    Heres something, if you can get the rate they are charging. Say $300, you call the company/broker and say hey they want $300 but I'll do it for $150-$200. Under bid them all day, within reason of course.

    Most of them have "poor atitudes". I guess from working in Cold environments with pnemonia and red faces all the time.

    Lumping is a racket .
    In the fresh meat business it all gets billed back to the packer whom in turn Bill's it back to the wholesaler who Bill's it to the retailer and on to the consumer.
    Lumpers have their place for sure and it's hard work .
    It's just wholesalers passing the buck on to consumers.
     
    BUMBACLADWAR Thanks this.
