Carries Message of Better
Farming and Home Making
to Remote Parts of State
During the pnst year the Extension
Department of the'College of Agricul
ture of the University of Kentucky lias
served in a most effective way, thru
short courses In agriculture oud home
economics, by means of visits upon the
farm and In the name by county and
home demonstration agents, thru
boys' and girls' clubs of various kinds,
adult community organizations and
field demonstrations, more than 300,
000 people of Tennessee.
The Division of Extension has been
an active Integral and organized pari
of the University since 1014 and there
Is probably no force that Is of so wide
a benxjflt or Is giving greater returns
to more people of the state than this
organization with Its corps of able and
effleient men and women agents and
specialists.
Rural progress In Tennessee is writ
ten In every line of the annual report
of the Division prepared by Charles A.
KefTer, director. It Is the purpose of
the extension service to carry directly
to the farms and the homes of the
country and secure the adoption in
practice of the best available ' Infor
mation regarding agriculture and
home economics thru county agents,
who deal with farm problems; home
demonstration agents who deal with
the problems of the home; club lead-'
ers who carry on work with young
people, and specialists In the various
brunches of agriculture and home eco
nomics. - The charge sometimes made that
the countyagent Is a "white collar
farmer," meaning that he does not get
out among the fanners In the field, but
spends most of his time in the office,
can not be held against Tennessee
agents. The annual report shows that
75 per cent of their time was spent
In the field and only 25 per cent In
their offices. Statistics are not always
Interesting, but the following, showing
the accomplishments of the agents,
will convince the most skeptical thnt
county agents' worli Is worth while:
In performing their duties of tho
year the agents visited 9,858 demon
strators, 6.364 co-operators, 16,337
farmers not directly co-operating with
them, 4,3K) business men, 6,777 boys'
club members, making a total number
of "visits by them 43,627. They trav
eled 276,578 miles ; had 22,882 personal
calls, 17,034 calls by telephone and as
sisted In 3,313 farmers' meetings which
werer held under their auspices or Di
vision of Extension. They addressed
4.7S3 meetings, with a total attendance
of approximately 300,000 and conduct
ed 602 field meetings, with the total
attendance of 11,957. They wrote
27,123 ofliciiil letters,"prepared for pub
lications 2,0-15 articles, sent out 400,000
circular letters inkI distributed 00,255
United States Department of Agricul
ture bulletins, 25,138 bulletins or cir
culars for the State College of Agri
culture and the Division of Extension
and visited 2,321 schools to Interest
them in agricultural work. More than
6,830 farmers are now practicing fall
plowing-; 4,580 selecting seed and 2,305
are growing improved seed for sale.
As evidence that this work Is of
money value to the fanner, enabling
him by the improved methods put Into
practice to pay off mortgages and open
bunk accounts, agents report that over
000 farmers have opened bank ac
counts for the first time since begin
ning demonstration work, and l,08f
have been able to Increase their bank
deposit. Store than 1,000 farmers
have paid off their mortgages on their
farms since starting demonstration
Work and 68 per cent of the farmers
co-operating with the agents are de
creasing their. Indebtedness, 65 .per
cent are showing Increased Interest in
agricultural meetings find 66 per cent
are showing n desire to study the farm
business and progress. Labor saving
devises have been placed in 5-10 homes
of co-operators and demonstrators as
result of agents' work. Some of tho
more noticeable effects of fanners,
homes and family as resulting from
the work of the agents Is the building
of better homes, barns, breeding of
better livestock, attendance at fairs,
short courses and conventions, taking
of more papers and magazines, pur
chase of automobiles, improved roads,
installing of water and light systems
in the home and providing of home
amusement.
Some of- the outstanding pieces of
work done by the agents demonstrates
the value of the work.
The 7,611 acres of com grown under
methods advocated by county agents
In 1919 produced an average of 46
Bushels per acre ; the average yield in
these same counties was 24 bushels
per acre, Which shows that the yield
was practically doubled due to demon
stration methods. This applies equal
ly to cotton, tobacco and small grain.
The agents Influenced 874 farmers to
select seed corn in the fall for next
year's crop f amount of seed being se
lected amounting ' to 9,373 bushels.
They directly influenced 4,093 and in
directly 8,983 farmers to use better
methods In growing corn.
The tvork done with livestock Is also
convincing, agents reporting 1,431 men
owning piire-bredlvesfock. Thsy at-
steted !n" placing 1M community sires
and 231 buyers of pure-bred Ufetfook.
