It's the American Farmers' Job to Keep Them Fed!

This poster echoes messages created for farmers in WWI. The style of this poster is noticeably different, however, as are the warnings. According to Purina Mills, a company interested in modernizing farms for greater output, farmers' enemies now include “careless management, wasteful feeding and accidents” in addition to the disease and parasites of the earlier farm messages from WWI.

Purina Mills, c.1944.
