Lived at Home Evidence that PSA families in this county have mode good records in carrying out n practical live-at-home program Is seen in the report. It reflects that 152 of the 152 families participating in the program had gardens, produced poultry and eggs for home i use, 135 produced an adequate supply of milk for home use and 140 produced pork and beef for | home use. Homemakers produced 81,982 quarts of canned vegetables, fruits and meat during the year, or about 97 quarts for every member of tlie family. In addition, 24,785 pounds of cured meat were preserved. About eight out of every ten farmers produced nnd stored ample feed to winter the livestock. Better Farming "Practices W'' Substantial . progress was made in the adoption of sound farming and conservation practices during the year. Of the 4750 acres farmed in the county by the FSA borrowers. 1800 acres of this land grew some legume either inter-planted with another crop or by themselves. 1400 acres of inter-planted corn and beans were turned under. The 152 farmers used improved field seed of a recommended variety. There were 132 farmers In the county who participated in cooperative loans which are financed by the FSA to permit farmers of limited means to participate In services that would otherwise be beyond their financial reach. Cooperative services operating in this county include a cooperative medical and health association project, a cooperative school transportation project for the families located at Marie, Ark., and cooperative buying of the necessary canning supplies nnd pressure cookers.
