People on the Farm: Raising Beef Cattle.
Crain, Robert L.
This booklet provides information on raising beef cattle through profiles of two families, the Ritschards of Colorado and the Schuttes of Missouri. Through descriptions of daily life for these families, the booklet discusses the way of life on modern beef cattle farms and the problems and decisions faced by farmers. The booklet explains how agriculture fits into the national economy and illustrates major economic concepts: supply and demand, impact of technology, division of labor, and the role of government in farming. Through the daily activities of these families, the booklet provides information on the skills, lifestyle, income, and values needed by persons who are successful in such a career. The booklet is illustrated with photographs of the families at work on their farms. (KC)
