Re: Livestock through Chicago

Doug,

Very interesting data.

Do they include the total tons, or head, for each livestock category by year?

The ICC reports suggest rail livestock moves did not drop as significantly as this data suggests during the 30's. Did the overall meat industry increase so much that even though trucking was taking over a majority of the market, total rail shipments did not drop as drastically?

Thanks,
Dave Evans
