L«J Cattle Buying for Swift & Company Swift & Company buys more than 9000 head of cattle» on an efverage, every market day. Each one of them is "sized up" by experts. Both the packer's buyer and the commission salesman must judge what amount of meat each animal will yield, and how fine it will be, the grading of the hide, and the quantity and quality of the fat. Both must know market conditions for live stock and meat throughout the country. The buyer must know where the different qualities, weights, and kinds of cattle can be best as beef. If the buyer pays more than the animal is worth, the packer loses money on it. If he offers less, another packer, ' or a shipper or feeder, gets it away from him. If the seller accepts too little, the live stock raiser gets less than he is entitled to. If he holds out for more than it is worth, he fails to make a sale. A variation of a few cents in the price per hundred pounds is a matter of vital importance to the packer, because it means the difference between profit and loss. F if 4* Swift & Company, U. S.
