Why Sheep Raising Will be Profitable for the General Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1917

Why Sheep Raising Will be Profitable for the General Farmer Interest the Boys In the Golden Hoof By F . R . Marshall • U . S . Department of Agriculture AT no time since the Civil War has the interest in sheep raising been nearly so great as it is today . It is considered by some that the return to peace conditions will bring a decline in sheep values similar to that which occurred in the early 70 s . To those who are conversant with the agriculture of the various parts of the United States and with the home and foreign supplies and requirements of sheep products , it seems certain that the American sheep raising industry is entering an entirely new phase that will bring a large and permanent increase in the size and number of flocks kept on farms . is difficult a more to forecast the future of the range sheep industry , which has been the main source of our home produced lambs and wool . 11 we except tne sheep industry of Great Britain , we find that the world s wool and mutton hav...

A Plan for Sheep Clubs by the U . S . Department of Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1917

A Plan for Sheep Clubs by the U . S . Department of Agriculture DURING the past year the business world has been brought to realize that there is a serious shortage in the supply of American grown wool . Lamb and mutton are also in strong demand at high prices that seem likely to continue for some time . • The main opportunity for increased raising of sheep is in the farming sections . On most farms the available labor and the varieties of feeds and crops produced can be utilized to much better advantage when a good sized flock of well tended sheep is included in the livestock equipment . The economic conditions that suggest the need and safety of raising sheep have Wool That Means Clothes—and Deposits largely developed in recent years and many farmers are unfamiliar with sheep and with the methods of caring for them . The plan that has proven so successful in interesting and educating young people in the raising of swine and poultry should also give good results in developing the s...

Cashing in on Banker-Farmer Work BANKE R-FARMER cooperation means many better thingsbetter things for the farmer , for the banker , for the community , for the Nation . Every day furnishes a new instance of the fact that it pays to take interest in as well as from the farmer . If you read that excellent article in our September issue by Prof . Clarence Henry , assistant leader of county agents for Indiana , you learned the remarkable story of the Stone City bank of Bedford , Indiana , whose deposits grew from $ 100 , 000 to $ 500 , 000 in four years , all because the bank decided that if it was to expect something from the community , it must do something for the community . Another proof is furnished by E . J . Bodman , secretary of the Union Trust company of Little Rock , Arkansas , in the Arkansas Banker : _ If there still remains in Arkansas any banker who thinks that it doesn t pay to cooperate with the farmer , he is respectfully referred to the case of the Planters Bank and T...

Facts About the War That Every Farmer Ought to Know [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1917

Facts About the War That Every Farmer Ought to Know By E . Davenport Dean Illinois College of Agriculture WAS it necessary to get into this war , and is it wise to send our best young men to fight on foreign soil , and spend fifteen and perhaps fifty billion dollars ? Is it a just war , or is it just a gigantic speculation ? Farmers have been working from daybreak to dark . They have not had time to read , as people in the cities read . I know from talks with many farmers that they do not clearly understand the issues of the war . Some have said to me that they do not understand why we should send our men across the sea to fight . The time is now coming when the farmer will have time to do more reading and more thinking . It is of the utmost importance that his vision of the war shall be clarified . Bankers and other business men can do nothing which will be of more good than to make it a point to discuss the issues of the war with their farmer friends when they come to town . The r...

How Those at Home-on the Farm-in the Bank Can Help to Win the War [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1917

How Those at Home-on the Farm-in the Bank Can Help to Win the War New York Tribune The Most Critical Race in History By Carl Vrooman Assistant Secretary of Agriculture to American Bankers Association I THINK I can safely say that I shall not make any exaggerated statements —for it is not possible to exaggerate the gravity of the crisis that we as a people and as a world-power face . This is the most momentous hour in our history , if not the most fateful hour in all history . It is not merely war that concerns us—and war on a scale transcending anything that the world has seen hitherto in the way of military operations—but we are face to face also with war s most dreadful handmaiden , famine . Not as a people , of course , for we can always hope to feed ourselves , but as one of a sisterhood of nations , we are face to face with famine . We are not starving , ourselves , but millions of our fellow men are . This arch-enemy of all mankind , this dread mother of pestilence , is our gr...

Why a 'Big City' Bank Has Established an Agricultural Department [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1917

Why a Big City Bank Has Established an Agricultural Department By Myron T . Herrick President , Society for Savings , Cleveland , Ohio EVERY city has its close relations with the agricultural district around it . The bigger the city , the larger the circle of tributary farms . The city draws a considerable part of its food supply and raw material for manufacturing from the nearby farming region , and it expects to supply the farmers in return with such manufactured goods as they may require . The relation is one of mutual advantage , and should be one of mutual cooperation . But for the most part the farmer has not had the full cooperation of the man in the city , whose help he most needs—the banker . For fifty years the brains and the financial resources of the country have been centered primarily on manufacture and transportation , and agriculture has- developed against odds . In consequence , the farmer has been out of touch with business men . in the cities , and bankers have pr...

Rallying the Bankers of America [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1917

Rallying the Bankers of America ( Continued from Page 3 ) been organized as a result thereof . We have also distributed over 20 , 000 copies of the agricultural credit rate sheets and several thousand copies of the model landlord and tenant leases , which appeared in the pages of the magazine . This is the kind of practical work by which we have been reaching the bankers , and hundreds of them will testify to the fact that their interest in agricultural and livestock development has been aroused through reading THE BANKER-FAEMER . There is no feature of the work of the American Bankers association which , in my judgment , is of more importance than that of its Agricultural Commission . It should become a permanent committee of the organization . I feel that if the past year has been one of achievement , it is because of the men who have been associated , with me on the Commission . Mr . J . R . Wheeler has not only served with distinction as chairman of the agricultural committee an...

Why Sheep Raising Will Be Profitable [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1917

Why Sheep Raising Will Be Profitable ( Continued from Page 4 ) tageously for wool and lamb production than for any other purpose . ( 3 ) The farm labor problem is materially simplified with sheep as a considerable part of the livestock kept . They require less heavy labor when in winter quarters , and in summer graze off sown pasture crops with a minimum of waste . At the same time they will gather considerable feed not otherwise utilized and will keep the weeds in check in pastures and cultivated fields . This latter quality is of great economic value , but should not be urged as a primary reason for sheep raising . The sheep , even more than other farm animals , requires special study and attention of a kind not likely to be forthcoming in case the flock is established for the main purpose of eating waste and weeds . There are many things to be learned by our farmers about systems of raising sheep and methods of caring for them . Our farm laborers are seldom qualified shepherds , ...

Ways to Mobilize Our Livestock [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 October 1917

Ways to Mobilize Our Livestock AMONG the specific recommendations of the Livestock Industry committee selected by the Secretary of Agriculture and the Food Administrator are the following : That a considerable increase in the beef supply can be brought about by the encouragement of boys baby beef clubs . We suggest that adults be invited to join such clubs as a patriotic way of serving their country s needs . That a very large increase in the production of milk and milk products can be brought about by a better understanding of scientific methods of feeding and of selection of high-pro-ducing cows . We therefore suggest that a strenuous effort be made , to increase the number of cow-testing associations . The stray and useless dog is the enemy of the sheep . We approve the bill now pending to impose a Federal tax upon all dogs . We recommend that all state legislatures should enact laws protective of the sheep grower against dog depredations . Some sections of our country are stocke...
