The packer now has to cope with the uncertainties of fluctu ating prices of both cattle and dressed beef in order to get an average net profit of of a cent per pound. But - elimination f price- fluctuations, now regulated by supply and demand, involves many difficulties: Fresh meat is perish able and must be sold within a few days for what it will bring. When meat accumu lates, competition forces prices down so as to make stocks move. When the supply is short, competition forces prices up, resulting in even distribution of avail able stocks. Demand for meat varies with industrial conditions, with sup ply of ships for export, with the seasons and weather changes, and with supply of other foods. It varies irregularly in different parts of the country; it varies with respect to the different qualities of. meat, and the var ious cuts. The demand for by-products also fluctuates. The supply of live stock reach ing the packing plants, as well as its weight and quality, fluc tuates from day to day, from week to week, and from season to season. The price the packer pays for live stock depends on all these varying conditions. Swift & Company will gladly co-operate in the carrying out of any national policy that will tend to sjteady the prices of live stock and meat. 1918 Year Book of interesting and u-..ructive facts sent on request.
