Farmers Are Leading
In "Speeding Up" Production
WHILE many industries are showing decreased per capita production. farming?
the greatest of all American industries?shows increased per capita production.
In actual volume, .American farmers produced more wheat. more meat and more milk
in 1919 than ever before. Not only did the crops grown during the past year aggregate in
money value three times the annual average value immediately preceding the war, but this
great wealth has been produced with less hired labor.
As a result of both greater production and higher prices, the buying power of the
farmer is greatly increased. But the immensity of this buying power is overlooked by
many who have products for which the farmer is an immediate customer.
