Farmers' Cooperative Organizations.
One county plans to; organize a
fruit growing association, another
desires to feature livestock, another
has in mind the purchase of supplies
Such is a good thing for the far
mers of tho, county. Tho develop
ment of all rural interests for far
mers generally depends upon their
oc-opcrative organization.
Such an organization must bo very
particular that the man who acts as
its selling agent is one who thoroly
understands his business. On him
depends the satisfactory solution of
the marketing problem for which
such an organization is intended. If
ho is not the right man tho organiza
tion will fail and be the cause of
great dissatisfaction to the members.
The success or failure of the project
depends in large measure upon the
manager. The members of this or
ganization must also havo the true
co-operative spirit. They usually ex
pect too much of an organization at
the outset and when these expecta
tions do not always materialize, fric
tion develops. For this reason it is
important that the members bo of
a mind to see the organization thru
and realize what it will accomplish
for them in the future, even in the
face of a few difficulties at tho start.
