Biographical / Historical

The University of Nebraska offered the Farm Operators courses for individuals who were not able to seek a four-year degree, possibly due to lack of time or financial resources. The courses focused farm buildings, woodwork, animal husbandry for the first-year sections of the course, with cooperative marketing, public speaking, farm motors for the second-year sections. A newsletter, titled "Farm Op Spotlight", published for the program provided details on activities and participants.
