DtrAttMCNT Ol COMMCICI fO« KJI This picture of farm prices shows that the dollars you invest in farm machinery today go farther than the dollars you spend for other things. For, in spite of steel prices that climbed over 60% and factory wages that increased over 90%, the price of farm machinery was held down to about 44% over the 7939 ley,I. In the meantime, farm labor costs stepped up over 200% . . . and the prices of such things as livestock feed multiplied, too. These are things that you had to buy every month . . . even though you found the price tag going higher and higher. The situation today is that the cost of crop- producing machinery is on a comparatively low level. This is shown by the dash line in the chart above. It is easy to see that the prices of other things would have to take quite a tumble to make them as good a buy as the labor-saving, crop-saving farm machinery that you find on your dealer's floor today. Don't be misled by a few dramatic cuts in other items. Remember, farm equipment has been and is today your best buy for your money. Be able to recognize the importance of being equipped to care for and to harvest the crop that you depend upon for this year's profits.
