1st American ed.
Here is an exciting and informative guide to the past, present and future of farming. Superb color photographs give the reader a unique "eyewitness" view of farm animals, crops, machines, harvesting and every other aspect of farming. See all kinds of farm animals, both new breeds and old, a seed drill and a steam threshing machine, a sheep being shorn, an early tractor, a reaper-binder in action, a massive combine harvester, and horses at work. Learn how a cornstack is built, how wheat is separated from chaff, how genetic engineering affects farm animals, when the first plows were made, and what organic farmers do. Discover what silage is, who grew potatoes first, the inventions of the Egyptians, why dibblers walk backward, where corn is stored, what different animals eat, what a dock lifter looks like, and much, much more!
