Edwin R. Henson, a "world-renowned troubleshooter" for farmers, known for his work with the US Department of Agriculture after the Dust Bowl, discusses his work with UNRRA (United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration) rehabilitating farming in Europe. He talks specifically about conditions in Czechoslovakia, where farmers are in better shape than most other European countries at the time: draft animals, pigs and cattle, low levels of sheep herding, limitations on slaughter to rebuild animal populations.
