Two siblings from the city visit their uncle's dairy farm for the summer. The children tour the farm's modern facilities, including milking machines. During a summer of hard work and healthy living, the boy gains enough strength to finally climb a rope. At the end of the summer, the city-dwellers return to the metropolis with their family, wiser and healthier for having spent their summer on their uncle's farm.

Gone the way of the Dodo...
10 January 2003 | by (West Lafayette, Indiana) – See all my reviews

First, while I've trashed one of these instructional videos on this site before ("Cheating,") I will say that this film was made for elementary school students in 1960. It's very similar to films I watched in grade school in the early-mid '60s. So we can't expect anything.

This one gives us a look -admittedly VERY sanitized- of a dairy farm in 1960, when there was a seemingly bright future for such things. But today the family farm is virtually gone, its labors absorbed by huge agri-business. Therefore, I see this film as a document about a bygone era.
