Many a farmer who has been loa- j
j ing money for years without know!
Ing it has found that by keepltig re- ^
cords he can find the "leaks' in iua v
business, plug them, and make his
farm show a profit .
In farming, said R. E. L. Greene, o
assistant agricultural economist ot i
i he N. C. Agricultural Experiment h
tStation, it's easy to lose money witn s
out knowing it. /
A farm may supply a family with '
t food to' eat and clothes to wear, but
at the same tinie bad cropping prac- (
tices may bo wearing out the soil ^
so that at the end of the year Ufa
term may be worth considerably less
than it was at the first of the year.
lty keeping records, a farmer can
! tell which crops are ntcst profitable,
whether the farming program is balanced
or not, and whether the gener
al cultural practices are satisfactory,
Records kept In one year also aidin
planning the farming program for
the next year. They also provide a
helpful mean8 for determining who- <
ther the program is working out a?
planned, or whether changea should
be made to bring the program back
Into line. i
A glance at the records can also '
show whether certain farm enter- t
prises are costing more than they i
are worth. ' I
. Records are a source of in forma 1
t.ion in mak'ng credit statements j
that are valuable in the event it ?
necessary to secure a loan, or in ta- t
