I The Price of I : I Pork Chops and Bacon * Here are why the fine, „| J I fresh pork tenderloins and pork *4 If *\ chops, cr savory*4>am, cr crinkiy I bacon, which yot; enjoy for break- ■; | I fast, cost much more per pound than the market quotation on live ! hogs which yerj read in the newspaper: An average hog weighs 220 pounds. * Of this, only 7) per cent (154 pounds) is meat'hnd lard. So, when we pay 15/ a pound for / live hogs, we are really paying more £ than 21/ a pound tf*r the meat which we will get from animals, even after taking into account the value of the by-products. 1 But people shou a preference for only one-third of whole—the pork chops, fancy bacon t and choice cuts from juicy Lams. This means that when we are sell ing Premium bacon at 43/2/ per pound wholesale and Pren&um hams at 30/, i there are other partD for which we get as low as 6/ or 8/. per pound. The j net result is an avenge profit to us of less than 1/ a pound. / The choice cuts are higher because of a demand for them. 4 I * Another thing: entire hog—or about 1/6 th—is usually marketed at once. ~ The rest must be pickled, cured, or snflbked. This takes months, and adds io the cpsts which must be met.
