emerging from adolescence its more attractive and better looking than the old The film titled Farmings New Face was shown Monday to congressmen farm leaders and government of ficials The picture pulled together information secured by the 1959 census of agriculture and showed changes in the attitudes patterns and buying habits of todays changing farm market The film took note of the fact that while there are fewer farms than five years ago farming continues to be Americas biggest business There are still 20 times as many farms as there are other manufacturing establishments And the American farmer continues to be the nations biggest single customer spending S39 billion annually for industrial i products The fewer but larger farms produce more and consume more of the products of industry Using census figures the film showed that investment in farm machinery equipment has increased six times since 1940 land and buildings four times average value per farm has increased 55 per cent since 1954 total assets have in creased from billion in 1954 to S204 billion in 1960 George Beal and Joe Bohlen rural sociologist at Iowa Slate University said changing status symbols are an integral part of the changing farm picture They said it is no longer so important that the farmer own land and how much he owns but how much in terms of land resources does he command Field machinery and materials handling equipment are becoming the new status symbolsof the60s the sociologists said Bcal and Bohlen said todays business farmer looks at agriculture first as a way of making a living
