Michigan Farming Historical Newspapers
The Michigan Farming Journals collection contains three newspapers titles, which were digitized from microfilm:
- Michigan Farmer and Livestock Journal (1909-1928)
- Michigan Farmer and State Journal of Agriculture – Household Supplement (1884-1893)
- Michigan Business Farming/Michigan Business Farmer (1912-1928)
Published in the state of Michigan, the materials in this collection portray rural life from the mid-1880s to the late 1920s, including topics such as livestock and farm management, descriptions of animal breeds, ailment and disease preventions, household and farm financial management, and household and family care.
Funding for digitization was generously provided by the USAIN, AgNIC, and CRL as part of Project Ceres.
Bulk downloads of the full text and PDFs of the collection are also available at Michigan Agricultural Newspapers Dataset.
