Consequently. Farmers were steadily losing title to the land outright and were forced to become tenant far Ruers. The following tables show the decrease in farm ownership and the increase in farm tenancy. In the United states from u. S. Dept of a farms farms owner tenant operated operated 19205,314,150 2,185,480 19305.185,399 3,671,667 this shows an increase of 1,-486,187 in tenant operated farms in the United states. In Minnesota from v. Of Minn farms farms owner tenant operated 1920132.744 1930126,570 equity or actual ownership of All Minnesota Farmers in 1933. Stating this in another Way a Farmer who has been Able to keep title to his land has lost Over 60 per cent of his ownership. He is 60 per cent poorer so far As his land is concerned. This has been brought about by increased mortgage debt increased interest charges and decreased land values. Now we see what the debt and income problems mean to the Farmer. He now has Only 40 per cent of his land and 29 per cent of his income compared to ten years ago. Any Farmer is Well aware of his own individual situation but these figures give a Clear and accurate picture of the destitution of All Farmers throughout the entire state of Minnesota. J Hunts ii Winter King a Ani other ii Good Coal operated 44,138 57,638 this shows an increase of Over 130% in tenant operated farms in Minnesota in ten years. These figures give a general i idea on the rate at which Minnesota Farmers Are losing their land land becoming tenants. Bear in i mind that 70 per cent of All mortgages Are held by the big corporations. With the decrease in farm values these big corporations Are fast becoming land owning Barons and Farmers by the thousands through the taking of interest Are becoming the serfs. The patriotic cry of american individualism j works Fine for the mortgage Holder but has no meaning for the farm Ier. For those Farmers who Are still fortunate enough to hold the title to their property even with a j mortgage it is Only a question of time before they too wih pay rent to the Barons Minnesota owner Farmers have steadily been losing their equities in the land. The Farmers equity los the difference Between the mar Jet value and the mortgage debt. In the final analysis this is the exact measurement of the farm Erst ownership. To illustrate the dwindling away of the Farmers equity in Minnesota we will use figures from the University of Minnesota for the past to years. In 1924, the value of All farm land in Minnesota less mortgage debt was $2,284,000,000. By 1933 the value had dropped to $899,000,000.
