The Banker-Farmer Excursion [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
The Banker-Farmer Excursion A NOTHER successful banker-farmer excursion to the state college of agriculture has been held by the Wisconsin Bankers association . Blizzards did not keep the farmers away . Side by side , farmers and bankers added to their knowledge of better farming and better livestock methods . I want to take this opportunity to thank the Wisconsin Bankers association for what it is doing for agriculture in this state , said Dean Russell to the excursionists . This meeting is one illustration of the kind of cooperation that is secured with this organization , when sixty to seventy-five bankers with soo of their farmer neighbors come here from all parts of the state for a two-days meeting . The agricultural committee of this association is working all the time for the improvement of this basic industry . It is not strange that a new idea of the banker has developed in Wisconsin—that the farmers of that state are willing to concede that the banker is human and that his...
The Calf Clubs [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
The Calf Clubs ONE of the most interesting developments of banker-farmer activity has been the calf club for boys and girls . The idea is sweeping over the country . It has been developed most widely , perhaps , in Illinois . This magazine has published many articles upon the calf clubs and has been able to furnish information to hundreds of bankers who have wanted to know how to start a club . On the last Saturday in March ; what is believed to be the largest calf club ever organized was formed at Carmi , Illinois , by John M . Crebs , chairman of the committee on agriculture of the Illinois Bankers association . This banker had played a prominent part in the organization of the numerous calf clubs in Illinois , and when he organized his own club , he did not stop until lie had applications for 237 calves . The calf club is giving a long-needed incentive to interest in livestock and dairying to Illinois and other states . It can be safely commended to bankers as a most fruitful fie...
Big Crops [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
Big Crops ONE of the best things on the subject which we have . seen is from the Farmers Review of Chicago : A reader demands his subscription cancelled because you howl about raising big crops . Big crops would have come in pretty handy last year , wouldn t they ? Tell us what prices are going to be and we will tell you what kind of crops to raise . Know any farmer who has got poor raising big crops ? The farmer whose yield is above the . average yield is the man who will make the money in 1917 .

The County Agent [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
The County Agent THE Agricultural Commission of the American Bankers association is committed to a campaign which will eventually place a county agent in every agricultural county in the United States . The present situation should be an incentive to every community to accelerate its movement to secure an agent . The county which has a good agent at work today is fortunate . His advice will be worth thousands of dollars to the farmers of the county . Farm Life puts the case well : A thousand additional county agents are needed in the northern and western states . That is , there are 1 , 461 counties in these states and only 460 county agents . Now , a careful agricultural college man has figured that each county agent makes and saves for his farmer employers at least $ 30 , 000 a year , over and above his salary and expenses . In other words , the 460 counties with agricultural agents or managers , reaped excess profits therefrom J 13 , 800 , 000 ; while the thousand counties withou...

