9781330460603: The Business of Farming (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Business of Farming

Business is nothing more than being industriously engaged in the affairs of some occupation from which we derive our support.

Farming is our biggest business. It feeds the nations of the world and is the basis of all prosperity and happiness, and therefore should receive our biggest consideration, and be safeguarded by our best brains and legislation.

In pioneer days when farming implements and machinery were of the crudest kind, requiring muscle to use them, brawn, more than brains, was needed in the business of farming, in order to rescue soils from the wilderness of timber and prairie growth.

In these days of worn and worn-out soils and the abandoned farm, with the most improved labor-saving farm machinery, the business of farming needs brains more than brawn, that our soils may be rescued from the wilderness of wasted fertility that has stifled them.

Although the business of farming requires in its operations constant industry and the exercise of thought and study in its every detail, in order to make it successful, yet it affords greater opportunities for the best and right living, and the achievement of happiness, than any other business.

Excerpt from The Business of Farming In the face of this book multiplicity we can offer no excuse for the publication of this volume fur ther than the fact that the importance of the sub jcet treated at this time so bears upon the happi ness and prosperity of our people and nation, that it becomes an impelling motive for its publication. We do not make the claim that for this volume we have even written a truth not yet uttered, but believe we have placed an emphasis upon many truths pertaining to the business of farming that has not been previously placed, which, according to Drummond, is ample justification for perpetra ting another book upon a long suffering public. In this volume we have simply recorded the knowledge gathered from long experience, careful observation, and intense study of the subjects treated, and we have attempted to state this knowl edge thus gathered in a simple, untechnical way, so that any one can read, be interested, entertained and profited thereby.
