COUNTY AGENT PLAN
OF ADULT WORK (Note This information is fur- niahed the Democrat by representa tives of the Oklahoma Wheat Grow ers Association, which has been or ganized and chartered,and the Kan sas Association is being organized along the same lines.)) (a) The main problems in Okla s homa on which County agents will work during the year 1921 are: field ' crops, live stock, special farm prob . lems and organization work. J The field crop work will consist of , field crop demonstrations for the pur pose of stimulating economic pro duction, seed improvement, the pro- per use of commercial fertilizers and Jivatphfltif prnn rntntinn thnf will fur. nish the farmer with plenty' of food and feed and at the same time tend to conserve the-fertility of the soil. The live stock work will be con fined mostly to breeding and feeding of cattle, hogs, and sheep with the idea of improving the quality of breeding animals in the state, and learning to feed them in such a way as to secure the maximum amount of meat or milk for the value of the feed consumed. The special work of the County Agent will consist of practical les sons in soil building, terracing, farm mechanics and the erecting of farm buildings, etc. i The program for organization work will be for the County Agent to co-operate and work with all the general organizations that are estab lished In the county, to promote and foster -all commodity organizations tnat have lor their purpose the im provement or co-operative market ing of live stock or farm crops, and to become identified with the County Free Fair Association, the Township Free Fairs, Community Clubs, and other similar organizations that have for their sole purpose the upbuilding of agricultural and rural conditions in the county. (b) The field crop work will be conducted by plating a number of field demonstrations of the crop to be improved in the respective com munities that need the lesson to be given. These demonstration plats to be needed, fertilized and cultivated according to the instructions of the County Agent At stated times in the development of this crop the County Agent will call ' a meeting of the community at one or more of the demonstration farms for the purpose f giving the neighbors a chance to study the effects that have been brought about by the methods used on the particular crop. At these community meetings "tne County Agent is often assisted by a racialist from the college, who may be able to give more specific infor mation than the County Agent, es pecially when the demonstration is along seed improvement lines or in volves the production of crop that must show certain qualities to sat sfy market? conditions. 1 The County Agen may also assist the farmers of the community mater ially by attending their community meetings and giving lectures on the crop problems that need improve ment, during the winter period when there are no farm activities. The live stock breeding . work is conducted by encouraging the use of 1 Buy A Woodstock j Typewriter .

The County Agent j will also promote and foster a Pure Breeders ' Association if there are enough breeders in the county to make the work effective. ! The feeding phase of the livestock work will be conducted by demon strations with dairymen for milk pro duction and with feeders of cattle hogs and sheep for meat production. This work is carried on for the sole purpose of producing milk and meat as economically as possible, and the County Agent nearly always uses the specialist from the college to assist him in this, work. A very accurate account of results is kept on these feeding demonstrations so that the information can be furnished to all feeders of livestock in the county. The County Agent is also called upon to conduct special demonstra tions such as: ' terracing, soil build ing, combating diseases, giving les sons in . livestock sanitation, and helping stamp out contagious di seases among livestock. These demonstration are conduc ted either by concrete example as in the case of terracing; or lectures, practical lessons or instructions as in the case of combating plant diseases, livestock sanitation, or livestock di seases. , In all this special work the County Agent is able to secure the services of a specialist from the col lege to assist in this kind of demon stration work in his county. The policy of the Extension Di vision is to co-operate with all the general farm organizations by help ing them in every way possible to solve the agricultural problems in which they are interested and all the County Agents in the state are co-operating very closely with the general farmers' organizations along the lines outlined, by the Extension Division. ' The County Agent in Oklahoma is by law identified with the County Free Fair Association as he is the one man who has the power to call an election of a Free Fair Board in the various townships of his county, and, therefore, when the Board is elected, he is expected to co-operate with them very closely in order to make the Free fair a success. He is also closely identified with the Town ship Free Fain and. the Community organizations that are organized to promote the agricultural welfare of the neighborhood. , Aside from the activities men tioned above, it is found necessary for the County Agent to maintain an office and have a regular office day for the purpose of doing hi? reg ular office work and to receive call ers from over the county, who want to confer with him on various prob- i lems that they feel cannot be fully explained by a bulletin on the aub ! ject or a letter. In fact, the exper ' ience of the past shows that the ; County Agent 'who has one regular : office day in the week is able to ren- der better service than he can if he ; hasv no regular office day yid does his office work at odd times and Hays not suitable for travel. ! (c) The plans for improving the efficiency of the County Agents in clude the following: 1) They have the direct supervis ion of an efficient District Agent, who is familiar with all the plans and L'llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllL'lllllllllllt B m g it POSTS!
