Farm and home life has been designed to help people cope with closely related rather than specific problems on the farm. An efficiently operated farm business should provide comfortable and pleasant living conditions, adequate food and feed for the farm needs, cash income and financial security for the home life. In light of the previous statement, it is believed that the farm families should have as their goal; to provide a better living and improve their farm operations.
Operating a farm involves careful planning and many decisions which are more or less integrated and at the same time interdependent. To help farm families help themselves to have a more satisfying and abundant life, we need to know: (1) What can be done to improve farm family living? (2) To what extent have the families in Fort Bend County improved and developed over a period of ten years? (3) To what extent have these improvements increased ownership of farm and home equipment? and (4.) To what extent have these developments increased profit and improved health and sanitation conditions? We think that all farm families should have its own farm program. Therefore, the problem is to find out what farm families can do to improve their farm and home operations for better living.
