Summary
Unnamed host interviews Mr. Howard S. Zeigler, from Rockingham County, recently elected new president of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation; and Mr. H. G.

Recording is made during the time of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 22nd Annual convention, which was held in Richmond, Virginia. Zeigler and Blalock discuss the recent convention and who spoke at the banquet. Twenty-two resolutions were presented and adopted at the morning session, including one regarding using the Marshall Plan for sending food abroad.

The Farm and Home News was a 15 minute program that aired a various points during the 6 a.m. hour. The Monday segment was devoted to the Home Demonstration Agent, while Wednesday was devoted to the County Agent and Friday the State Department of Agriculture. Programming for the Farm and Home News on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays was "devoted to news of the farm world, nation-wide, from the wires of the United States." The program ended sometime around March 1950.
