Bank ' s Agricultural Agen . t Campaigns Against Scrub Cattle [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1916
Bank s Agricultural Agen . t Campaigns Against Scrub Cattle S TOP the leaks—that is one way to make more money out of our farming . One of the biggest leaks in Halifax today comes from keeping scrub cattle . The experience of just one farmer shows how big this leak may be . This farmer had two cows as near alike as cows could be . One got out of pasture and went to a scrub . The other was bred that same week to a registered Shorthorn sire . Both cows had the same feed and care all winter . The calves came the same week and had the same feed and care all summer . In the fall the calf by the registered Shorthorn was nearly twice the size of the scrub and would have sold for more than twice as much money . The registered Shorthorn sire made all the difference . In the cattle country they figure that a calf by a registered sire is worth $ 5 more at weaning time than a calf by any bull not pure-bred , and worth $ 20 more at a year old . Tests in Halifax bear out the truth of this . Good ...

Plan Banker-Farmer Excursions THE most far-sighted agricultural educators of today are frank to state that the dissemination of the knowledge of the colleges and experiment stations is the greatest problem of today . That is why they welcome the banker as an appropriate agency to assist in . putting this knowledge where it can be used . Only recently Wisconsin bankers fathered a banker-farmer excursion to the state college of agriculture . It was successful beyond expectation .

The Massachusetts Agricultural college in May called in bankers for a conference to discuss means by which they could assist in extending the influence of the institution among the farmers . Banker-farmer leaders should agitate excursions such as Wisconsin h...

Hammering a Dying Tradition [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1916
Hammering a Dying Tradition A FORMER governor of Arizona , R . E . Sloan , addressed the bankers of Arizona . He said that business constantly suffered because of incompetent legislators : The remedy is for the banker , as well as men of other businesses who control large affairs , to come out into the open . Stand up for what you think is right against popular clamor , and you will not lose business . It is a great mistake tor any banker or any other business man to think for a moment that , because he comes out into the open and publicly advocates a position on any subject and manifests a sincere Delief in its truth , he is going to hurt his business . He will only add to his business , because , after all , the people love honesty and sincerity when they see it and they are apt to tollow it . Why that distresses you is because they doubt your sincerity . They have heard so much on the other side , and this , as well as this aloofness of the banker and the other business men , onl...

The Farmer and Good Roads—What They Will Mean to Him [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1916
The Farmer and Good Roads—What They Will Mean to Him MORE than five years ago the United States Office of Public By Coleman du Pont Roads said in one of its reports : An examination of the statistics of population in counties possessing first-class roads will reveal the fact that in almost every case the population has increased , while the sections of the country which have lost in population are conspicuous for impassable roads . In corroboration of this statement a comparison of the reports of the Office of Public Roads with the reports of the United States census for 1900 reveals the significant fact that , in twenty-five counties selected at random , possessing an average of only 1 . 5 per cent improved roads in 1904 , the decrease in population averaged 3 , 112 for each county for the ten-year period between 1890 and 1900 . Contrasted with this showing , the records in twenty-five counties , which possessed an average of 40 per cent improved roads , revealed an increase averag...

A Ringing Message to Washington Bankers—It Fits Everywhere [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1916
A Ringing Message to Washington Bankers—It Fits Everywhere WE ask the banker to get back to the soil by influencing a higher grade of agricultural development . We ask you to get behind the forces within your county and district to utilize the moneys which the state law provides for the employment of a county agricultural agent . It was forcefully brought to our attention during our committee meeting with the state educators that the bankers of this state have lost the confidence of the farmers . The public has the right to demand efficiency in the banker the same as the banker has a right to demand efficiency in his clientele . The very patriotism incumbent upon all who honor good citizenship commands us to enter at all times and in all ways into that degree of cooperation which will serve to promote thrift , dignity , prosperity and consequent happiness . There is no excuse for a banker through an act of omission to exercise a selfish or negligible attitude in the community of whi...

What the Banker-Farmer Movement Has Meant to Michigan Y OUR committee on agriculture congratulates the bankers of Michigan upon the great improvement on the farms and in farm conditions in the state . The value of Michigan farm lands since 1912 has increased $ 189 , 000 , 000 . There are approximately 19 , 000 , 000 acres of farm lands in the state ; and this shows an increase in value of $ 10 per acre . The number of county agents has been increased to twentyfive . The committee attributes most of the increased value to the activities of the county agents . The fact that the bankers have been in the lead in obtaining these county agents is of great credit to their farsightedness . Twenty-five years from now the present babies will be engaged in business and farm activities . The population will have doubled in the state of Michigan , and not one acre of land will have been added to these boundaries . The land by increased production must equal the task laid upon it . This increased...
