This longform advertising film (which includes an intermission) from the 1950s is an educational film presented by the J. I. Case Co. about agriculture and machinery. The Case Company was founded in 1842 and manufactured agricultural and construction equipment. It eventually merged with International Harvester and is now part of the entity known as CNH Global. The film is parted into two sections, first covering the seeding and cultivation of crops, followed by the harvesting all whilst using the farming equipment and machinery from J. I. Case Co. The tractor shown appears to be a Case 430 or 530, but it's not identified by model #.
