Farm Photo: Artificial Insemination 1935

photo: Shorpy's
August 1935. Prince George's County, Maryland. "One step in artificial insemination." If you like animals, and working with your hands, we have the perfect opening -- apply within. (And, smoking permitted!) 35mm nitrate negative by Carl Mydans for the Farm Security Administration.


  1. A picture is worth a thousand words!
    Priceless. :D
    thanks for the great blog BTW, I continue to enjoy your excellent news and articles.

  2. p.a.t.
    Ha. No doubt a pretty good government job during the Great Depression!

    We need TOTN's take on this photo, I do believe.

  3. a little too much information.

  4. You do realize of course that that is a bull and they are collecting semen. Insemination comes later
