Throwback Thursday: Beet Field
Check out what we found on the Nebraska Memories archive!
This #ThrowbackThursday shows a long line of boys standing in a beet field at the Nebraska State Industrial School in Kearney. In addition to their school studies and training in trades such as carpentry, shoe repair, and tailoring, the boys helped raise farm animals and crops for their table and for sale. 1,000 bushels of table beets and 941 tons of sugar beets were harvested at the school.
