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.
