Buchanan President of the Board "I'm gonna be a farmer like my dad!" Well. . . not quite! This boy may stay on the farm all right, but there'll be many changes. Sons don't farm like their fathers did in this period of rapid change. In his father's lifetime, for instance, bigger and better machinery has given him the power to farm more land in less time, with less labor. Electricity has taken over many of the backbreaking, time-consuming chores. New chemicals give him powerful weapons in the fight against insects and diseases. New ferti- . lizers boost crop yields. Cooperatives have played an important part. One kind of cooperative supplies electricity; another helps with credit problems. Purchasing cooperatives buy chemicals, gasoline, oil, feed and other supplies at more favorable prices. Marketing cooperatives help the farmer get more for what he sells. Insurance cooperatives provide lowest cost protection against hazards. Cooperatives help the farmer benefit from change; turn progress into profits, The advantages of employing cooperatives to get jobs done will belong to the son as they have to the father. That will not change . .. and the future is brighter because of it. • FARMERS ELEVATOR CO., Swea City Larry Peters, Mgr, FENTON CO-OP ELEVATOR Curtis Uira, Mgr. IRVINGTON CO-OP ELEVATOR E, F.
