Electric Research Farm
From Doug Reinemann on September 3rd, 2015
A 16 mm sound color film dedicated to the reduction of chore time and hand labor on America's Dairy Farms.
The Wisconsin Electric Research Farm is an experimental farm providing opportunity to study under actual working conditions the application of electric light, heat and power to all phases of dairy farm operation. The film shows how the American dairy farmer can reduce his chore time and hand labor with proper management, good planning and the use of electrical equipment. Electricity-to pump water, milk the cows, unload silage, clean the barn, dry hay, grind feed, and many other uses. From the transformer-to the distribution panel-to the house-the barn-the hog and poultry houses-the farm shop-and other buildings- the film rapidly summarizes research in the field of farm electrification .
