But optimism unshakable - by Lea Tonkin - The livestock farmer's lot has never been an armchair kind of existence, and the current problems of rising costs, fuel shortages and poor weather add uncertainty to the cost of doing business. Yet the farmers' optimism is pretty unshakable, said the marketing director for a local grain storage and feeding systems company. "We are optimistic because the farmers are optimistic," said Morris Fonda, Director of Marketing for the Arlington Heights-based A. O. Smith Harvestore Products Inc., subsidiary of A. O. Smith Corp. "With the increase in the more businesslike type of farm, we all think this is good for their outlook," Fonda adds. The overall trend, despite recent boycotts, is toward higher consumption of pork and beef and this means rising farm income. This translates into hefty sales increases for the Harvestore division. "Through March of this year, we are double our production for the same period last year," said Fonda. (..) Fonda is an alumnus of Michigan State University (1931 where he majored in forestry and agriculture. A Presidential Citation of the Soil Conservation Society of America was made last week to Morris Fonda (left) of Arlington Heights by Society President Herbert Hopper. The citation was awarded for Fonda's continuing daily efforts to advance soil and water conservation and for leadership in developing new conservation products.
