Leaders in Nation ' s Food Campaign Urge Banker-Farmer Cooperation [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
Leaders in Nation s Food Campaign Urge Banker-Farmer Cooperation Your Help Is Welcome and Necessary is Message to Bankers THE United States Department of Agriculture wants the cooperation of every banker—indeed , is greatly in need of it . There is something for every banker to do in cooperation with the Department and the state agricultural colleges . If you dont know just how you can cooperate in your own community , the Department is ready to make suggestions . This was the message brought by Dr . Raymond A . Pearson , president of the Iowa State Agricultural College , but serving as emergency assistant secretary of agriculture , to the agricultural conference held at Atlantic City , New Jersey , during the annual convention of the American Bankers association . The message was repeated by Bradford Knapp , also representing the Department of Agriculture , who had long ago recognized the necessity of bankerfarmer cooperation in extension work in the South of which he is in charge ...
Why Every Banker Should Cooperate [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
Why Every Banker Should Cooperate By Raymond A . Pearson Assistant Secretary of Agriculture IT is most natural , indeed , that bankers should be interested in agriculture . The prosperity of our country depends upon its agriculture and it is the barometer of prosperity . If every tillable acre in the United States could produce an average of one bushel of grain more it would require 150 , 000 freight trains to take it to the market , and when we require such transportation as that to take it to the market we are affecting every business along the line . It is hard for me to think of any gathering of men and women in these anxious times other than a war conference . Agriculture has been falling behind in this country . James J . Hill said that unless farming conditions were improved and the tillage increased , there would be many people in this country who would go to bed hungry . We need your help , and there is something for every banker in the United States to do in connection wit...
What Safe Farming is Doing for Southern Agriculture—The Banker ' s Part [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
What Safe Farming is Doing for Southern Agriculture—The Banker s Part By Bradford Knapp U . S . Department of Agriculture 1 HAVE had the privilege of speaking to most of the bankers associations in the southern states . I want to tell you why that happened . For a good many years we had been toiling diligently to reconstruct agricultural economics of the southern states and some years ago I got to delving into the financial side of it . I said to myself , The trouble with me is I have been talking to the wrong side , I have been talking to the farmers about changing the system of agriculture and it will now be necessary for me to talk to the bankers about the changing of the system of credits , because the agriculture is dependent in many sections where the credit system is not liberal , upon other sections of the country for its products . There are sections of farms where the type of credit controls the agricultural system and fixes the economic development of the country . Progre...
How to Increase Production [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
How to Increase Production By Jacob Lipman Dean New Jersey Agricultural College THE production of food can be increased only by the increasing of acreage and by the increasing through scientific methods of the yield per acre . A great deal has been done during the present season , but it is impossible to produce on land that has been neglected . In New Jersey we happen to be doing some experimental work with fertilizers and we have been able to produce an increased production of five bushels per acre , and we expect to produce a greater increase per acre next spring . I hope the bankers will make every effort to increase the fertilizing of farms , and also take up the question of transportation of fertilizer and this expediting of its distribution . We can in this way increase production without increasing acreage and that means conservation of labor which is one of the things that confronts the farmers in the United States , as well as animal labor and food . We have in the United ...
Food F . O . B . the Kitchen Door Must be America ' s Slogan for Next Year [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
Food F . O . B . the Kitchen Door Must be America s Slogan for Next Year F OOD conservation is as important and vital as food production . The homes of America are acquiring familiarity with the subject of food conservation hitherto unknown , and this familiarity brought about an unprecedented activity in preparing foodstuffs for winter uses . This brings us , naturally , to the general question of eliminating the middleman as far as may be possible . The town people who have been gardening and who have been storing away food in their cellars and on their pantry shelves have been striking a telling blow at the prices that have made the cost of living so prohibitive . An economist tells us that the price of garden vegetables has risen about twenty-two per cent the past year , while the increase in grain and some has been several times as great .

Here ' s the Plan of the Food Administration—Cooperatel [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
Here s the Plan of the Food Administration—Cooperatel By G . Harold Powell rf « HE food problem of this country , so far as I the war is concerned , is the furnishing of a large quantity of concentrated foodstuffs to our allies for the purpose of feeding the armies abroad , the armies at home , and the population of our country ; also in furnishing that product and conserving the tranquillity of our own people and preventing the disturbances that always come to a country where high prices are attendant upon the food supply . There is a great shortage of cereals abroad ; the cattle supply is short ; sugar is short in France , and most of the food staples are short in Europe , and in our own country we are also short in staples . We have a great problem confronting us in the feeding of our allies abroad and our own people at home . As Mr . Hoover has frequently pointed out , the armies at the front must be well fed and consumption of food increases rather than decreases . The great po...
Agriculture and the Banker [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
Agriculture and the Banker MOST significant was the interest manifested in the agricultural conference , held at Atlantic City , New Jersey , on the first day of the annual convention of the American Bankers association . The conference developed from what was originally intended to be only a meeting of the members of the Agricultural Commission of the association and such representatives of the committees on agriculture of the bankers state associations as happened to be present at the convention , into a meeting attended by more than 300 bankers . This was all the more gratifying because many other section meetings were held at the same time . That such national leaders as President Pearson of Iowa State college , acting assistant secretary of agriculture and Dr . Bradford Knapp , of the Department of Agriculture should be glad to participate was also gratifying while their message that Uncle Sam s great Department of Agriculture welcomes the cooperation of the banks—indeed , decl...

