The Western Canada Farm Prof
its Are Away in Excess.
Mr. George H. Barr, of Iowa, holds
seven sections of land in Saskatche
wan. These he has fenced and rent
ed. either for pasture or cultivation,
all paying good interest on the invest
Mr. Barr says that farm land at
home in Iowa is held at §150 per acre.
These lands are in a high state of cul
tivation. with splendid improvements
in houses, barns, stables and silos, and
yet, the revenue returns from them are
only from two to three per cent per
annum on investment.
Last year, 1915, his half share of
crop-on a quarter section in Saskatche
wan, wheat on new breaking, gave him
35 per cent on the capital invested—
§25.00 an acre. The crop yield was
35 bushels per acre. This year the
same quarter-section, sown to Red
Fife on stubble gave 3,280 bushels. His
shaiv, 1,643 bushels of 1 Northern at
$L5<J per bushel, gave him $2,563.08.
Seed, half the twine and half the
threshing bill cost him $453.00. Allow
ing a share of the expense of his an
nual inspection trip, charged to this
quarter-section even to $110.00, and he
has left $2,006.00. that is 50 per cent
of the original cost of the land. Any
one can figure up that another aver
age crop will pay. not 2 or 3 per cent
on investment, as in Iowa, but the
total price of the land. Mr. Barr says:
“That’s no joke now.”
jir. tsarr was instrumental in Bring
ing a number of farmers from Iowa to
Saskatchewan in 1913. He referred to
one of them. Geo. H. Kerton. a tenant
farmer in Iowa. He bought a quarter
section of improved land at $32.00 an
acre near Hanley. From proceeds of
crop in 1914. 1915. 1916. he has paid
for the land. Mr. Barr asked him a
week ago: “Well, George, what shall
I tell friends down home for you'’'’
The reply was: “Tell them I shall
never go back to be a tenant for any
man.’’ Another man. Charles Haight,
realized $18,000 in cash for his wheat
crops in 1915 and 1916.
Mr. Barr when at home devotes
most of his time to raising and deal
ing in live stock. On his first visit of
inspection to Saskatchewan, he real
ized the opportunity there was here
for grazing cattle. So his quarter- ..
sections, not occupied, were fenced
and rented as pasture lands to farm
ers adjoining. His creed is: “Let na
ture supply the feed all summer while
cattle are growing, and then in the
fall, take them to farmsteads to be
finished for market. There is money
in it.”—Advertisement.
