To Livestock Producers:
HAVE you ever considered the full importance to you of the market
place afforded you in Omaha? Have you ever thought what it would
mean if you had to ship your livestock and the products of your farm
and field to some distant point to sell them? Suppose you were without an
always-open market at hhnd. It would cost you more to sell an added
cost which- would have to come out of money that is now part of your
profit. Your net profit would be less; the earning power of your land
would be lowered, and hence the value of your land would be decreased.

Therefore, it distinctly pays you to have a strong,
central market place and trading headquarters in
your midst pays you to do everything possible to
help in its upbuilding.
When you think of it this way, the fact that Armour
has invested heavily here in plants, machinery and
equipment to stabilize your market, takes on a new
importance to you. For, then, you realize why it is
to your own personal interest to help make this plant
a success by keeping it busy. That Armour pays
producers in the Omaha territory about $75,000,000
a year for cattle, hogs and sheep is of huge signifi
cance to every farmer for miles around. These mil
lionshave a very direct bearing on general pros
perity and the worth of land per acre.
Then consider the Armour investment here from an
other angle. Armour does a local business of approximately-$84,000,000
yearly.

In addition to the $75,000,000 paid to producers,
they pay out around $4,000,000 in wages. Another
$3,500,000 goes into the purchase of supplies, much
of which are bought from nearby concerns. And a
heavy sum is paid in local and State taxesx
These regular distributions of enormous amounts
enable this whole district to have better stores for
you to trade with they enable drygoods and cloth
ing stores, furniture and hardware men, grocers, im
plement dealers and other retailers to carry better
stocks. And by giving them steady sale for their
goods, you are assured of better places to do your
buying.
Omaha is your logical market place and the natural
trading center of this entire territory. By giving it
the support that keeps your market always open,
. you are at the same time making it a better center
for the purchase of your necessary supplies.
