MANAGER'S REPORT SHOWS
MCBRYDE TO BE PROMISING
Manager Alexander's report to the stockholders of McBryde Sugar
Company last week showed that the yield was 14.600 tons, the average
per acre being 5.46. The estimate for 1914 is 15,000 tons. The report
shows that the plantation actually lost money on its sugar, the net pro
ceeds being 99 cents per ton less than the cost. Other revenues, how
ever, such as rents, discounts, dividends from other corporations, etc ,
placed the profits of the bulk business on the right side. Weather con
ditions in 1913 had been fairly favorable, and the growing crops were
in good condition.
It cost McBryde last year $59.20 per ton to manufacture sugar
Marketing expenses were $9.17 per ton, and the gross receipts for the
crop averaged $67.38 per ton, thus showing a loss of 99 cents per ton.
It is quite evident that under same conditions of production, under a
year of normal prices, the profits would have been satisfactory on such
The cost statement is iteniiztd. The cost per ton creditted to sani
tation, repairs sundry accounts, interest (all of which are de
tailed by items) is given at $13.90. Cultivating and harvesting cost
was $37.63; total manufacturing cost was $4.95; and depreciation is
set down at $2.82, the total being $59.20 as before stated. Details of
the cost of clearing and plowing, preparing and planting, water sup
ply, water expense, cultivating, fertilizing, harvesting, and manufac
ture, are given in the report.
