Agents will, if needed, make farm visits in cooperating counties.

6. Agents will direct calls to the agent responsible for that discipline.

slide41
7. Agents submit expenses to their home Co., reciprocal actions of the cooperators will essentially equalize the cost among Co.’s

Co.’s will make every attempt to hire to fit the specialization plan.

10. Agents must commit fully to the plan.
