Just how much docs the average
farmer make? The answer to this
puzzling question has long been
sought by farm experts as it is the
ultimate test of all systems of farm
management. It is simple enough
to culculate the ensh profits received
in the course of a year, but these do
not measuie the farmer's success
The farm supplies him with much
besides money with food, shelter,
and fuel. For these things the city
worker has to pay out a large part
of his wages. They must ther
foro, be included in any just estimate
of the farmer's income. In other
words, the city worker is paid ontirc
ly in cash, the fanner is paid part
ly in cash, partly directly in the nec-
cessities of life.
To obtain fuller knowledge of the
value of this direct contribution from
the farm the department has recent
ly concluded an incstigation which
included -138 farm families divided
nmong 10 states in different sections
of the country. (United States Do
partmcnt of Agriculture Farmers'
Bulletin 035.) Tho investigators
found that on these farms the cost
of maintaining each grown person on
the average was $170 a year. This
sum was composed of the following
Dairy products $21
Poultry and eggs 12
Wood and Coa! 13
House rent 28
Of this sum only about 22 per cent
wsa paid out in cash. The remain
dor was furnished by the farm, not
in the form of money, bus in those
things for which money would have
been exchanged. The extent to
which a farm can thus bo made eolf
sustaining, made to supply the v ants
af the family that lives upon it with
out resorting to buying and selling,
is indicated by the conditions in the
particular area of Nortli Carolina
included in the investigation.
The investigators found that in this
area the average the annual value
of the food, fuel, oil and shelter en
joyed by tho farm family was $505
Of this sum the farm furnii.hcd dir
ectly $129, leaving only $'6 to be
Food was, of course, the principle
item. This amounted to $401.93, of
which $330.G5, or 82.3 per cent was
raised on the farm. If it had not
been, indeed, for such articles as tea,
coffee, sugar, salt and other groceries
which it was impossible to produce
at home, these farms might be called
actually self-sustaining. Of the an
imal products consumed meat, poul
try milk eggs cheese, etc. 97.3 per
cent were home grown; of the fruits
98 per cent and of the vegetables 90.1
per cent. Of tho other articles con
sumed however, and classed together
is groceries, only 21 per cent was
raised on the farm. The grocery
bill therefore was tho largest cash
This was even more apparant in
other sections where the farms were
less nearly self-sustaining than in
this particular area of North Caro
lina. The bulk of the groceries was
Uways bought but the total quantity
consumed depended to a great extent
upon the quantity of mdmal products
and vegetables raised on the farm.
Where these abounded the consump
tion of groceries diminished. From
this it would seem that an obvious
way to effect an important saving in
expenses is to raiso more vegetablo
and animal products on the farm.
Whothor it is better to cut down ex
penses in this way or to increase re
ceipts by concentrating attention on
cash crops is one of the great prob-
ems in farm management, tho ans
wer to which in each individual case
depends upon local conditions. In
tho past however many farmers have
not realized tho existanco of tho al-
ornntivo. The two other imnortnnt
items in tho cost of inaintainance arc
house rent and labor. Both of these
is a common cror to omit in entim
is a common error to ommit in estini-
ating the farmer's income. Sinco
tho house usually goes with tho farm
and tho labor is performed by mom-
uirs or tho family, both aro taken for
granted, This howovor is obvious-
unfair. In tho recent investiga
tion, for example, the investigators
found that SVifi was a fair imiinl

tho fnrm furnishes directly in food, in
fuel, in shelter and in rent is an im
portant part of1 the families income.
On the. other hand, it must be rem
cmbcrecd that the farmer has capital
invested in his business, the interest
on which must bo eaerned before he
can truly be said to be making money.
In the proper relation of the three
afctors interest on the investment,
cash receipts and direct income from
the farm lies the secret of success
