FULL USE OF FARM MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT .
Proper care, servicing, and sharing of farm production and transportation :
equipment as an aid to meeting 1944 food production goals is the aim of a Nation-
wide educational program being sponsored by the War Food Administration and
other groups. :..
The goal of the program is the efficient maintenance and full use of farm ma-
chinery and equipment, transportation vehicles, and farm structures to obtain
maximum food production with minimum use of labor, steel, petroleum sup-
plies, building materials, rubber, and other critical materials.
The program calls for the full cooperation of farm-supply industries and
dealers, and public and private agencies which come in touch with farmers.
Programs directed at the "care, share, and repair" of farm equipment have
been carried out for some months by farm-supply industries, Government agen- ft
cies, and farmers themselves. The new educational program is designed to bring
all such efforts "under one banner" to obtain best results in the critical months ..
The program to help farmers fully utilize their production and transportation
equipment is part of the over-all Government campaign to promote the produc- "
tion, sharing, and proper use of food. Consequently, the same Food Fights :
for Freedom symbol is being used, but with a slogan "Keep Your War Equipment
Fit and Fighting" to tie special activities together.
The program has eight specific objectives based on the following points: ."
1. Reaching food production goals in 1944 depends on full utilization of
all available farm production and transportation equipment.
2. Farmers should constantly check, recheck, and adjust their equipment -i,
for maximum mechanical efficiency. '..
3. Farmers should check repair needs and order parts early so that delivery
and Installation can be completed before equipment is needed for -
operation, ordering only needed parts. :a,
4. Farmers should pool the use of their equipment where possible. i
5. It Is Important that the equipment be used at top efficiency on a time basis. :4i
6. Farmers should sell surplus equipment or make it available for use when H
T 1 (^'f'*/! f^^lit.*"5"!
7. Farm buildings should be kept in good operating condition through repair
8. Mu'-hlinery should be thought of both as war equipment and multiple
maninpowr which now must be used more efficiently to compensate for ... :. ...!!.
acute manpower shortages caused by war. ,,
In addition to the War Food Administration, the Office of War Informatlont,
War Production Board, Office of Defense Transportation, Petroleum AdminltI -.
tlon for War, and U. S. Office of Education are cooperating in the progpam.
Cooperating Industry groups include those who supply farm machinery ad.
equipment, pttrol'iIunI supplies, farmin buildings materials, farm vehicle, tI"s6
and other farm production supplies. ...
