Only About Half
the Steer is Beef rH : Live Weight 1200 pounds 100% Dressed Weight 672 pounds of Beef 56% When Swift & Company buys a steer weighing 1200 pounds, only about 672 pounds goes to market as beef; the other 528 pounds consists of hide, fats, other by-products, and waste. When the packer pays 15 cents a pound for a steer, he sells the meat to the retailer for about 22 cents. But the packer gets only about 9 cents a pound for the other 528 pounds. This means that the packer gets about 16V_t cents a pound for all the products from a steer for which he pays 15 cents. The difference of 1V_ cents per pound covers the cost of dress ing, preparation of by products, freight on beef to all parts of the United States, operation of dis tributing houses, and leaves a net profit of only about -J4 of a cent per pound on all dressed beef sold. Large volume of business and utilization of parts that were formerly wasted, make this achievement possible. Year Book of interesting and instructive facts sent on request.
