War ! Keep Breeding Stock , Feed Cheap Roughage , Save Grain for Food' [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1917
War ! Keep Breeding Stock , Feed Cheap Roughage , Save Grain for Food By Carl Vrooman Assistant Secretary of Agriculture Bankers ! Read this important article which Secretary Vrooman has written especially for THE BANKER-FARUEI . Kead it carefully—digest it—show it to your stockmen . THE present livestock situation is unparalleled in our history . Quite apart from the war , it has been evident for several years to those who have kept informed regarding meat production that the increase in numbers of meat animals in the world was not keeping pace with the in crease in population , and that higher prices were inevitable . While the war and the prosperity of our people have been contributing causes for the extraordinary prices now being received for all food products , another great underlying cause has been and is a world shortage of meat . In other words , the war has merely intensified a condition which to a considerable degree would have been created anyhow . After the close of the...
Why the Banker Should Help to Increase Livestock Production [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1917
Why the Banker Should Help to Increase Livestock Production Production of Meat Animals Falls to Keep Pace with Population By J . Ogden Armour AGRICULTURE , and especially the livestock phase of it , is today one of the most momentous problems that ever confronted a nation . With our food stocks depleted and prospects for the coming crop year none too good , we are entering actively into a worldtvar , the most gigantic and far reaching conflict that history has ever known . We are asking men to leave the plow and the cattle range and take up rifles ; we are moving in a direction that means fewer producers of food and more consumption . The world situation , as regards the food supply , is so serious that I do not hesitate to assert that unless the food producers of America can greatly increase production , hunger and maybe actual starvation will come to thousands of human beings with the flying of snow next winter . And I likewise foresee that only through greatly increased productio...
Farmers Will Make Money With Sheep Permanent on Farm Program [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1917
Farmers Will Make Money With Sheep Permanent on Farm Program By W . C . Coffey University of Illinois Here s a field for the banker-farmer . Bankers in various ways can promote interest in sheep-raising . State associations should urge legislation to curb the sheep-killing dog . D URING the past two decades there have been few , if any , years in which farm flocks properly handled would not have yielded a good profit But in spite of this fact there has been an almost constant decline in sheep growing in the middle and eastern parts of our country . Hence , to those who have an abiding faith and interest in sheep husbandry , present conditions furnish a golden opportunity for placing the sheep in the position that it deserves . These conditions are somewhat peculiar because they hold attractions to both our business instinct and our patriotic devotion . That is , interest in sheep is quickening first , because investment in them promises to be profitable and second , because with the...

Keep on the Job [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1917
Keep on the Job IF the banker-tanner movement needed a justification , it was quickly found when the Republic struck for right and liberty . The thought of the nation quickly turned to food . Agriculture made the front page . There was an immediate if tardy recognition of the importance of the basic industry for war or peace . Machinery was put in motion to urge the farmer to farm his best But a powerful machine was already in action—the thousands of country bankers , who have worked side by side with the farmer in times of peace . They were in a position , because of their past cooperation with the farmer , to convince him that it would be patriotic and profitable to produce more food . When the planting is all finished , there will be countless other ways in which the banker can cooperate . The banker , more than ever , should keep on the job the year round- The fanner will bring him various problems for counsel . Itie closer relations , engendered by the momentous occurrences of ...

Good Sires Are Money Makers [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1917
Good Sires Are Money Makers The problem of securing good sires is serious . Often bull clubs are formed by the farmers themselves , who combine their purchasing power to get the services of good sires cooperatively . In other communities , bankers , merchants and creamery owners furnish funds on long time notes , making arrangements for payment at the end of a two year period . A system of leasing sires whereby a part of the money received from each fanner for service fees is used to pay the cost of bulls , is in use in many communities .

Bankers State Associations Rally Forces to Cooperate for More Production [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1917
Bankers State Associations Rally Forces to Cooperate for More Production s «»»» « Every bankers state association has rushed to answer the call of the government to lend a hand to the movement for increased food production . The circulars reproduced on this page give an idea of how the associations urged their member-banks to enlist .

How Better Livestock Followed the County Agent—Told by a Farmer By Kirk Griggs , K . F .

Start a movement for an agent in YOUR county . The February BAHKEI-FAKMES tells how—send for a copy . CONSIDERABLE interest has been aroused relative to benefits to be derived from the employment of county agents , or farm demonstrators . The farm papers are full of suggestions which , if followed , would prove of advantage to the farmer . We read them interestedly , agree with the writer thereof , and pass on to other matters . What we need is an awakening . Theories are all right and proper , but we must have an example to follow . No enterprise of any magnitude requiring more than one person ever succeeded without a leader , whether in the government of a country or the management of a farm . If every county would...

A notable example was the campaign of the American National bank of Richmond , Virginia , which organized a garden &lt; lub with 2000 members .
