"The film discusses the advantages of electricity on the farm. Footage includes shots of a young boy hauling water, a handpump and compares these to scenes involving electric farm machinery."


"Business in Motion: Films of Current Interest," Canadian Business 24 (July 1951): 62.
"Actual case histories explain and illustrate how electricity is taking over more and more farm tasks, in the fields, in the farm kitchen, in the farm factory. Drying baled hay, feeding poultry automatically, carrying ear corn to a sheller - all are good examples of efficient and economical use of electrical equipment. For good measure, there's a sequence showing a typical country fair."
