The Grain Growers' Guide

The Grain Growers' Guide was a magazine for the farm and home, owned and controlled by farmers only, and published by the Manitoba Grain Grower’s Association, the Saskatchewan Grain Grower’s Association, and the United Farmers of Alberta.  The title changed to The Country Guide in 1929-1931.  The magazine included classified ads, market prices for livestock and produce, advertisements for everything from equipment to auctions, articles for gardening, government, horticulture, and a one page spread for articles designated to different provinces.  There is also a section for ladies called "The Home", which included recipes, sewing patterns, and poems, a Mailbag page, which were letters to the editor, and a question and answer page.
