Episode 4: Ruth, Peter, and Alex face a WWII-style government inspection. The consequences of failure could be dire: more than 2,000 farmers deemed not productive enough were thrown off their farms during the war. The inspector tells them to grow and to get their milking operation up and running, and so they grapple with a new tractor and a milking machine, as part of a mechanization trend.
