FARMERS MUST UNITE
Through studies and investigations of the farm prob
lem one conclusion is inevitably reached, and that is the
farmers of the country must learn well the lesson of co
operation before they can expect to receive the best possi
ble returns for their labors.
After many decades of attempted organization under
various plans and under various names, the fact remains
that the farmers are yet the most backward of all major
groups in effective co-operation. All the farm organiza
tions together represent but a relatively small percentage
of the total number of those engaged in agriculture.
It may be that this can be partially accounted for by
the distances which separate them, making it more diffi
cult to get together frequently for a discussion of their
problems. But with automobiles and better roads this
handicap is not so great as formerly. The principal hind
rance to effective organization is evidently the lack of
interest among them and the tendency of each to shift
Progressive farmers realize that marketing is one of
their most vital problems, and one which it is impossible
to solve without united effort. But until the great body
of farmers grasp he benefits which strong co-operative
marketing organizations can bring to them, the entire ag
ricultural industry will labor under a severe handicap.
In order to obtain the fullest measure of relief,
whether through legislation, better production methods or
co-operative marketing, farmers must unite, as other
groups do, for mutual protection and advancement.
