' Me ais In Storage
Not "Hoarded"
Live stock is a seasonal crop?like cereals and grains.
It is" ripe" and is marketed in larger quantities in
certain months. This causes a natural oversupply at
one time and a natural shortage at another. >
During the time of oversupply Swift & Company
places some of the meat in cold storage, against the
season of short production. ji
This is a necessity in order that the nation's ration,
of meat?58,000,000 pounds every day in the year?^
may be forthcoming as the consumer requires it. :
This is not hoarding, not price manipulation, not
market control. It is mere common sense.
United States Bureau of Markets1 figures of stocks
of frozen and cured meats July 1 are being used a:s>a
basis for Department of Justice investigations in many
cities. When properly analyzed, based on Swift &
Company's stocks, these figures show:
62 per cent (approximate) is pork end beef cuts, etc.,
cured and in process of curing". It takes 30 to 90
days in pickle or salt to complete the curing process.
12 per cent is frozen pork, of which more than three
quarters is to be cured in the next few months.
7 per cent is lard. This is a normal supply and only
four-fifths of a pound per capita, and much of it
will have to go to supply European needs.
19 per cent is frozen beef and lamb, and miscellaneous
meats, part of which is owned by the Government
and was intended chiefly for overseas shipment. If
this were all diverted to domestic trade channels it
would be only 2^2 lbs. per capita?a 5 days' supply.
From this it will be seen that "meats in storage"
represent unfinished goods in process of curing
and the working supply necessary to assure the
consumer a steady flow of finished product.