More than 800 brood mares were
brought into comities" due to the ln
ifluence of the agents. Twenty pure
hrt,1 stallions hnd 14 nure-bred jack
have been placed in counties sine
demonstration work was started. They
have influenced the farmers of their
county to purchase 64 pure-bred dairy
bulls and 299 dairy cows or heifers in
twenty-four counties. Agents report
2,725 cows tested at their Instance, and
1,100 fanners have been induced to
feed a "better balanced ration to their
stock. Ovtr 5,000 head of beef cattle
h ive been fed and cared for according
to methods advocated by agents.
Forty agents report 864 pure-bred
boars and 1,216 pure-bred sows or
gilts brought into their counties due
to their influence and 489 farmers
have started new herds.
Twenty agents report 168 pure-bred
rams, 242 ewes and 6,307 grade ewes
brought into their counties for breed
ing purposes due to their Influence and
4,905 head of sheep were cared for ac
cording to methods advocated by the
agents.
Marketing of farm products eo-o-eratlvely
is becoming one of the big
features of extension work, and the
agents are doing splendid work along
this line. Farmers of Tennessee re
ceived $5,909.72 more for their wool
by marketing co-operatively under the
direction of county agents than they
would have received had they followed
the usual practice of selling. The
agents assisted farmers In marketing
$1,207,954.25 worth of livestock and
crops nnd In buying fertilizers at a
saving of $809,623.95 to the farmers in
1919.
The home demonstration agents
were Just as active as the county agri
cultural agents and they accomplished
some wonderful things as shown by
the few Instances given here. Home
demonstration agents report 400 girls'
clubs holding regular meetings with an
attendance of 25,942. Women's clubs
holding regulnr meetings 250 with an
attendance of 22,407. Community ac
tivities are being developed in the
counties as a result of this work. The
agents visited 55,200 homes, distrib
uted 123,520 bulletins, held 0,917 meet
ings and traveled 185,780 miles. The
estimated attendance at meetings held
is 344,392. Two hundred and forty
seven girls paid all or a part of their
school expenses with money earned In
club work. The total value of food
put up under the direction of the
agents amounted to $711,901. '
DAIRYING NOW BIG
PAYING INDUSTRY
- IN MANYJGUNTIES
Is Encouraging Sign of Prog
ress In Tennessee Farming
Many Creameries Are
Being Operated
One encouraging sign of progress In
Tennessee farming is the notable in
crease In creameries and In dairy In
dustry generally within the past few
years. The State Dairy Commissioner,
W. T. Magruder, Jr., reports that from
twelve creameries In Tennessee on
January 1, 1919, the creameries have
grown to twenty-nine now in operation
and ail doing a . good business. On
January 1, 1919, there were only twenty-four
cream buying stations In Ten
nessee, There are now 250. There
are eighty-four lice.nsed ice cream
plants, eight cheese factories, ten city
milk plants, five of these having been
started in the 'pnst two years.
For the year 1916 the state manu
factured 1,141,922 pounds o creamery
butter. "
For the year 1917 the state manufac
tured 1,006,713 pounds of creamery
butter.
For the year 1918 the state manufac
tured 2,162400 pounds of creamery
butter.
For the year 1919 the state manufac
tured 8,932,020 pounds of creamery
butter.
For 1920 Hie state will manufacture
over 6,000,000 pounds.
For 1918 the cheese factories manu
factured 39,902 pounds of cheddor
cheese.
For 1919 the cheese factories mnnu
factured9,202 pounds of cheddr
cheese.
For 1920 the cheese factories will
manufacture about 125,000 pounds.
There is no region better suited for
this manner of industry than tho cen
tral basin of Tennessee, and it can bo
profitably conducted in all parts of
the state. The industry has taken on
an Impetus that promises to develop
a greater growth In the future. It
will add much to. the agricultural
wealth of the state.
Three Creameries Make Fine Records,
April 11, 1019,' to October, 1920, the
Robertson County Creamery paid $54,
800.48 to the farmers for cream. This
Is unusually well for a county situ
ated as Robertson is, in the tobacco
section where dairy interests are low.
The creamery made 107,691 pounds of
butter during the time mentioned.
County Agent Jones has done excellent
dairy work in his county.
The Bedford Co-operative Creitmery
during Its first year of operation made
153.447 pounds of butter. The cream
ery Is going to put In a refrigerating
system, which Is a sign of its pro
gress. They will be enabled by this
to handle more business and the qual
ity of the hotter will be improved.
