A first group tries to produce what the market wants, when it wants it and in the quantity and quality desired. A second group just produces without consumer preference consideration and then tries to force its products through the markets at any price. It is largely this second group's actions that create marketing problems. In any food selling program there are fundamental requirements. One of these requirements is that producers do everything* they can to help themselves. By doing this the need for sales promotion activities is greatly reduced. Another requirement is that in order to get help from retail agencies in sales promotion for a food in plentiful supply the need ...

August, 1950 Cheaper Food —Promise or Political Lure? If the American people want to keep on getting plenty of good food at fair prices, they should not swallow the sugar-coated pill known as the Brannan Plan. This plan, if adopted, would be a raw deal for farmers and consumers alike. It won't stand the test of analysis. It won't give us cheap food. The way to continue getting adequate supplies of good food at reasonable prices lies in high production per farmer and steadily increasing efficiency in farm production. This has been our way up to now, and it is a way of progress. In 1850 the average American farm worker produced enough food for five people; in 1920, enough for 10, and by 1945 for 15. Common sense dictates that we should improve on our past successes, not take an entirely different course. The course being charted for us by Secretary of Agriculture Charles F. Brannan would beeline the farmers of this country in the direction of stabilized poverty. Few consumers are awar...

8 Business Up Last Year Among Co-Ops A rapid growth of cooperative buying and selling and servicing in Virginia is reported by Dr. J. L. Maxton, marketing specialist at V.P.I. Last year, there were 50 marketing cooperatives with 28,000 members doing $50,000,000 worth of business in such produce as livestock, wool, dairy products, vegetables, peanuts, poultry products, tobacco, grain and hay. In 1930 there were 35 marketing cooperatives with 15,000 members doing about $12,000,000 in business. Eighty-four cooperative purchasing associations in 1949 had 86,500 members, and did about $43,000,000 in business. In 1930 there were only 40 purchasing associations with about 10,000 members doing only about $3,700,000 in business. Service cooperatives in Virginia include telephone companies, REA loan associations, dairy testing and breeding associations, locker plants, lime grinding plants and others. In addition, there are cooperative production associations which deal in buying and use of pu...

September, 1950 Nation's Food Supply Seen At High Level Even if the Korean situation results in some increase in military procurement for food, supplies available to consumers are expected to continue at about the same high level as in the past two years, according to the Bureau of Agricultural Economics. Production of food this year is expected to total about the same as in 1949—38 percent more than the 1935-39 average and 20 percent above 1941. The supply situation for most livestock products is at least as favorable as last year and somewhat better than in the years before World War 11, BAE reports. Although current indications are that both the wheat and corn crops may be about 200 million bushels short of 1949 crops, carryover stocks are very large and supplies of cereal food products for the coming year will be plentiful, BAE states. Fruit crops are smaller than last year, but fairly large stocks of processed fruits and vegetables are available from the 1949 packs, BAE reports...

6 Meet Your Neighbor Ohio Farm Bureau Seeks Close City-Farm Accord By providing a bridge of understanding between city folks and their country cousins, 1,550 Farm Bureau Advisory Councils in Ohio will attempt to improve farm and urban relationships. These advisory groups, whose opinions on a farm program were heard throughout the nation recently, now will tackle the problem of getting the true facts about farm incomes and farm prob-' lems to city people. Farm Bureau families are now issuing invitations to city friends and relatives to visit them on their farms. They also will do what they can through schools, churches, labor and business organizations, social and government agencies, newspapers, and radio stations. At their council meetings the members will make sure they have their facts straight by studying the Farm Bureau Advisory Council Guide which this month discusses "Where Farm and City Meet." However, this is not a one-sided program. In exchange for the cooperation of urban...

