week of unemployment  farming  self-employed 


Mine worker laid off for the summer. I reject any hard and fast rule that anyone farming over 640 acres must be considered as making farming their main livelihood, as the Board suggests. Mine worker laid off for 3 months in the summer starting with July. Many thousands of farmers with no more acreage than claimant follow farming as a principal means of livelihood. The size of the farm here and the commitment to it can hardly be regardedas minor in extent.
