Farmers and livestock raisers who are seeking production credit loans are co-operating in making up budgets of their requirements for the 1934 season, according to W. T. Frazer, secretary-treasurer of the Mason City Production Credit association. "Heretofore many farmers would ask for a lump sum of money to finance their crop operations," Mr. Frazer, secretary- treasurer, said, "with the result that many of them either underestimated their needs and fell short during the crop season or borrowed too much money and wasted it." By completing a budget, showing the exact needs for the coming crop season, many farmers have discovered that they could get along with less funds than they first thought. Inasmuch as production credit loans are based upon the liquid security of the livestock and the crops, the budget plan gives farmers an opportunity to know exactly the amount of money they are going to need to handle their livestock or raise their crops. By this plan, a farmer who may require 5400 for the crop season can get his loan approved for that amount and then draw the money out as it is- needed. "The advantage of this," accord- ing to Mr. Frazer, secretary treasurer, "is that the interest does not start until the money is called for but the borrower has the assurance that the cash is ready for him when he needs it." Mr. Frazer reports that many fanners will avail themselves of production credit for the 1934 season and that many ranchers are planning on changing their loans over to production credit as soon as possible.