September, 1950 Bright Future Foreseen For Feed Output in South Progress on research with feed crops in the South suggests that in the future Southern farmers may be able to grow enough feed to support three times their present livestock numbers, Dr. Robert M. Salter, Chief of the Bureau of Plant Industry, Soils and Agricultural Engineering of the U. S. Department of Agriculture said today in Raleigh, N. C* Speaking at the annual Farm and Home Week at North Caro- New Partner son, this land I leave to you to hold and cherish; manage it well so that your sons y and your sons' sons, may be proud to own it in their turn." Those might well be words for all men who love the land they live on. For deep in their hearts they want to keep their land in their family—want to leave every acre to oncoming generations in better condition than when they received it. Country people of today have become more dependent on the city; for many everyday commodities, for their fun and recreation, for much ...

8 Rejection of Brannan Plan Made 1949 4 Year of Decision,' Declares Fleming A recent proposal, endorsed by Secretary of Agriculture Charles F. Brannan to authorize the placing of price ceilings on farm commodities at price support levels "ought to prove beyond a question of doubt that whenever farmers get to thinking they can win at the Brannan plan 'shell game,' they'd better pin their money inside their underwear." So said Roger Fleming, Secre-tary-Treasurer of the American Farm Bureau Federation, at the conclusion of a recent speech before the county presidents' conference of the Tennessee Farm Bureau. He didn't pull any punches, nor did he mince any words in this speech entitled, "let's look at the record." "Agricultural historians are almost certain to describe 1949 as the year when American farmers experienced B-day. That's the day, April 7, 1949, when Secretary Brannan launched his campaign to sell the Brannan plan," he said. Mr. Fleming recalled that the campaign to jam the ...

4 Va. Beach Audience Hears Lynn "Leadership on a world basis requires international understanding and good will," John C. Lynn, Acting Director of AFBF's Department of International Affairs, told more than 100 agricultural leaders at the recent Virginia Leadership Training Camp, Virginia Beach. "We have made little progress in learning how to live with each other," Mr. Lynn said, citing as evidence the fact that there have been three world conflicts within the comparatively short span of 40 years. Communist Threat The AFBF representative warned against the insidious threat of Communism, emphasizing at the same time that the two great forces at work in the world today are Communism and Democracy. "These forces are in a battle for the minds of men, and the winner will be determined largely by the leadership ability present in the two groups." Mr. Lynn blamed the "ill-will" prevailing throughout the world on "the lack of understanding between nations." "The United States," he said, "ha...

October, 1950 United Wool Growers New Home Dedicated Harrisonburg Headquarters Is Completed (Continued from page 1) address of welcome, H. H. Hulbert, senior economist of the Farm Credit Administration, of Washington, stated that he had seen the United Wool Growers formed, saw it go to pieces and almost fail and then grow to its present stature where it has assets of $100,000 as compared to assets of 33 dollars in its early years. He declared that United's success just didn't "happen" but was founded on superior service rendered to the wool growers. Even when sheep numbers went down, he declared, the volume of wool handled by the United continued to increase. Praises Keithly Mr. Hulbert told how during the United's lean years, Mr. Keithly had put his own money into the organization to keep it going, adding that the manager had done his level best to make the cooperative a success. In closing, Mr. Hulbert warned the members of the United to keep the organization's feet solidly on the...

6 Farm Bureau Institute Draws Record Crowd Kansan Says FB Cannot Sell Itself Dr. Kenneth McFarland, Superintendent of Schools at Topeka, Kansas, told Farm Bureau workers at the Farm Bureau Institute that even a good product doesn't sell itself —it has to be sold. "Therefore", he said, "whether or not this country remains sold on Farm Bureau depends on how well you do your job." Taking as his text: "Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph" (Exodus 1 :8), Dr. McFarland said that just as there always will be new kings who "know not Joseph," so there will be new people who know not the Farm Bureau unless FB workers tell them about it. Even an institution as good as the public school system will be neglected unless taxpayers are continually reminded of the good work it is doing, said Dr. McFarland. He illustrated his point by telling of the late William Wrigley, who developed the chewing gum business as no one else had been able to. Riding on a train with some fri...
