Co-operative Farming Benefits.
President Finley, of the South ern Railway Company, referring to the interest being manifested in co-operation in agricultural communities in the Southeast, said : “ The subject of co operation, in all its many possible applica tions, is one that is attracting •world wide attention at the pres ent time. The extent to which the co-operative principle has al ready been developed is illustrat ed by the fact that the sessions of the International Co-operative Alliance in Glasgow, Scotland, during the month of August were attended by six hundred dele gates representing over twenty million members of one hundred and thirty thousand societies in twenty-four countries, and in opening the Congress, as its Honorary President, Lord Grey, the British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, spoke of it as epdeavoring to create an inter national co-operative common wealth. “ TA .-v-v«A A xu xy it} xioiuuu) uuu other European countries, and to some extent in the United States, it has been demonstrated that there is a wide field for the suc cessful development of co-opera tive associations in agricultural communities. “While there are other lines in which co-operation has been car ried on successfully and profita bly, that to which I believe speci al attention may well be given by Southeastern farmers is the organization of co-operative sell ing associations. Such associa tions may be made particularly useful in the handling of fruits and vegetables, the profitable production of which is dependent in large measure upon successful marketing. “For the accomplishment of f the best results in the distribu tion of products among markets it is important that a large num ber of producers shall unite in a single association or that there shall be effective co-operation between a number of local asso ciation. “Another matter, the import % ance of which cannot be overes timated, is that a co-operative marketing organization which exercises effective control over the grading and packing of pro ducts can build up a valuable reputation for the producers of its locality. When buyers learn that the grading and packing of any particular association may be relied upon absolutely, its goods are sought out and its name or trade-mark becomes an asset of value to each member of the as sociation. Another advantage is that, handling a larger volume of business, the association may find it profitable to devote more attention, not only to securing general market information, but also to looking into the Compara tive arlvonfurroa rloalinrr tvitVi different buyers in the same market than can be done by in dividual producers. Its larger volume of business also tends to increase competition among buy •ers for its products and enables it, in many instances, to ship in carload quantities. “A most important matter in : connection with the profitable crowing of perishable fruits and vegetables is the provision of some effective means to take ■ care of the culls and of all sur plus production that the market will not absorb in a fresh state. This may be done by the estab lishment of canneries, evaporat- j ing plants, and plants for the manufacture of cider and vine gar. The co-operative market ing association may very proper ly interest itself in securing the establishment of plants of this kind to take care of the culls and the surplus production of its members. “The activities of a co-opera tive selling agency may also, in some instances, be extended to matters connected with produc tion. It may, for example, un dertake the buying of the seeds used by its members, lookin into their purity and germinativ qualities and insuring the prc duction of the same varieties b all members of the organization “The managements of th Southern Railway Company an its associated companies, in main taining a corps of market agent for the purpose of bringing pro ducers in the territory traverse by their lines into relations witl buyers, have recognized th value of co-operation. The worl done by these agents is, in itself entirely co-operative. They ar familiar with the plans of organ ization and methods of operatioi of successrul co operative selling organizations and are ready a all times to give information t producers who may wish to or ganize co-operative association for the marketing of agricultura and horticultural products. “One of the fields in which cc operation among producers ha been most effective is in the hand ling of dairy products, eggs am poultry through co-operativ creameries. There are now ii the Southeastern Ssates som highly successful organization of this kind, as an examnle o which I may cite the Catawb Creamery at Hickory, N. C There have been failures of cc operative creameries in th Southeast as well as in other lo calities. Such failures may usu ally be attributed to one of tw causes. Either they have beei established in advance of the as surance of a sufficient supply o cream to insure their profitabl operation or they have had in efficient management. It i fundamentally essential to th success of a co-operative cream ery that it shall be able to rel; upon an ample and regular sup ply of cream and that it shal have capable management. Unti these two things can be assured it will be better for the farmer of any community to sell thei cream or to convert it into butte on their farms. “The importance of efficien management in co-operative en terprises -of all kinds cannot b too strongly insisted upon. Th success of such an organizatioi cannot be assured by a numbe of farmers getting together am simply agreeing to co-operate along certain lines. The man agement must be placed in the hands of a reliable man, either ; member of the association or ai employee, who has business ca pacity and who will insist upoi conducting its operations strictl: in accordance wil^h busines: principles and keeping its ac counts with as much accuracy and care as those of a manufac turing or commercial corporation By giving proper attention t( these important matters and b: studying carefully the method: by wmcn success nas beer achieved by others, I believe tha the farmers of many localities in the Southeast will find it ad vantageous to organize co-oper ative associations.” Wanted—A car load of poultry anc eggs each week till October 1st.
