VETERANS AND THE LAND
While there is no way of knowing how many veterans want to buy farms,
letters received daily in the Department of Agriculture from men in the armed
forces and their families, reveal that considerable numbers are interested.
Reading matter sent out by the U. S. Department of Agriculture to inquiring
servicemen is calculated to give a realistic picture of farming to G. I.'s. The
- booklet "Shall I be a farmer?", recently issued by the department approaches
the subject in such a realistic manner.
After the first World War, many veterans were encouraged to settle on farms.
Some of them failed to make a success of farming, for a variety of reasons, among
which were: (1) they paid more for their land than it was worth and thus
incurred a debt load which the earning power of the land could not carry;
(2) they were sold farms too small for an adequate family living; (3) they were

sold land that was not suited to farming; or (4) they lacked the practiceka lij -
experience that is essential for most individuals to succeed in such ana .-
business as farming. ''''
There is no need to repeat these mistakes again after this war, since we w.
how to avoid them. Local communities can do a great deal to see to it ls:ita
veterans seeking farms are offered genuine opportunities and not mislj laats
buying land in undesirable units or at too high prices. One way to help. .0 ".
.,is to organize locally to bring veterans in touch with the county agricmla .'
agent and with experienced farmers who can give them sound advice O iW J .
they decide to buy or rent.. 7'. ., ; '3
When the serviceman has selected the county in which he wants to settle l. b'
should seek the advice and assistance of the county agricultural agent. The.. ,
county agent (usually located at the county seat) can help work out farm plan t
and give other advice about the particular farms that are for sale.
In most agricultural counties there is a County Advisory Committee to as6st
the county agent in helping returning servicemen. The Committee works cosy
with the county agent in advising veterans as to crops suitable for the cat : i
local farming practices, safe margin of indebtedness, leasing arrangementsQ:
the size of farm to support a family. Also, the county agent and the Comuii'b
can recommend the type of farm credit best suited to the veteran's lndiw p,
needs, and give information as to the sources of credit available in the ca ,lpW
whether it be for the purchase of the farm, improvement of the farm, mtlor '
stock and equipment. -
The serviceman must have been released from service before he can take .
advantage of the partial loan guaranty to be provided by the-Veterans' A&mb x
istration under the "G. I. Bill of Rights." This legislation- makes the Wo
War II veteran eligible for consideration for tenant purchase loans provltaiJ :y -:r
Title I of the Bankhead-Jones Farm Tenant Act of July 22, 1937. This bMl ":i: k
provides partial government guaranty of loans to veterans to buy farm 1d *4
livestock and equipment, or to improve farms. The guaranty can not exceed O ,,
percent of the loan, and the amount so guaranteed is not to exceed $2,000. .'
Regulations for administering this farm loan feature of the "G. I. Bill of Rights"
are being developed as rapidly as possible and will be given wide plibllc notice
when completed. Further information about this feature of the bill e4n be
obtained, as available, from the county agent, the local representative of local
government agencies, the nearest Regional Office of the Veterans' Administratiop,
or the United States Department of Agriculture, Washington 25, D. 0. ',
