a lower ra te and more liberal term».
It la not good buaineaa to pay a

In other words, most of the live
stock is one or two thousand miles
distant from most of the people who
need it in the form of food.
Fifty years ago, when live stock was
raised close to every consuming cen­
ter, the country butcher could handle
the job after a fashiori.
But the job got too big.
Now millions of animals have to be
moved hundreds of miles to millions of
people. Somewhere on the way they
have to be turned into meat.

The packers solved the problem.
They set up plants where the “live
haul” and the “meat haul” were in
the right balance.
They built up
distributing system s—refrigerator cars,
refrigerating plants, branch houses.
They saved time, money and meat
everywhere. The stockraiser bene­
fited in better markets and higher
prices; the consumer, in better meat
and lower prices.
As the country grew, the packers
had to grow, or break down. Because
of its present size and efficiency.
