State Associations Make Ready for 1915- ^ Some of Their Plans [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1915

State Associations Make Ready for 1915- ^ Some of Their Plans Alabama Plans Diversification THE South has realized as never before her imperative heed for crop diversification . Business men have come to realize also how completely dependent they are upon the normal production and movement of crops and farm products generally ; Most gratifying has been the practical cooperation given by bankers and other business men to their debtors and especially to the farmer in his effort to hold cotton for better prices . Furthermore , the bankers of Alabama and of other states as well , have pledged their aid in every sound and reasonable way in assisting farmers to reduce greatly their cotton acreage and , in place of the cotton , to produce other profitable crops and more livestock .

Above the Average Yield—There All the Profit Lies [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915

Above the Average Yield—There All the Profit Lies fM j HAT is the most important truth for the American farmer to know ahd put in _ £ practice . He must not be alarmed by the bogey , the higher the yield , the greater the cost , not only per acre but also per bushel —which does not apply to a farming condition wherein the farmer has not begun to get the natural yield of an honestlytreated farm . Our general farming has not reached—and will not reach in our generation—the point where we need to be concerned with this ultimate rule . In twenty-five years perhaps it may be proper to consider it . But not now . It is a fool thing to try to put brakes on the American farmer today—rather he should be encouraged and spurred , more than ever , to prevent him from falling behind in yield and investment returns . The only thing that has saved the American farmer so far has been increase in crops and land values . It required a campaign of twenty-five years in Germany to raise the average whea...

Clarkson men and $ 7 , 300 ( each member paying $ 5 a month , $ 60 a year ) for the purpose of aiding in the building of roads leading into Carthage , Missouri , that could be used with safety , profit and comfort 365 days in the year . The second year it was a combination of 140 men and $ 8 , 400 . During the third year of its existence and the fourth year , just closed , the palpable and hidden forces brought into action on road building operations had developed enough power to run on momentum so far as membership fees were concerned . It was not necessary to collect any dues from members in 1913 and 1914 . During the last two years when the membership of the club were paying no dues , more miles of road were constructed and maintained and greater constructive forces were brought to bear on the subject of road building , than in the two years when membersh...

Farmers Should Plan Now for a Silo This Year—Bankers Should Help [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915

Farmers Should Plan Now for a Silo This Year—Bankers Should Help IN order to appreciate the full value of a corn crop the farmer must feed this crop as silage . A sixty-bushel crop of corn fed as silage is worth as much as one hundred bushels of corn fed in the usual way . In other words , about 40 per cent of the food value of the corn crop is in the corn stalks when fed as silage . Every farm on which any number of cattle is fed should have a silo . We recommend every farmer who keeps a number of cattle to study the advantages and disadvantages of the silo , and then , as soon as economic conditions warrant , build a silo or a number of silos , according to his needs . The silo will make $ 60 worth of corn feed as much stock as $ 100 worth fed before . Not only this , the silo will make 10 acres of good corn when supplemented with clover or alfalfa take the place of 40 to 50 acres of pasture for cattle . _ The dairyman was the first to fully appreciate the value of silage . High-p...

Shall Uncle Sam Finance the Land Banks ? Views Pro and Con [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915

Shall Uncle Sam Finance the Land Banks ? Views Pro and Con Government Aid is Necessary By Hon . Robert J . Bulkley Representative in Congress THE Hollis-Bulkley Bill , proposed by the joint subcommittee representing the Committees on Banking and Currency of the Senate and House , has been before the country for more than seven months and has not been seriously criticised ; certainly no criticism fatal to any fundamental feature of the bill has been made . Comment generally is very favorable to the bill . Most of the members of the House who have studied it have expressed themselves in a friendly manner . It has substantially received the endorsement of the great farmers organizations , though the National Grange resolutions are to the effect that the government aid proposed by the bill is not sufficiently strong . Government aid provided by Section 30 of the proposed bill is , in my judgment , very moderate , yet it has been the subject of criticism . I believe that if an agreement ...

Oathout Agent Champaign County , 111 . culture in the public schools , particularly the city high schools . In spite of all this the farmer remains the same and farms in the same old way . Is there anything wrong ? If so , where is the mistake ? Should we educate city boys to go into the country and become farmers , or would it be more sensible to educate the country bbys along agricultural lines in such a way that they will want to remain in the country as farmers ? Why are we teaching agriculture in the city high school ? Several excuses are given , but reasons are few . If agriculture has any business in the city high schools , it is because many high school graduates become country teachers and because a few country boys and girls attend the city schools . Therefore , the course should be elective . Doubtless the pedagogical ...

We Blow Our Own Horn ¦ [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915

We Blow Our Own Horn ¦ MAY we talk a little about ourselves ? Until last November this magazine was an experiment , being practically the result only of voluntary labor , but the American Bankers association unanimously decided thai : it should continue with the added services of an associate editor . Because of the progress that has been made and of the kind comment that comes to us freely , it does not seem to be undue conceit to say that the American Bankers association has no cause to regret its decision . Kor this magazine is skimming along most prosperously . Something like 15 , 000 bankers read it every month—upwards of 10 , 000 farmers read it , too . These figures are constantly on the increase . The Agricultural Commission believes it is a good thing to have these farmers know what the American Bankers association is doing . The banks which aie sending this magazine to their farmer friends are doing a big piece of cooperation . Men of the colleges of agriculture , individu...

Does the County Agent Pay ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915

Does the County Agent Pay ? T HIRTY . farmers have written letters to the Kansas Farmer to tell what they think of the county agent from their own experience . Their unanimous verdict is that the county agent pays . One farmer originally said in a letter that he did not think the farm bureau and county agent paid . Afterwards he wrote another letter . He had changed his mind . Practically all the farmers gave concrete illustrations of how they themselves had been helped . One man said that the first visit of the county agent to his farm , when the agent showed him the right way to prune an orchard , was worth more than a year s dues . Another farmer saved twenty acres of alfalfa , where the army worm was doing deadly work . Most of the writers say it is impossible to estimate just how much good is being done . Scott county , Iowa , has tried to do this , merely in dollars and cents . Mr . A . F . Dawson , president of the county organization , estimates that an agent has been worth ...
