Many instructors teaching vocational agriculture in high schools can greatly improve their teaching techniques by first improving their knowledge of teaching. New teachers would be more efficient if they, too, could find out more definitely what they should teach before they begin 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 in Clemmons High School, Anderson County, Texas. It is also hoped that these suggestions may prove helpful to teachers of vocational agriculture in other schools in Anderson County. A survey was made of certain animal husbandry practices to determine the practices used. From this survey deductions were made and it is hoped that the information found will be used in outlining a program in animal husbandry to be taught in Clemmons High School.

The problem dealt with in this study may best be set forth by the following questions: 1. What are the animal husbandry practices used by the 100 Negro farmers surveyed in Anderson County? 2. What practices are essential for successful animal husbandry production on these 100 farms surveyed? 3. To what extent can the animal husbandry practices be improved in Clemmons School Community, Anderson County, Texas?
