The AAA farm record book which will be furnished free of charge to all farmers signing adjustment contracts, provides blanks for keeping the necessary figures on production and sale or disposal of basic commodities such as corn, hogs and wheat, said Mr. Galloway, it does not, however, provide for a complete record of all commodities. The AAA book does not include forms for the analysis and summary of the farm business which makes it possible for the operator to compare his business with the state average prepared each year by the extension service. The Iowa Farm Record Book, available from the extension services, provides for such summaries and also shows the net cash Income, net farm income and other measures of profit. Blanks for net worth statements showing the inventory values of the farm and its supplies and equipment at the beginning and end of each year are ln» ducted in the Iowa Farm Record book. This is an important measure'of the financial progress of the farm, said Mr. Oalloway. He suggested that a complete farm record will not only provide the data needed in connection with ttie corn- hog program but will also help in making assessor and crop reports.
