemicals. (5) Rotation grazing. (6) Avoidance of over-grazing. (7) Irrigation. We of Swift & Company have the same deep, basic interest that you have in range and pas- •ture improvement. More and better grass is to 'our interest as it is to yours—and to the nation's, That's why we urge you to act, if you have not already done so, to increase the productiveness >of your grasslands.

OUR CITY COUSIN Cries Qur ($/ Cousin tp th-e hirtiJ "Please turn off that big electric fan!" Profit Comes from]SAVING! The story at the head of this page is about farmers and ranchers making the most of their grasslands. By good planning, managing well, and operating efficiently, they can grow more grass, produce more food for the world, and make more money, While writing that story, I was struck by a similarity in the Swift business. For it is careful planning and efficient operation that keep us in business, too. Like you with your grassland, we've got to make the most of what we have. We've got to practice efficiency. We, also, must cut costs, operate with economy. Not only the important economy of finding uses and markets for every possible by-product, but economy and efficiency all along the line, Maybe you saw Swift's recent financial report for 1947, It showed that we earned $22,334,977 after prp^ vision of $12,000,000 for high cost additions to fixed assets. This earning represented one ,cent out of our average dollar of sales. That one cent was earned in large part by the savings we made. The operating figures of our business prove that statement. They show where the savings came from. New methods of doing things which save time and cost. Modern equipment replacing old, worn equipment. Better ways discov^ ered fry Swift research to produce, use and handle Swift products, A small saving here . . . another there ... little economies pyraniiding into big economies. Until, added together, the sayings which we made last year in the actyal day-by-day operation of the Swift business amounted to a considerable part of our earnings. Careful planning, good management and efficient operation are "musts" in our business as in yours. ^'Little things" can often add up to the difference between a profit and a loss. — Save More Spring Pigs by C. M. Vestal, Purdue University .iSurveys > indicate that one out of every •three pjgs farrowed die^s before weaning age. These death losses are one of the biggest leaks in the hog business. They can be reduced during the cold spring months by the use of electric brooders in c - M.Watai individual farrowing houses or pens of a central house. A three-year study and observation of 105 Utters showed that an average of one and one^-half more pigs was saved per litter when electric brooders were used in individual farrowing houses; The death loss from chilling was 10 per cent in the unheated houses against 2.2 per cent in those equipped with heated brooders. These losses in the houses without heat increased when the weather became colder. Outdoor temperature, however, had little if any effect on death losses when the electric brpoders were used. \ ; • The electrically heated pig brooder, either homemade or a factpry-made type, proved to be the most practical method of supplying heat. The brooder pro- yides/a small; t^ie pen or house which can be heated economically. The simplest type of brpoder is a |L50-wat^ reflector flood lamp suspended over a protected area for the pigs in a corner of the pen or house. Installation' and use of electric pig brooders require the necessary careful handling of electricity. Details for the construction of a pig brooder usually may be obtained from county agents or Agricultural Experiment Stations. W# irfiigsf'jjrtriwf'.if, »„„,-„ « e u,,ui,a 4!

"Weigh 'em to Swift!" The pen gate --.Cfefe opens and cattle crowd into thp alley, headed for the scales. A cry rings out, "Weigh 'em to Swift!" . Another lot of livestock has been sold to Swift & Company. That deal is a miniature of the business rela-< tionship between livestock producers and meat packers. '•"'.• Wften this lot pf steers was "finished," the producer sent them to the stackyards, con' signed to a commissipn firm. In the "yards" livestock buyers came to look and make their competitive bi4s. Competition is always keen because 26,000 meat packers and other commercial slaughterers hi the United States are active in livestppk buying, Eaqh buyer knows that unless he bids "the going price" for the animals he wajjts, some competitor will get them. Also, he knows that # fo bi4s too hjgh his company w^JJ tak,e a loss, Thus competition and the Jaw of -supply and demand set the prices all along the line. This load of steprs went to $wift & Company because the Swift buyer peered more t' other buyers, Anjd the pricp hg paid, based on his estimate of wfcat the meat, hjj^, gtends and other byproducts would be worth to Swift & Company, SWIFT & COMPANY UNION STOCK YAROS CHICAGO 9, ILLINOIS NUTRITION IS OUR HUSi^iSS^ANB Y0UR5 Right teting 94d* life to your y«ir4«f«i/wJ >«<w* fc your tiff t .
