THE FARM BUREAU
AND ITS FUNCTION
Definite Survey of Com
munity and Handling of
All Its Problems
Membership—Look around over the
county and .select the farmers to
whom everyone points as the most
prosperous, progressive and well-to
do. List those who come under the
class of "live" farmers. They are,
almost all of them, Farm Bureau
members. They are units in the
membership of the county organiza
tion that is helping every family in
the county to reap the benefit of
It is this membership that makes
the county Farm Bureau possible—
and profitable. Each member should
have something definite to accom
plish in the organization. His inter
est must be an enthusiastic and
personal one. His regard for the
organization of which he is a mem
ber and which is working in his in
terests should be one of active par
There are now almost 2000 county
farm bureaus in the United States.
Many of them are strong and are
- accomplishing things of which a
much larger group could be proud.
Others, perhaps, because of faulty
organization, perhaps because of lack
of interest, have not thrived with
the same active usefulness. But in
every case, whether the organization
is healthy and functioning or wheth
er it is half-heartedly going about
its work, the result can be traced to
Program—A definite program of
work is essential. Map out some
thing to do. It is the function of
the county Farm Bureau to serve
farmers, and the farmers, to be
successful, must conduct their farm
ing business to bring a steady source
of income. Let them map out our
sources of revenue something like
Livestock—Hogs, cattle, poultry,
dairy, horses, sheep.
Grains—Corn, wheat, oats, barley,
Fruit —Apples, strawberries, mel

heading of livestock, we would have

Having listed the sources of in
come in a given locality and the
problems with which it has to con
tend, the next step is the planning
of a definite organization. Every
member of the county organization
should be on an active committee.
Each project should be in the hands
of a committee large enough to in
sure its success. Each of the gen
eral committees listed should be
further divided into sub-committees
in charge of specific problems such
of securing and maintaining a large
membership rests on this committee.
Publicity—lt is the duty of this
committee to keep the membership
alive to all the activities of the or
ganization, both county, state and
Finance —Collections and county
homes, women's extension program,
better schools, boys' and girls' work.
Marketing—A study of buying and
selling problems. Transportation.
Legislative—Adjusting taxes, equi
table distribution of taxation bur
dens, better schools, better roads,
proper representation of farmer's
When such an analysis has been
made and a program decided upon,
leaders from the membership will
step to the front and assume the
duties which best adapt themselves
to their respective abilities. An or
ganization without leaders is handi
