When I was in high school, we spent a couple of months at the school’s farm each year. At the farm we learned farming. In this picture my teacher, Mr. CHEN Leiming is showing us how to use farm cattle to plow (plough) the field, in which we will plant rice seedings later. The guy in the middle of the picture is me. In front of my left face is the cattle whip.
It has been many years since the picture was taken. I estimate it was in either 1976 or 1977. Of course, in 1978 we were graduating and were busy preparing for the national college entrance exam.
