Calif.—(NBA). — Tecn-aye youths in southern California's, rural communities are gel-ling practical training in cattle and credit. When the boy.5, all members of the Future Farmers of America, become full-fledged cattlemen 10 year.s from now they will have a thorough grounding in bank credit requirements and the real problems of raising stock for profit. Today, a group of 3 r > youths are investing in baby beef, averaging 375 pounds each. After a year of feeding and care (in niter-school hours) the Aligns Feeder calves will hit the .scales at, an estimated 950 pounds eacn and will be auctioned off. Fullerlon High School agi\;ul- ture instructor Herbert Stilt arranged financing with Uoyd Mlk- ^kejsoii, ^nanager of the Bank of Ah5crtca"T6rancH 'aT~FTi!lstT6rf r ~i-';il individual financial responsibility remains with the boys themselves. Mikkelson talked to each of the bo.vs. explained bank interest rates, procedure on notes and gave each an explanation on bank regulations. Together the banker and the prospective cattle buyer went, over ! the plans for cattle raising and ' discussed ho w large a loan Ihc boy needed and could carry. The youthful cattlemen signed individual notes for $110 for each -•alf they bought. There were no co-signers. Mikkelson says the bank is interested in seeing that the boys buy belter slock and understand hoa- banking 1.5 done by cattlemen. In addition to the cattle loans, money has been advanced tor raising chickens, rabbits and other slock. Not all the boys gel loans, and those who do don't always get as much money as they want. The prospective borrowers must prove to the bank's satisfaction that Iheir plans are good financial risk*. So far the bank has loaned a lo- lal of S!.5-millif ln ( () teen-agers interested in commercial ranching. The average loan has been $44, and every loan has been repaid. Read Courier News Want Ads.
