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
“ TA .-v-v«A A

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
“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
“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
“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
“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.”
