SAVILLE COUNTY AGENT III I Illll I The Changing Farm Scene There is nothing new about the statement "The Changing Farm Scene." This is something we know is taking place all of the time. We, however, need to keep ourselves up to date on these changes and govern ourselves ac- cordingly. The person who keeps himself most up to date on these changes and adapts himself to them is us- ually most successful. A recent study made"of the 1959 Agriculture Census revealed that the actual number of farms in the United States decreased by a million between 1954 and 1959. Nearly three fourths of this decrease was farms under 69 ac. ~'es. The average farm family now handles three hundred and two acres of land. This is double what it was 25 years ago. The average investment per farm runs $45,000 now and this is six times what it was twenty year~ ago. Eighty percent off arm famil. ies now own their farms. The average farm buys five and three tenths tons of fertili, zer per year. This is thirty six percent more than five years ago. No doubt we are living in a changing world. Whats more changes are taking place at an accelerating rate. Farmers who survive must be business men, with an average investment of $45,000 an operator must farm "to make money. The Successful farmers must produce efficiently a volume pro duct[on at a low cost per unit. The successful farmer will keep ,abreast of these chang and make changes in his operat- ion accordingly. One speaker at a dairy meet- ing made the statement "He had to run like the dickens to keep even". One other speaker said "If you go to sleep you had just as well not wake up, because the crowd will have moved so far a- head you will be lost for good." These statements may be a little exaggerated, but they bring out the point• We must accept ehan ges and adapt ourselves to it.
