Excerpt from Living and Working on a Farm: For High School Boys and Girls, in Cities and Towns
If you prove to those in charge of the training program that you are qualified for, and really interested in farm work, every effort will be made to place you with a farmer who has indicated a willingness and desire to use relatively inexperienced workers.
You will be asked to register for farm work and the farmer will also fill out a form. Then the farmer's request for a worker will be matched with the information on the student registration cards. In that way, it is hoped that boys will be placed on the type of farms they prefer and are best fitted for.
The labor training program is not a one-sided affair. The problem of' using inexperienced help is being discussed with farmers at meetings this winter. The farmers are familiar with this entire program, and will recognize that you are not seasoned, experienced farm hands.
Another way to get placed on a farm this summer is to do so on your own initiative. If you have farm friends or relatives, get in touch with them. They may have something for you. If you do accept a job, be sure to notify the agency which has your registration card. Otherwise, valuable time may be wasted trying to place you.
Those in charge of this program believe that most of the capable and willing city boys who complete this training course and follow the plan outlined for placement will stand a good chance of being placed on farms next summer. They are convinced that the success or failure of your summer will depend on how conscientiously and industriously you prepare and plan for it.
The following is a list of books and papers which will help you to know more about living and working on a farm.
