   The Banker-Farmer Exchange is doing everything it can to co-operate
with the State, County and local breed associations, County Agents, cow test-
ing associations and others for extending the market for livestock. In a
number of instances we have been able to arrange for local field men through
the cow testers, breed secretaries, and county agents, for the handling of
buyers desiring to purchase car load lots.
Expense.
    The local banks make no charges for their services. To help support the
central office and pay for stenography, postage, advertising, etc., the seller
is
asked to pay the Banker-Farmer Exchange a five percent commission on sales
made to parties referred to him by the Exchange. In case of carload lot ship-
ments, which call for the services of a local field man to drive from farm
to
farm, the buyer is asked to pay the commission instead of the seller.
Selling Listed Stock Through Other Chanmels
    Listing stock for sale through the Banker-Farmer Exchange does not ii
 any way interfere with selling them through other channels, and when thu
 sold there is no commission or other obligation except to notify the Exchang
 that the stock has been sold.      I
 Opportunities For Sale Through the Exchange.
     During the past year the Banker-Farmer Exchange has received 692 in-
 quiries for 9690 head of cattle. Of these, 1470 head are from within the
State
 and 8220 head are from other States. We have effected 60 individual exchange9
 within the State and have sold 3S' carloads of grade and purebred Hoisteins
and
 Guernseys outside of the State. These have gone as far north as Canada,
east
 to Maryland, south to Georgia and west to the State of Washington. As the
 Exchange becomes better known these figures will naturally increase and
the
 Exchange is rapidly developing for the farmers of Wisconsin a substantial
 market for their surplus stock that is not only State-wide, but Nation
 wide in its scope. The farmer can start the machinery of the ExchangJ
 working for him by simply listing what he has for sale at his local bank
