What Was Farm Like In The 1960s?

I just need an idea. To narrow it down even more, it would be in the United States.

    It kind-of depends on how many acres, what they are doing and so on.

    I was employed working on a huge farm in Iowa, it was my first time even though I came from what I thought was a farm in Illinois.

    The term farm - well anyway I was spending all hours (from sunup to sundown and then sum working), it never ends.

    Sleeping is just a brief respite from working - even people who work 8 hours a day and maybe have even 2 hour drive do not have to spend every waking hour working.

    The only people that I have ever seen do that are truckers. Working on a farm - is a full time and then some job that never ends.

    good question

    The concern was justified. Farming in the 1950s and 60s had serious challenges, and millions of farmers left for jobs in town or the city.
