Retail beef prices have declined an
average of 20 cents per pound from
their peak level of November, 1951, a
report prepared by the National As
sociation of Food Chains shows,
Declines of individual cuts ranged
from Seven cents per pound for rump
roast and 14 cents per pound for T
bone steaks to 22 cents for boneless
round steaks and 25 cents for ground
beet. ,- i.'
The report, based on a survey of
over 7,000 retail food stores, showed
that retail prices have closely followed
the downward trend in the cattle mar
ket. Taking a 1,000-pound U. S.

The food chains report pointed out
that while fancy steaks may be priced
over a dollar a pound, such steak ac
tually comprises only 30 pounds of the
total weight of a 4,000 pound steer,
The average price of all the products
from a 1,000-pound steer is 30 cents.
The report shows that America's re
tail food stores are currently spend
ing more than $12,500,000 annually in
promoting the sale of beef and veal.
Aggressive advertising and promotion
resulted in a 51 per cent increase in
the sale of beef during the first nine
months of 1953, as part of a two-fold
drive by chains to help cattle pro
ducers market their heavy production
and at the same time,, provide good
beef values for the shopping public.

helped Mr. and Mrs. Consumer take
"good, firm strides in that direction."
"We pledge ourselves to continue
these efforts ... to continue doing our
job as food retailers in selling still
more beef in America."

81,548 vehicles inspected, 7,772 com
