1881 Program for Agricultural Lectures Bradford VT


In 1881 the Vermont Board of Agriculture held a series of lectures throughout the state. This flyer was for the area around Bradford, VT, on Dec. 15 and 16.

The event included, for instance, a lecture on Hygiene, another on Creameries and Butter Making, another on Will Farming Pay in Vermont?, and “Adulteration of What we Eat.”

The lecturers were experts on their subjects, for instance, the Creameries and Butter Making lecture was given by a representative of the VT Dairymen’s Association.

The program included this note: “All lectures free. Ladies and children are especially invited to be present at all seasons. Subjects for discussion, to be brought forward by the farmers in the form of question, on slips of paper or orally, may be introduced. All present are invited to join in the discussions. Persons coming by cars to attend the meetings will receive a return check over the Passumpsic railroad on applying to the secretary.”

(Hint: If you want to know more about each lecture, go to the Vermont Agricultural Report by the State Board of Agriculture for 1881-1882.)
