Choose leaders wisely
Our prosperity depends primarily on the commercial efficiency of the occupants of the earth. Agriculture is a small employer industry. A high average level of intelligence and general knowledge is therefore more necessary than in the case of manufacturers where the work of many men and women is controlled by a few.
The practical application of science is of primary importance in agriculture, but the results of experiments must be interpreted according to local conditions.
No amount of specialist skills that individual farmers may possess can make up for the lack of ideas and quick thinking. For the protection of their interests, farmers must choose the right kind of men to be their leaders.
These must be drawn from the base of their own profession if the many problems to be solved are to be approached in a professional manner.
The completion of land purchase, the organization of industries connected with agriculture, the co-operative movement, forestry, arterial drainage and the improvement of our native breeds of cattle require immediate attention.
Relatively poor results have been obtained from the huge sums spent in the past on agricultural development. Farmers viewed with suspicion the work of commissions and organizations where they were virtually unrepresented and whose aims they had only a very vague idea.
The apathy, distrust and secrecy that have prevailed for so long should now be replaced by a spirit of progress and trust.
