MAF's Metric Moments
14 Tales for Radio by Bill White

The lighter side of farm metrics with MAF's Bill White.

In 1972 New Zealand was changing to using the metric system of measurements.

To aid the rural community with this change, the Radio Unit, Information Services, Ministry of Agriculture & Fisheries, Wellington, New Zealand, produced a series of short radio public service announcements with a light-hearted theme.
