"Above the Average Yield the Profit Lies " [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

Above the Average Yield the Profit Lies im iiiuiiainnitM ^^^ Many banks have distributed reprints of the front page of our February issue . We republish some comment , including a letter from A . J . Bill , a practical agricultural journalist . When Bill says you are right ,, . you generally are . TO the Editor . —I think you have expressed the idea truly and exactly in saying that The higher the yield the greater the cost does not apply to a farming condition wherein the farmer has not begun to get the natural yield of an honestly treated farm . Certainly it is wrong to suggest to the farmer a smaller production ; the natural tendency is far too strong in that direction . Neither is the farmer to be urged to production that is not profitable , or that is barely paying ; but that is not the result of the sane better farming movement that is going over the country at this time . You are clearly right in saying that the profit is in the excess yield above the average . Certainly it is...

What the County Agents Were Worth [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

What the County Agents Were Worth THE state of Iowa could have added five million dollars to its wealth in a year , had a county agent been at work in every county . This is the belief of F . W . Beckman of Iowa State College , who contributes to Wallace s Farmer a resume of the accomplishments of the nine agents at work in the state . These men were worth , directly and indirectly , probably at least $ 500 , 000 to their counties , says Mr . Beckham . And this is probably a conservative estimate , remembering that one county estimates its value at $ 200 , 000 . Mr . Beckman enumerates some of their activities : Every agent had to deal with hog cholera , and altogether they brought about a saving of something like 35 , 000 to 40 , 000 hogs , through the use of serum , and that amounts to $ 300 , 000 , at a low estimate . Through the activities of these nine men , some thousands of acres of alfalfa were seeded , and that promises returns of a good many thousands of dollars a year . T...

WOULD YOU LEAVE YOUR PIANO OUT IN THE RAIN ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915

WOULD YOU LEAVE YOUR PIANO OUT IN THE RAIN ? binder—any piece of farm machinery . Would the story then remain an impossibility ? No . For the lack of care given to farm machinery is conceded by everyone to be a crying fault of the average farmer . One-fifth of the machinery of the country is annually junked . Mr . Farmer discards his implement when it is half worn out by use alone—it has become rusty or rotten because it has not been cared for . A photographer set out to take some pictures of neglected farm machinery . He lived in a fertile section where farmers are well-to-do . Within a radius of a mile , rusting under the snows and rains , he found farm machinery that had cost $ 2250 . Here are some of the pictures he took . Rust rhymes with bust . The old saying , it isnt the trust , its the rust , is still true . This carelessness helps to explain the small net income from many farms . Better credit facilities will not help the farmer if he persists in letting his machinery rust...

Two-Thirds of the Country ' s Cows Earn a Profit of 30 cents a Year ! [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915

Two-Thirds of the Country s Cows Earn a Profit of 30 cents a Year ! CONSIDER the cow . Would you furnish her a homecare for her—raise crops to feed her—milk her dailyall for the munificent profit of 30 cents a year ? A ridiculous question ? Not so fast . Just 1 , 400 , 000 men in the United States are devoting their energies to fourteen million cows—one-third of all the cows in the country . When the interest on their investment is paid and they are given the wages of an ordinary laborer , these same 1 , 400 , 000 men receive as an annual profit on each cow—30 cents ! Sensationalism ? No . This is not the statement of men given to reckless conclusions . Not much . It is the coldblooded verdict of scientific investigators . It is down in black and white . It shows baldly a condition that cannot be side-stepped—a condition that condemns hundreds of thousands of the owners of these unprbfitable cows to a constant struggle with poverty . Yet if these same 1 , 400 , 000 would apply the a...

Why the Eastern Banker , Too , Should Work for Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915

Why the Eastern Banker , Too , Should Work for Agriculture WHY should all of this effort be made in behalf of agriculture at the present time ? There are By Prof . W . P . Hurd Massachusetts Agricultural College many good reasons , lt is no longer a pretty saying—a Were platitude—that agriculture is the foundation of our national prosperity . The fact is being driven home to us on every side by the acuteness of economic conditions . In 1913 we were consuming 91 per cent of our wheat and , 98 per cent oi our corn . The decline in our exports of cattle in five years was 75 per cent . The increase in importation of cattle was 3000 per cent in six years . Our average yield of wheat per acre is 14 bushels . The farm average of western Europe is 32 bushels . This comparison is not at all to our credit . This nation is facing the question of what we are going to eat in 1963 , when our population reaches 200 million , as it undoubtedly will . City and country dwellers alike have come to a k...

