Clear» ater country to consider more 1 seriously the matter of diversified farming as a means of making farm- , ing more profitable During the past three years when wheat sold J for good prices and livestock, be cause of low prices paid for fat stock and the exhorbitant paid for feed, prices was not profitable, the farming operations developed tirely into a wheat tanning propo sition. Now that the price of wheat like all other farm produce is ing hack to normal or pre-war basis, the farmer is wondering what to do and how to plan his future opera tions. <-n coni Just what the price of wheat will be in the next few years is, at this *ime. more or less a guess with the best informed, but U is to be ex pected that the price of wheat will be somewhere near what it was be fore the war. It is hoped that im proved'marketing systems will ena ble the farmer to get better prices for his wheat, but the question Is, will the farmer be wheat profitably on small farms con sidering the present value of his land. able to raise In my opinion there never was a Bme when the greatest profits on farms from 100 to 12u acres in size were derived by straight wheat farm ins and with the present value of land wheat farming will be still mor e difficult and diversified farm ins more profitable. fanning does not mean farmer will quit raising wheat en tirely, it simply means that he will i down Hie acerage of wheat and increase the acerage of other crops. »o that he will be In a position to | keep more livestock, ao more of thej work on the farm himself; grow i profitable crops on his summer fal i° w land and increase the fertility and productiveness of the land.