Livestock Essential to Sound Farming—Let ' s Have More in 1917 * [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
Livestock Essential to Sound Farming—Let s Have More in 1917 * S EVEN reasons why the keeping of livestock is essential to sound agriculture are the maintenance of soil fertility , the utilization of raw material , the need of motive power on the farm , cash income , the added attractiveness of a farm on which there is livestock , the training in business sense obtained by keeping animals , and economical better ana more living for the farm family To maintain soil fertility humus is necessary . This can be obtained from two sources-green crops plowed under , or barnyard manure When green crops are plowed under , however , there is no direct revenue from them . By feeding these crops to livestock , valuable products that can be maintained for cash are obtained . At the same time the manure produced by the animals retains a very large percentage of the fertilizing value of the feed For this reason it is more economical to feed than to plow under without feeding , and the most practica...
What Bankers Everywhere are Doing to Cooperate With the Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
What Bankers Everywhere are Doing to Cooperate With the Farmer ENTER the sheep club for boys and girls as another excellent method of banker-farmer activity . C . T . Cline , president of the First National bank of Mancos , Colorado , has enlisted the interest of twenty boys in sheep-raising . Each boy is to get twenty head of registered sheep , the bank loaning the money for the purchase and the boy signing the note with his father as security . The note may be renewed twice , thus giving the boy three years in which to pay for his sheep , and also , if at the end of the first year it is evident that the young sheepman is making good , he may have more credit for the purchase of more sheep . The boys will be required to keep accurate records of their flocks in a special book furnished by the bank . Each boy must make a report every three months . The Bank s Circulating Library A circulating library for the use of farmers has been installed by the Citizens State bank of Jewell City ...
Seventeen Agents in Ohio [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
Seventeen Agents in Ohio THE farmer is the proprietor of a business enterprise . This enterprise may involve several thousand acres of land or it may yield several hundred dollars for each acre ; or it may involve only a few acres and a few hundred dollars total income . Whether the business be large or small the farmer is the general manager . Though he may spend much of his time in routine manual labor , he is not a clerk , not a foreman , but a member of the firm ; frequently sole owner . In this position he is the man who determines the kind of farming to be carried on . What he wants is advice which will enable him to increase the profits of his business and the comforts of his home . Every day this man is asking us , How shall I know which cows are feeding me that I may live and which cows I am feeding that they may live ? In this time of unheard of prices for fertilizers he is asking us , How many pounds of which kind shall I put on this field and how far can I make the green...
Bankers and the Farm Loan Act—As Seen by One of Uncle Sam ' s Board [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
Bankers and the Farm Loan Act—As Seen by One of Uncle Sam s Board By Herbert Quick federal Farm Loan Board Whether or not he is ready to subscribe to all the conclusions of this official advocate , every banker will find it worth while to read this article . IN a world in which selfishness is , and must be , the ruling motive of average human action , it is to be expected that bankers , who in spite of all that is sometimes said against them are distinctly human , will conduct themselves towards the Federal Farm Loan Act in accordance with the probable effect of that Act on the business of banking . No one should expect , or will expect , either more or less than such a course of conduct , and after all , selfishness properly defined , is the mainspring of human progress . It is also the cause of most human suffering and disaster . It produces progress if it is enlightened selfishness , and disaster if it is dark , narrow and obscure selfishness . If the bankers of the United States...
What the Bank ' s Cooperation Means [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
What the Bank s Cooperation Means EVERY banker in attendance at this conference is demonstrating that he is taking interest in the farmer as well as from him , and the closer cooperation which can be secured between banker and farmer , the more rapidly will our state be developed . Statistics show that 95 per cent of all the business transactions of today are settled for by bank checks and drafts and only 5 per cent are settled for in actual coin of the realm . This of itself should be sufficient evidence of the value of a bank account to warrant every farmer and business man , as well as the housewife who undertakes the payment of part of the family expenditures , to warrant them in maintaining a bank account and paying their bills by checks . The banker in your community will gladly become your assistant book-keeper in this way . He will furnish you all the books , even pen and ink in some cases , but you must not be surprised that he asks you to deposit the funds in his bank befo...

No Mystery About Credit [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1917
No Mystery About Credit THERE is no mystery about credit . It is simply a . means by which the possessor of purchasing power , which he does not care to use at once , is enabled to transfer that purchasing power to some one who does not possess it but who needs it at once in his business . Again , the possession of credit on the part of the farmer does not insure his success . When wisely used , credit is a powerful agency for good ; so is dynamite . When unwisely used , or handled by one who does not understand it , it is dangerous ; so is dynamite . Speaking by and large of facts as they actually are at the present moment , it is probable that as many farmers are suffering because they have too much credit as because their credit opportunities are too limited To be able to borrow a thousand dollars even at the lowest possible rate of interest , say 2 per cent , is a loss to a man who invests it in a way to only bring back $ 1 , 001 . The only possible advantage of having credit is...
FARMERS [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1917
FARMERS The President of the United States appeals to you and to the Men , Women and Children on the Farms J TAKE the liberty of addressing this word to the farmers of the country and to all who work on the farms . The supreme need of our oton nation and of the nations with which we are cooperating is an abundance of food supplies , and especially of foodstuffs . The importance of an adequate food supply , especially for the present year , is superlative . WitJwut abundant food , alike for the armies and the peoples now at war , the whole great enterprise upon which we have embarked will break down and fail . The world s food reserves are low . Not only during the present emergency but for some time after peace shall have come both our own people and a large proportion of the people of Europe must rely upon the harvests in America . Upon the farmers of this country , therefore , in large measure , rests the fate of the war and the fate of the nation . May the nation not count upon t...
