This industrial film footage captures scenes of a rice harvest in 1955, including processing and milling. Later, at the Santa Anita Ranch no. 2 in Linn, Texas, ranchers, cattle, and hogs spend time in the fields and pastures. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
