Trail to Better Dairying

In the 1940s there was a shortage of milk and quality dairy cattle in Hancock County, Maine. To remedy this, Maine's first county-wide 4-H club was born. This film was made to document this groundbreaking first year. The children show off their progress and their calves in visits to each of their homes. Their efforts are rewarded at the 1946 Blue Hill Fair and at their end-of-the-year banquet at the Trenton Lobster Pound.
