Vocational education in agriculture has for its primary aim: "To train present and prospective farmers for proficiency in farming," (2) Proficiency in modern farming necessarily includes considerable work with tools and equipment. Any comprehensive plan for farmer training must provide opportunity for the development of such abilities involving the use of mechanics that are essential to successful farm management and operation.
Among the contributing objectives of vocational education in agriculture, the two following items indicate the general nature and emphasis upon this phase of the training program:
To select and purchase suitable materials and supplies for improvement.
To perform appropriate economical improvement activities. These general objectives have guided the writer in the selection and organization of the materials in this thesis. Guiding principles have been developed; useful information and facts have been presented; plans for the development of necessary skills have been suggested; the encouragement of desirable ideals and attitudes has been recommended, all to the end that the farmer-student will be more intelligently prepared to handle the tools and equipment needed to perform the necessary mechanical activities of the farm and home.
