I More lhan 26 million cows on three quarters of the nation's 5,859,000 farms produce the 57-bil- lioir quart yearly supply. Half of this supply is used as milk and cream for drinking and cooking; the other half for butter, cheese, ice cream and a myriad of products ranging from dry milk to plastics, textiles and Pharmaceuticals. The value of this annual output has grown to seven billion dollars, or double that of a few years ago. Milk is the largest single source ol farm cash income and was 15 per cent of all 1946 farm cash income, excluding government payment -- larger than cattle or hogs: two and a half times wheat; two and a half times cotton; one and a half times poultry and eggs; four times tobacco. One out of 15 U. S. families is dependent on milk for a livelihood. Milk and dairy products are economical foods containing vital components of the diet. Nutritionists and government authorities say the nation's health will benefit with high-level consumption. Total 1927 feed grain production is now estimated at 22 per cent less than the 1946 record. Fanners of Pleasant Valley school district met at the schoolhouse Wednesday night, Januaiy 14, and organised into a larm planning group. Paul Wilson, farm adviser; Dick Weise, Soil Conservation farm planner; end Charles Ream, Soil ton- scrvationist, were present at .tne meeting.

The district directors of the soil, conservation district have felt that visits to schools with films and talks on soil conservation and wild practices the meeting of the group will do a bolter job q f training than doing ! he job individually. Farmers Help Each. Other The group system in some districts has resulted in farmers helping each other and getting the job done in much less time than it would have taken if each farmer had worked alone. Erosion problems on farms are in many instances common to the adjoining farms and, with farmers working together, a much better job of control is done in many cases.
