Educational Results from Demonstration Farms and Agricultural Colleges
Educational Results from Demonstration Farms and Agricultural Colleges.
For these, and other reasons, we have long held that demonstration farms properly conducted are far more valuable as an educational agent in agricultural, horticultural and pastoral matters than colleges of agriculture, with their costly equipment of buildings, apparatus and scientific professors. By this we mean that, in proportion to cost, the farming industry as a whole, and therefore the whole community, will derive far more practical benefit, because extended over a much wider area, from the educational influence of these farms than from that of agricultural colleges.