Messages by Banker-Fanner Leaders to the Atlantic City Conference [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
Messages by Banker-Fanner Leaders to the Atlantic City Conference J . Ft . Wheeler , Wisconsin THE Wisconsin association engaged in this work about seven years ago . Recently a little bank at North Lake , Wisconsin , off of the railroad , conducted what it called a bankerfarmer mixer . It was the most unique meeting I have ever heard about . It shows the result of our work in this country . In Wisconsin where for seven years we have been having this campaign among the bankers urging them to become better farmers , we have induced 150 out of the 850 bankers in the state to become interested in this work . Mr . B . M . Smith , president of the North Lake bank , was many years a traveling man . He went into the banking business and has made a remarkable success as a banker and the reason he has made this success is that he has carried out bankerfarmer work as it should be carried out . He had a tent erected out of doors . He raised $ 500 in a town of not over 200 people , got out a ban...
Why We Must Increase Our Chief Food Animals—Cattle , Sheep and Hogs [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
Why We Must Increase Our Chief Food Animals—Cattle , Sheep and Hogs By Herbert C . Hoover U . S .

Pork general poncy . curopean uauuns LU reduce their herds by slaughter of their animals to an extent far beyond their annual production . Table I indicates the most recent survey of this situation . This encroachment into the herd will go on with increasing velocity as long as the war 1 ists . Prior to the war our western allies have always imported a considerable amount of animal products . Europeans have always relied , to a considerable degree , upon the United States for pork products , and if they slaughtered the larger portion of their hogs they could still not supply their demands for fats . In the matter of beef , it appears to me that the Allies can , by sufficient encroachment int...

Messages from Banker-Farmer Leaders [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
Messages from Banker-Farmer Leaders ( Continued from Page 9 ) to you possibly not upon the highest plane , but today we are making it to you upon the highest plane—Patriotism 1 W . C . Gordon , Missouri Our idea in Missouri has been to stimulate and encourage rather than dictate what the farmer should do . I would like to emphasize particularly the work of the county organization . Each county has a particular problem . of its own particular agricultural work in which it is interested and which can be enlarged to a great extent . In our own state three years ago we started with two county organizations and at this time we have sixty-two out of 114 counties organized and each one is doing something definite along agricultural lines . I particularly urge you to organize yourselves into county associations in order to meet the conditions in your particular counties . One of the things that is going to be the salvation of agriculture in our country is the arousing of the interest of the...
What Poor Seed . Plant or Stock Diseases and Boarder Cows Cost Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
What Poor Seed . Plant or Stock Diseases and Boarder Cows Cost Farmers THE present world struggle is breaking and remaking all hitherto accepted standards . It is bringing every country to a keener realization that an increasing degree of attention must be paid to agricultural development . Nations are finding out that to maintain their existence they must be able to feed themselves and in times of war this is even more essential than in times of peace . At present in Europe between 35 , 000 , 000 and 40 , 000 , 000 men have been withdrawn from productive industry and are now at work killing each other or supplying munitions with which to facilitate this process . America is to throw her additional millions of men into this maelstrom of war . This dislocation of food production forces in Europe throws on the Americas much of the burden of feeding the hunger stricken countries of Europe . Australia and India would be possible sources of supply , especially as to wheat , if transporta...
How Kansas Bankers Paved the Way for Livestock Improvement [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
How Kansas Bankers Paved the Way for Livestock Improvement DURING the last three years district agricultural work in southeast Kansas has been devoted principally to livestock improvement and livestock problems as they exist in this section , the main object being to encourage a herd of good breeding stock on every farm to convert the rough unmarketable feeds into a marketable product and at the same time build up the soil with the manure produced from the land . Ordinarily we think of Kansas as a new state rich in soil fertility and that the statement to build up the soil is premature in this section . Nevertheless , soil building is one of our great problems affecting present and future prosperity and only by A Kansas Girl and Her Pet means of livestock can it be accomplished practically . A small herd on every farm is much better than to have one or two large feeders buying up all the available feed in a community , feeding it out on a creek bank whereby the manure eventually goe...
The Opportunity of the Farmer and Banker [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
The Opportunity of the Farmer and Banker By R . L . Watts Dean Pennsylvania State College NEVER in the history of the United States have the bankers and farmers had such an opportunity to cooperate for the purpose of increasing production and bettering rural life conditions . The banker , on the one hand , realizing that agriculture is the backbone of our country and of the world , is eager to give the necessary financial aid ; and the farmer , on the other hand , is more ready than ever before to apply sound scientific principles to production and marketing . A country-wide program of scientific farming , adequately supported financially , cannot fail to bring results of tremendous value . Our agricultural leaders are well aware of the fact that the farmers look to you for counsel relative to the business side of farming more than to any other class of men . This necessarily places you in a position where you can bring special pressure to bear upon important questions affecting pro...
Don ' t Hamper the Farmer With Bad Roads [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1917
Don t Hamper the Farmer With Bad Roads BEFORE a year has passed nearly a million men now engaged in productive occupations will be called to the colors in the war for humanity and decency . About a fourth of this number will probably be drawn from agricultural pursuits , cattle raising and the like . This will put a strain on our farmers , who have been urged to do everything in their power to make their lands yield their maximum possible return . Our farmers have responded nobly to the Nation s call for all the food they can produce , but of what use is it to produce food supplies if they cannot be delivered to market ? Corn that stays in the farmers cribs as it was held for months during last winter in many parts of the corn belt , does nobody any good .. Wheat that stays on the farms of Kansas as it stayed last winter helps only the rats . Why hamper the farmer who is working from dawn to dusk to help win the war by making him try to haul our food supplies over roads that grandfa...
