The Banker-Farmer Movement in Georgia . Improved Farm Machinery and Alfalfa in Bulloch . Farm Machinery to Match the Automobile . Expensive Farm Motor Power—a Remedy . Another Trim in Cotton Acreage . Everybody was invited to come and spend the day . A meeting of Women was held , in charge of the Twentieth Century club of Reidsville .

Cooperation , such as these far-seeing southern bankers are bringing about , is bound to count . What is Cooperation ? T HAT much-used word is defined in an editorial in Financial America as a concert of effort for mutually beneficent results ; it is not a one sided effort , either in the expenditure of en...

Farming Prospers Most Where Livestock is Kept [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1915

Farming Prospers Most Where Livestock is Kept THE world over , the most enlightened and progressive agricultural districts are found where livestock provides one of the chief sources of income . This is due to several reasons : The livestock farmer can not live from hand to mouth , but must providently lay in a store of feed for his animals throughout the winter months . This same care and foresight is then carried into some of his other activities . Under some systems of agriculture the returns from the year s crops all ccme in at once , which makes for extravagance and idleness , with resultant poverty until another crop , is harvested . On the other hand , under most systems of livestock farming , income is secured several times during the year . The care and control of domestic animals , which are intelligent yet submissive to his will , tends to develop the best instincts in man and make him kindly , self-reliant and trustworthy .

What Bankers are Doing to Help Agriculture and Country Life [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1915

What Bankers are Doing to Help Agriculture and Country Life NO state holds more bankers actively engaged in the banker-farmer movement than Michigan . This magazine has mentioned many institutions which are doing exceptional work . One of the latest examples of this service comes from Fremont . SuccessfulFarming tells the story : Fremont is in the heart of one of the best fruit and dairy regions in the United States . But diseases of various kinds finally got such a hold that there came a time when the fruit was no longer marketable . It was next to impossible to secure a bushel of perfect fruit and it seemed as though the fruit business must die . While things were in this deplorable state , Andrew Gerber , president of the Old State Bank , made a business trip through the West . He noticed the perfect fruit of Washington and Oregon and upon inquiry found it to be largely due to spraying . This opened his eyes to the fact that the orchards of Fremont could still be made profitable ...

Three Kansas Farmer Problems—the Banker Can Help Solve Them [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1915

Three Kansas Farmer Problems—the Banker Can Help Solve Them IT is generally recognized that the surest , most practical , and most economical way of maintaining By Dean W . M . Jardine Kansas State Agricultural College permanently a profitable agriculture for any state situated like Kansas , is by adopting a system of farming that includes both crop and livestock production on the same farm . The livestock population of Kansas ought to be double what it is today , in order that the greatest benefit may be derived from the crops produced . Especially is this true if farmers are to realize fully on such by-products as straw , corn stalks , sorghum stalks and the like . These usually go to waste upon most farms through lack of sufficient animals to consume them . On March 1 , 1914 , the total number of animals reported for the state , including horses , mules , milk cows , other cattle , sheep and swine , was 5 , 184 , 710 , or 345 , 752 less than was reported for the previous year .

To Farm High-Priced Land [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1915

To Farm High-Priced Land FARM lands have advanced until they have reached a price that staggers many a young man counting on buying a farm in the future . These farms will never again be earned by men who grow timothy , pasture much land with cattle , or grow much oats . This system would work with fifty-dollar-an-acre land , but it will not work with two hundred and fifty-dollar-an-acre land . The man who expects to pay out on this high value must do two things . First , he must get rid of those farm practices that will not pay labor , interest , and taxes . Second , he must substitute systems that will pay taxes , interest and large returns for his labor . These two involve the whole scheme of a permanent , profitable system of agriculture . First , substitute the silo for the pasture , except for hog pasture and perhaps a small pasture for breeding stock . Second , seed oats only where intending to seed clover mixed with timothy or alfalfa . Never leave clover seeding more than o...

Better Farming , Not Federal Laws , Will Bring Better Credit [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1915

Better Farming , Not Federal Laws , Will Bring Better Credit IN the first place , it is interesting to discover where all this talk about rural credits By B . F . Harris , tnis so-canea demand tor farm credit legislation in the last two or three years , originated . I am certain that it did not originate with any large number of farmers , and that the demand is not nation-wide or general , but that it comes largely from politicians and misguided , so-called friends of the farmers . The question of origin is only interesting or important in so far as it makes clearer to us who the active ones are , and how honest and competent , sane and helpful are their motives and plans . Aside from all this , however , if we need additional farm credits , we need them no matter whether the subject is new or old , or who brings it up , provided we are properly prepared for it . I am in deep sympathy with , and working for every sane movement that makes for a better agriculture and rural life , —or...

Safe Farming First , then Loans , is Plan of Southern Bank [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1915

Safe Farming First , then Loans , is Plan of Southern Bank I DO not believe that my views on rural credit are based on a sufficiently wide experience with agricultural conditions over the United States to be of very much value . However , I am glad to give them for possibly my experience in a newly developed section of the South will be of some assistance in a general discussion of the subject , especially if the assumption is made that in very few localities of the United States is agriculture on a really stable basis .

? • ? ? $ » * J * More Important Than Interest [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1915

? • ? ? $ » * J * More Important Than Interest IN the payment of a debt it is not the interest but the principal which gives the greatest trouble , except where interest rates are exorbitant . The reason it has seemed necessary to emphasize this elementary fact is- that many people seem to imagine that if interest on farm loans can be reduced from 7 per cent to 5 per cent , or from 6 per cent to 4 per cent , conditions will be made easy for the farmers . It is important that interest rates be lowered wherever it is economically possible , but it is vastly more important that farmers should learn how to pay back the principal easily . —Dr . T . N . Carver , Harvard university . ? ? ? Largely a State Problem AFTER making . some little study of that question , trying to understand it in some 18 or more counties , wandering about our own states , North , South , East and West , I am very much of the opinion that most of this particular task of bringing the landless man into ownership mu...

A Practical Lesson from Ohio [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1915

A Practical Lesson from Ohio IF the U . S . Rural Credits commission had devoted just a little time to the investigation of conditions at home , they would have found in the American system of building associations , a big , strong , aggressive and successful institution , that is exactly fitted and prepared to do the work and solve the problem . Informal reports gathered from 500 Ohio associations show outstanding loans on farms to the number of 5 , 334 , amounting to $ 11 , 147 , 733 . 51 . The whole land loan bank plan overlooks the fact that there are far more American farmers who are today looking for a safe and profitable place in which to invest their savings than there are farmers who are looking for mortgage loans . —K . V . Haymaker , Defiance , Ohio . ? ? ?&amp;gt; No Government Money for Germans THERE are men in Congress , and men who want to get in Congress , who are going up and down this country telling the farmer that if you will send me to Congress or the United...
