Hamburg businessmen and area farmers were told "Monday night lhaL they already have the means and the materials to keep their young people at home, and working working in local induustry- The startling: statement \ras made at the annual farmer-business farmer-business banquet at the high school by Jack Cowing, KMA farm service service directorCowing: directorCowing: had reference to a new* concept; in grain and livestock growing and feeding currently being pushed in the St_ Joseph, area* Citing the obvious need for Industry of some kind to hold present population and encourage our young people to remain at home after high school graduation- Cowing said there are" 30,000 cities and towns searching for industries. There are only 6000 new industries started or re-located re-located each year, said Cowing; leaving four out of five towns still searching. Overlooked He put forth the idea that perhaps Midwest farming conm --it- les have been overlooking their very best to build up local and give our young people a living here at home. The idea is to go into vertical integration instead of the current horizontal trend. Cowing explained explained that the object should be to make present faxm acreages pay far more money, instead of seeking- more land to make more income. At present the best prospect this, says Cowing, is to go into competition with -western cow calf ranchers on a dollar for basis. Citing statistics that land worth §50 an acre' in western -Nebraska supports a cow and for every 20 acres, Cowing- that proper management in this .-area -can bring__^cow-calf '-ground down to 2 acres."lf this "can"be done, he says, local- fee'ders "can double'their per-acre income. Cow-Calf Factories Midwest farmers must start their own cow-calf factories, then feed them right on through to choice and prime condition, taking- taking- for themselves the profit on the calf, orr" the feeder, and on the finished steer. He believes sirch a program offers offers small town areas the best hope of interesting 1 young 1 people to stay at home, by creating paying "jobs" on the farms. It takes a good job of management from start to finish, says Gowing. Gowing. With work and care there is reason to believe average-size farms in this area can keep the young- people from moving off the cities by: 1. Creating: enough income to interest them. 2. Create enough new jobs, on the farm and in town, to support them. This is Industry Gowing pointed out that this type of operation is definitely industry rather than farming-, although although farmers will do the producing producing on farm ground. On a pure ^economic basis, he said it costs about $10,000 to educate a youngster through high school today. When the youngster youngster has to leave this area, to employment, that money is gone, plus the estimated S300.000 the graduate will make in income spend elsewhere during his productive productive years- Improve What's Here His final theme was "Improve what we have. If we want to save our crop of young people, we must work with what is already already here. A prospering and growing- cow-calf-steer economy "would go far toward raising in* comes, creating new jobs, and stop the current financial drain and population loss." Local businessmen were guests of the farmers, who have taken part in the winter series of farm classes. The Monday dinner closed the school for another
