Banker-Farmer Excursionists See Object Lessons in Better Farming wi f-pHE influence J _ exerted by local bankers , backed by a strong association , has aided in bringing the town and country nearer together , has helped in bettering conditions in the country , has done much to introduce business methods in farm operations and has assisted in dignifying the profession of farming .

The Farmer s Books and the Banker—a Great Chance for Cooperation rV 0 well-to-do farmers came together at their fence line one evening and the following dialogue occurred : By J . R . Wheeler Agricultural Commission out Jay , I am going to sell the farm and put my money on interest . I figure I can get 5 per cent . I can sell out and clean up $ 25 , 000 and the interest on it will give me better than $ 100 a month . It is more than I can make on this place , and I wont have any hard work to do .

I owe $ 200 more at the bank than I did a year ago and I cant get a dollar more for this farm than I could a year ago . You built a new silo this year , didnt you , at a cost of $ 500 ?

How Banks Can Cooperate With Farmers In Keeping Farm Accounts BANKS have the machinery that will greatly assist the farmer in keeping his financial accounts By D . H . Otis Wisconsin College of Agriculture Each farmer should be encouraged to deposit all his receipts in the bank , whether check or cash .

This information should be placed on the deposit slip by the farmer and copied into the pass book by the banker , as per example : Cash , A . J .

This Bank Will Keep the Farmers' Books "—Advertise This [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 May 1916
This Bank Will Keep the Farmers Books —Advertise This WHY do not more farmers keep farm records In the opinion of The Farmer , farmers have not thus far kept adequate records for the simple reason that all such systems thus far devised have been too complicated and have required too much time of the busy farmer . The farmer is not usually a trained bookkeeper , and the ordinary farm accounting system requires more or less bookkeeping ability . After a day s hard work in the field a farmer has no desire to work over books at night , however important this work may be . In studying over the various farm accounting systems , The Farmer has concluded that any such system to be used generally by farmers must be very simple and require only very little time . There is one possible way of simplifying farm accounting which will give the desired results , namely , a system of handling all the farm business through the local bank . If farmers and bankers could be persuaded to work together , ...

How Bankers State Associations Are Working for Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1916
How Bankers State Associations Are Working for Agriculture . Good Work , Texas I THE need of a committee of a sufficiently large number in a state as large as this , so that each member would represent a district with which he was familiar , was so apparent that we divided the state into fourteen districts . County chairmen in turn have been appointed by our fourteen district chairmen . The county chairmen in turn have named their local committees , in this way making a complete network of men in each county to carry on this work . There have been more hogs , more cattle , more poultry , more food for the table and foodstuffs for the stock produced this year than has been produced te many years , and the farmers of the country are in better financial condition than they could possibly have been under such adverse conditions if they had continued the one-crop policy which they have heretofore followed . A few years more of wise diversification in line with the ideas promulgated by th...
How the Bank-Agriculturist is Known as the "Farmers' Minister " [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1916
How the Bank-Agriculturist is Known as the Farmers Minister THE accompanying figures represent only what has been recorded . Much has been done on which no records have been kept and from which no tangible results can be seen , but it is all with the idea of rendering the best possible community service . It is my firm | | | belief , one which is being voiced m [ by many of our leading agricultural leaders and journals , that we have entered upon a held ot endeavor that is bound to bring greater results than any other agricultural work now in progress . Our livestock plan has been well received . Dealers here have repeatedly stated that I have ruined the market for them since our cows have turned out so well . The story is current in a nearby market that there is little use to ship cows to this section as all the farmers are waiting to secure one through our department . A prominent cattle dealer stated that our second lot of cattle , taken as a whole , was the best lot ever shipped...

This Banker Talked County Agent Till He Was Hoarse—But Got One ! [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1916
This Banker Talked County Agent Till He Was Hoarse—But Got One ! BACK in 1912 a young banker from Stillwater , Minnesota , went to the By Louis M . Tobin annual meeting of the bankers state association . He heard much of the county agent idea and every time anyone discussed the plan of having a trained agriculturist take authentic information direct to the man on the farm , the young banker listened hard . The more he heard , the more he was convinced that the county agent method was the most practical by which to reach the farmer . He determined that if it was at all possible , the farmers of his county should have the benefit of this new idea . The Washington County Better Farming association was the result of that determination . Last January the association held its third annual meeting . Twelve hundred men and women attended—that is sufficient evidence that the association is thriving and that it must be accomplishing its purpose . And Dean Wood of the Minnesota college of agri...

The New Idea of the Banker [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 June 1916
The New Idea of the Banker OUR cartoon is more than a flight of fancy . Numberless bankers have developed a new idea of themselves in the public mind by their banker-farmer activity . At last the country has begun to realize the banker as he is —a fellow-citizen , whose profession instead of shutting him off from • participation in movements for community and national betterment , rather affords him a wonderful opportunity . Go to the small town newspaper . It is the true reflection of the nation s mind . In Elletsyille , Indiana , they publish The Farm . It recently said : THE BANKER-FARMER has a definite mission , and is filling the mission in no uncertain way . The idea has spread to nation-wide proportions , and now almost every bank in tlie land cultivates to the utmost the confidence of the farmer , and is anxious to cooperate with him . The bank president who does not have it in his heart to take the farmer into his private office and have a heart to heart talk , and advise a...
