Both Ends
( Producer and Consumer )
The Middle
(The Packer)
The consumer wants to pay a low price for meat.
The farmer wants to get a high price for cattle.
The packer stands between these conflicting
demands, and finds it impossible to completely
satisfy both, 9
The packer has no control over the prices of live
stock or meat, and the most that can be expected
of him is that ht keep the difference between the
two as low as possible. He does this successfully
by converting animals into meat and distributing
the meat at a minimum of expense, and at a- profit
too small to be noticeable in the farmer's returns
for live stock or in the meat bill of the consumer.

The net profit was $1.29 per head,
one-fourth of a cent per pound of beef.
By what other method can the difference be
tween cattle prices and beef prices be made smaller,
and how can the conflicting demands of producer
and consumer be better satisfied?
