Illinois PHONE--176--.-Mount Pulaski PAGE THREE FARM PROBLEMS FOR 1951 Farming is becoming more of a business---less of a Job. There- fore success in farming depends more on what the farmer does with his head--and le upon what he does with his hands. Of course there is still plenty of hard work to be done on farms. But the point is that the importance of back work is de- creasing, while the need for brain work is increasing. Much of this brain work is making decisions about buying and selling. Farmers of today must buy and sell a lot more things than did farmers of, say, 40 years ago. And there is p- portunlty for profit and danger of loss in every purchase and sale. The great increase In operat- ing costs is evident from long- time farm records. For example, in 1907 operating expenses on typical dairy farms averaged only $657. Forty years later ex- penses had Jumped to $9,248, or 14 times as much as in 1907. Farm income went up, too. But while farm expenses increas- ed 14 times, receipts Increased only nine times. In 1907 it took the returns from 39,000 pounds of milk to pay expenses. By 1947 it took 204,000 pounds--over five times as much--to pay the bills. These figures are from dairy farms in New York state, but costs on dairy farms In Illinois and other states have followed similar path Records for midwest general farms tell about the same story. Before World War I, operating expenses on a group of 100 In- diana farms averaged $770 a year. By 1945 costs had Jumped to $4,635, six times as much. In the earlier years 49 hogs would have paid the bills. By 1945 it required 160 hogs to do tle Job. The apparently greater In- crease In costs on dairy farms is due to the longer period covered i by the record. It begins earlier and carries more nearly up to date than the record for the gen- Sweeter T. Wiggers AUCTIONEER In business since 1955 Lincoln, m. R.R. 4 PHONE eral farm Thus it begins with prices at a lower level and car- ties them to a high point than the shorter record on the general farms. 4. Regardless of the emer- gency, we will not permit young children to operate or ride upon farm machinery. 5. We will be cautious in handling all farm animals. MAKE FARM SAFETY I RESOLUTIONS FOR '51 Get all work safely done In 1951. There's a New Year's resolution that all the family can help car. ry out for everybody's benefit. Making and keeping the New Year's resolutions by each mem- ber of the farm family is heart- ily recommended by the Illinois Farm and Home Safety Commit- tee. It is a means of assuring the happiness and well.being of farm people everywhere. [1 Here are some suggestions ] [ from the committee on New Year's resolutions for the farm family: 1. We will cheek our farm and farm home to locate and re- move hazards. 2. We will keep all shields and guards in place on machines 3. We will handle poisons and explosives earefully, keeping them well labeled and out of reach of children.
