COLLEGE STATION. Rmetgh
Figures recently released by the
Bureau of Agricultural Economics,
U. S. Department of Agriculture,
show that cash receipts from farm
marketings for the first quarter
of 1948 were nearly 21 million
dollars below the same period last
year, according to C. Brice Ratch
ford, in charge of farm manage
ment at State college.
Income from livestock and live
stock products was about one rail
lion dollars higher, but income
from crops was about 22 million
dollars lower, Mr. Ratchford said.
"The hiajor portion of the North
Carolina farm income." the spe
cialist commented, "is obtained in
the fall when tobacco, cotton, and
peannts are sold. The smaller in
come during the spring should
serve as a warning for farmers to
keep production costs as low as
possible during the summer."
Mr. Ratchford said some of Ihe
best ways to cut expenses for the
rest of the year as follows:
Make efficient use of labor and
cut cash labor costs wherever pos
Take care of machinery and cut
machinery repair bills and fuel
Cure tobacco as cheaply as pos
sible. I'se grazing to cut feed costs.
Cut family living expenses with
a good garden.
