The Bank ' s Calf Club Showed There Was Money in Raising Livestock [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1917
The Bank s Calf Club Showed There Was Money in Raising Livestock FOR five or six years past the First National Bank of Brighton has-been encouraging its customers to get better dairy , cattle . Through its instrumentality some 200 head have been brought in from Lake Mills and Elgin districts and we loaned some $ 15 , 000 to cover these importations . Through my personal efforts one of the big St . Louis dairies in the fall of 1914 erected a handsome two-story brick receiving station at a cost of over $ 5 , 000 . In six years—largely through our efforts—the number of Holstein cattle within a ra dius of five miles of Brighton had increased from seventy-five to over 800 . During the same period our silos increased from none to sixty-seven . However , we still had our problems . The calf club was designed to help solve some of these problems through the boys and girls on the farm . You can also reach the parent much easier through the child . We also wanted these boys and girls to have ...
The Banker and His Relations to His Customer and the Community [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1917
The Banker and His Relations to His Customer and the Community That cattle in the United States decreased from 51 million in 1907 to 37 million in 1915 is banker-farmer Information of value to all . By F . N . Shepherd Lewiston . Idaho This is a portion of an address delivered hefore the Banker-Farmer-Merchant meetings at the University of Idaho in January . The committee on agriculture of tbe Idaho Bankers association inspired these meetings . THE caricaturist and the muck raker have done much to create false notions about the banker . He has been lampooned and cartooned until some people think he has the cunning of the fox , the greed of the shark and the heart of a Shylock . As a matter of fact he is much like other folks—a little more cautious perhaps by reason of his responsibility ; and inclined to hesitate and deliberate before saying yes , because experience has taught him that human plans do not always mature with the same roseate tints which characterize their birth . Of t...
No Permanent , Prosperity from One Crop [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1917
No Permanent , Prosperity from One Crop THE financing of agriculture upon a single crap of cotton is as dangerous now as it was in the days when cotton was only five and six cents a pound . The truth is in all the world s history , on the whole habitable globe , in the range of years , or a decade , or a period , no people anywhere ever prospered enduringly on a single crop , nor by the sale of a single crop in the raw state . Let us not imagine that we can . perform the miracle of an enduring prosperity from one crop . The people of Dakota tried it with their wheat We , in the South , have tried it with cotton for fifty years and we are comparatively the most backward people in the United States . On the other hand the sum of the experience of mankind in all the ^ world s history , during the range of years , is that where agriculture follows the rule of selling- its raw products through meat animals on the hoof , there is prosperity to be found . There is ndt a neighborhood where ...
With Profitable Markets for Mutton and Wool , Farmers Should Keep Sheep [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1917
With Profitable Markets for Mutton and Wool , Farmers Should Keep Sheep THE Keep Sheep campaign of tbe Philadelphia Wool and Textile association was started a year ago . An investigation showed that tie condition of this industry was very -. - . satisfactory and alarming . For many years there had been a decided decrease in the farm flocks , and of late years this decrease is shown in the great northwestern territory . In view of the necessities of our population for meat and woolen clothing , it is imperative to change these conditions . There has been a lamentable lack of interest in this industry , and it is suffering from lethargy and decadence . In the farming sections this condition is due largely to former economic conditions . The decrease in the western or territory section is due to a restriction of the range , on account of the breaking up of the range into small sections for the farmers . During the period of decadence in our farming sections , the sheep industry had bee...
"All Aboard for the Banker-Farmer Excursion , " Says Wisconsin [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1917
All Aboard for the Banker-Farmer Excursion , Says Wisconsin WISCONSIN hankers and farmers are getting ready to attend the second annual banker-farmer excursion to the state college of agriculture at Madison on March 13 and 14 . Encouraged by the success of the first excursion last year , the committee on agriculture expects a much larger representation of bankers and farmers . An excellent idea of the purpose of tne excursion is afforded by these extracts from a circular letter issued to Badger bankers by the committee : Use your head in your business by teaching your farmer customer to use his in his business . Show him that a little more brain work upon his part will ease upon his muscle and bring more dollars for the same amount of effort Break down the barrier which has existed between town and country and get under your fanner friend s hide by showing him that yon are willing to give time and work to help him in every way you know how . Round up as big a bunch as you can get to...
"Something for Nothing ? " No [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1917
Something for Nothing ? No ONCE in a while a banker gains an erroneous idea of tbe theory of the cooperation which THE BAHKES-FAWH urges . Here is a comment by a western banker : I received copies of THE BANKEK -FASMEB . for a counle rrf years , and usually glanced over the publication . My impression was that there were many good features introduced into the magazine , but that the editor was subject to considerable criticism on account of presenting so many expensive ideas for the banks to carry out , in the way of giving high priced farm animals to communities , free of cost and a great many other ideas along the same lines . As a matter of fact , it was all the time giving something for nothing , or for an uncertain promise of good in the future . l Now neither this magazine , nor any leader of the banker farmer movement has . ever advocated the giving away of livestock . From time to time , there has been related the story of the importation of stock by banks but invariably the...
Bankers Aren ' t-Teaching Fanning [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1917
Bankers Aren t-Teaching Fanning IT might be inferred that bankers are teaching farming and attempting to tell farmers how to run their business , The real fact is that bankers are teaching themselves in their effort to induce farmers to absorb more knowledge and use more efficient methods . Bankers are not only receiving education and a knowledge which is necessary to the conduct of their business , but also inspiration to live for a better purpose , and they are learning that tbe unselfish things that they do are what makes life really worth living . Incidentally they are showing the pubHe that the banker s opinion on questions of public interest is valuable and worthy of the greatest considerationr * - J . R . Wheeler , Columbus , Wisconsin .

THE FARMER MUST PRODUCE MORE-THE BANKER MUST COOPERATE WITH HIM [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1917
THE FARMER MUST PRODUCE MORE-THE BANKER MUST COOPERATE WITH HIM THE duty of the American farmer in these critical times , when the United States is . skating on the . thin ice of ominous international relations and when the nation has come to a tardy sense of its dependence upon the producers of food , fortunately is patriotic as well as profitable . That duty is to plant and cultivate for maximum production every acre of available agricultural land in the country , with regard , of course , of safe , farming principles and the conservation of soil fertility . Food riots in the East , whether honest or merely manufactured demonstrations , have been the final wedge to drive home to everyone the nation s need of the farmer . Hitherto , as Dr . George E . Vincent has said , the discussion has been what the fanner needs of the nation . It is the duty of every available agency to cooperate with the fanner as intelligently , and helpfully as possible . No agency is • closer to the farmer ...
Fanners Should Have an Active Interest in the Development of Foreign Trade [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1917
Fanners Should Have an Active Interest in the Development of Foreign Trade CONSIDERING that , agricultural products in the fiscal year ending June . 30 , 1914 , one month before the European war began , comprised 47 . 8 per cent of all our exports , and 48 . 8 per cent of our imports , it would seem that the farmers should have the interests of our foreien trade closer at heart than anv other By B . F . Harris Pre * . First National Bank , Champaign , 111 . This is an excerpt-from an address before the annual- convention of the National Foreign Trade Council at Pittsburg Jan . 25 . A booklet containing the complete address will be sent on reauest . class of men . As a matter of fact , they are conspicuous for their , indifference . With the outbreak of the war the price of cotton faded away below the cost of production and the South faced ruin . This , all because so large a proportion of cotton goes abroad , because the market was suddenly cut off and partly cut off because we had ...
