9781883477301: The NFO : A Farm Belt Rebel

Tough economic times spawned a radical new kind of farm organization in the wake of the Korean War, a time when the combination of drought and depressed farm prices gripped the rural midlands. In this scenario the National Farmers Organization (NFO) was born. No one sensed then that this new farm group would order a series of controversial food market boycotts in an attempt to obtain its objectives for collective bargaining for American agriculture. The NFO called its boycotts holding actions , and staged such campaigns to try and force food processors to bargain for higher prices for farmers. This book explains the reason for the development of the NFO along with descriptions of the scenarios about specific holding actions and protests.