Is Education As Important As Bigger Crops , Good Roads , Etc . ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915

Is Education As Important As Bigger Crops , Good Roads , Etc . ? THE question before the house is whether the country school ( generally , not exceptionally ) is keeping up By H . A . Bereman Editor Farm Magazine with the progressive movement which has marked the last fifteen years of agricultural history . In that time there has been such a tremendous change in rural affairs as to amount to a revolution in rural life . Lands have increased from 100 to 500 per cent in value ; prices of farm products have moved from Starvation Gap to Automobile Avenue ; the science of agriculture has made big returns possible ; schools and colleges of agriculture have researched and disseminated information ; farmers institutes have carried the message to Garcia ; the farm press has vastly improved ; the movement for good roads has dragged a little in the rear but we don t mire down like we used to in pap s time ; the trolley takes us for five cents to a nickel moving picture show where we can have a...

Don ' t Sacrifice Livestock is the Warning that Bankers Should Carry [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915

Don t Sacrifice Livestock is the Warning that Bankers Should Carry THE banker realizes fully the fundamental economic principle that most of our By W . E . Briggs wealth is based en land and what it produces , and that he as well as all other lines of business participates directly in the benefits derived from improved agricultural methods that bring increased soil production , and at the same time retain its fertility . Thanks to the press , platform , agricultural colleges and local organizations to promote improved methods of farming , there has been such a general awakening in the subject as to amount to almost an uprising . THE BANKER-FARMER has done most excellent work as an educator for improved farming and conditions on the farm , and as a stimulus to its banker readers to work shoulder to shoulder with their farmer customers to bring about these better conditions . The banker is an important part of the community in which he lives and is generally alert and eager to have a ...

When the County Agent Came : How He Brought a New Vision [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915

When the County Agent Came : How He Brought a New Vision WEVE got something entirely new in agriculture , and we Bloomington ( 111 . ) Pantagraph havent given it a name yet . We don t realize that we have it , but it has broken out here in central Illinois sure enough , and we are all exposed . We haven t stopped to see its meaning , but it is full of meaning . It is a distinct new departure . We have drifted upon it without knowing , without understanding , in the midst of other plans . As we realize what has happened w 6 may feel a little sheepish about it and sputter that it isn t so . But we are in it so deep and it is so related to our selfish interests and our good pleasure that we cant back out . Livingston farmers are very much implicated . Tazewell is hopelessly involved , and it s spreading everywhere a county gets a farm adviser . And McLean got it before the adviser started to work . We have crossed the border line of a new era in farm life , whether we will or not . Do ...

A Letter to the Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915

A Letter to the Farmer ARE you alive to your opportunity in taking advantage of the unusual conditions of 1915 ? That is , are you conserving the fertility of your soil ? Are you , by the use of good seed and by extra care with soil and crop , making every acre do its utmost ? Are you selling your crop at splendid prices , far better than you ever expected , or are you doing a little speculating , waiting for that will o the wisp , the top-notch price ? What are you going to do when you cash in ? Do you intend to use your excess for the best investment that you can possibly make—an investment that will pay you from 10 per cent to 100 per cent annually ? An investment that is not in some distant Golconda . For the only blue sky in it is the dome that arches over your own fields ; you will find the opportunity right on your farm . For your best investment will be farm improvements and equipment . Make your farm a complete and perfect plant while you can . Erect well-tiled , sturdy bui...

The Little Red Schoolhouse [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915

The Little Red Schoolhouse ITS the favorite panegyric of the spread eagle orator . But all his flowery sentences cannot alter fact . We are spending great sums for education—but we are adhering to the old ideas and ancient formulas . Let the banker show the farmer what his schools are costing him . Then determine : What are they returning ? The country school has been tried and found wanting . Every person entitled to speak with authority has found the system guilty of inefficiency . It is not the verdict of faddists but of hard-headed men . Charles W . Eliot explained to BANKER-FARMER readers last year that to improve these schools meant the expenditure of more money but that no expenditure would be so profitable to the community as this . Director Jordan of New York went to the foundation of present day problems of agriculture when he said that the hope of agriculture and rural life is in the children who trudge to school on the country roads today . The state colleges of agricult...

Let s Hear From Them [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1915

Let s Hear From Them IN the event that a . conference of the committees of agriculture of the state bankers association should be held this year , one of the most forward steps would be the presence of men who are doing banker-farmer work individually We refer to the men of the smaller banks , who are fostering agriculture in many ways . They are working shoulder to shoulder with the farmer They know him best . They have had to work out the problem of cooperating with him . So their experiences should be valuable . A symposium of representative banker-farmers like these would be a most helpful feature . We have tentatively broached the idea of their attendance to a few representative workers Most of them are willing to attend and contribute their aid . We would like to hear from others . So if you have been doing banker-farmer work and would be willing to take part in this symposium , let us hear from you . • The County Agents T HEY are not college dudes .
