Within the past several year's many farmers in the United States have gradually abandoned traditional methods in animal husbandry practices and have approached their problems more scientifically.
However, in certain sections of the country, progress has been slower than in others. This fact is especially true of some localities in Texas.
In this study, an effort has been made to secure pertinent data concerning the status of farmers in Milam County, Texas. Special consideration has been given to the number of animal husbandry practices that are commonly carried out on the farms surveyed.
Purpose of the Study
Many instructors teaching vocational agriculture in high schools can greatly improve their teaching techniques, by first improving their knowledge of teaching. It is with these facts in mind that this study was undertaken. The writer proposes in this study to work out suggestions that may be used in teaching animal husbandry at Aycock High School, Milam County, Texas. It is also hoped that these suggestions may prove helpful to teachers of vocational agriculture in other schools in Milam County, Texas.
