Making the Fanner a Business Man [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1917

Making the Fanner a Business Man By H . L . Russell Deta Wisconsin College of Agriculture M ODERN efficiency rests in large measure on the elimina tion or control of uncertainties . Any method which will enable definite plans to replace guess work will help to reduce mistakes , and mistakes are always costly . The manufacturer , through his cost accounting systems , has standardized his business so he knows definitely the cost of his product at each step in its production . The banker has his product—his deposits—to sell and he should know when he sells them to a customer whether he is sure to get his pay for the same . It is therefore just as important that he know the financial standing and ability of the farmer to whom he loans his money as it is to know whether the merchant whose bills he discounts is in position to meet his loans when due . Some day—h is coming faster than many people imagine—the farmer is going to handle his business like any other business man The more progre...

How Uncle Sams Farmers are Cashing in Millions on Their County Agents UNCLE SAMS farmers are cashing in on their investments in county agents—cashing in big—so big that even if you were the most gullible investor in the . world you would rapidly kick out of your office the get-rich-quick artist who made bold to promise you only a fraction of the per cent of dividends which the agents have paid on the sums which their communities have invested in them . The farmers who have been far-sighted enough to put a little stake in a county agent and to cooperate with him have reaped returns which have meant more money in the bank for them . The agents have increased yields , improved livestock , prevented losses from the ravages of insects plant diseases and livestock diseases , maintained and restored soil fertility and brought about better marketing of farm products . It s a big story—this cashing ^ in . It means , that the county agent has made good . He has stood the acid test It means th...

The County Agent is Bringing Safe Farming and Bigger Yields to the South [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1917

The County Agent is Bringing Safe Farming and Bigger Yields to the South AN amazing story of increased yields which made millions of dollars for southern farmers is told in the results of county agent demonstration work in the South reported by the United States Department of Agriculture . In 1915 demonstrations in field crops were conducted on nearly a million and a half acres of land by 110 , 000 farmers . Upon these fields the yields , as a rule , were 100 per cent above the average for the region ! To increase yields 100 per cent on this expanse of land meant millions of dollars in the pockets of southern farmers , as well as an obiect-lpssmi in farming to others . Some idea of what county agent work means to the South in dollars and cents alone is given by a consideration of these facts : In 1915 over 20 , 000 farmers , employing demonstration methods on 218 , 000 acres , produced an average yield of 1 , 180 pounds of seed cotton per acre . Figuring lint cotton at ten cents per...

Tobin IT all started when the Farmer and the Banker were talking about the community . The Farmer was president of the county farmers institute and the Banker was a farmer , too .

That makes about twenty county agents in this state , said the Farmer . I wonder— I wonder , too , said the Banker . I ve heard our farmers talking about the county agent plan —it isn t as if it is a positively new idea . Yes , and we re entitled tn ers are pretty hard-headed , he said . They won t take up with every new fad and . I don t blame them . But most of our best farmers have heard about the county agent idea for a long time . They don t get together...

In fact , it is just like many other days of many other farm women . In that particular day , my busy friend put out a big wash , baked bread , cooked the meals for hungry corn huskers and then went , in the afternoon , to a meeting of ber country club . It was she who told me later , We want an aristocracy of real country folk . There you have two faces of the medal . On one side are some of the jobs a farmer s , wife must turn out in one day—and turn them out herself , mind you , for hired help is scarcer than blue diamonds . On the other side is the ideal of American counry life . I am even prone to prophecy that it is one of the great purposes of America s civilization . These two faces are curiously necessary to each other . The extent to which we shall achieve our goal hang...
