The Marketing of Farm Products

Studies in the Organization of the Twin Cities Market

H. Bruce Price, editor

The Marketing of Farm Products

The editor has used rare judgment in his selection and arrangement of material, for the collection of separate articles blends into a harmonious picture. The book is a real contribution, not alone because of the material it contains, but particularly because it points to a new and valuable method of approach to the study of marketing.

The Marketing of Farm Products was first published in 1927. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

Fourteen specialists, including Professor John D. Black of Harvard University, and Dr. Holbrook Working, economist of the Stanford University Food Research Institute cooperated in these studies under the editorship of Professor H. Bruce Price.

The book is designed as a text for use in high schools and college classes in agricultural economics and is equipped with references for reading, tables, charts, maps, and an index. In addition to chapters describing the organization of the Minneapolis-St. Paul market for grain, hay, livestock, potatoes, dairy products, fruits, and vegetables, there are included discussions of the historical geographical, and theoretical aspects of the subject. It will prove a valuable reference work also for businessmen, and producers and consumers of farm products in the Twin Cities market area—a territory extending west and north into Montana and Canada, and east and south into Wisconsin and Iowa.
