Ruger Of Fenton Farmers with large dairy herds are about as scarce in this area as Indians and buffaloes, but our Country Neighbor this week. John R. Ruger, shown here, happens to be one of those scarce items — a dairy farmer. John farms a 145 acre place 2'/2 miles north and two miles east of Fenton, which is owned by Mrs Ida Mueller, Fenton, Mr Ruqer's mother-in-law. Mr Ruger, his wife, the former Emily Mueller, and their three children, Jane, 19, who will attend Iowa State University as a sophomore this fall, John, 16, and Phillip, 12. who will attend Sentral high school in a couple of weeks, have resided on the farm for the past 11 years. The Rugers have a herd of top-flight Holsteins, which number 85 or 90. Milk from the herd, which is grade A, is sold to the Estherville dairy after it is removed from the cattle in a modern dairy parlor. Mrs Ruger, who likes Holsieins as well as, or better than, her husband, assists in the work with the herd. John is a son of Mr and Mrs John Ruger, Sr. of Lu- Verne. He was born and raised there, and taught rural schools in that area for five years during the depression (1932-37). He then went to Los Angeles for a year of diesel engineering, came back to this vicinity and farmed for three years northeast of Aigona and seven years near Wesley before moving to the present farm. Mr and Mrs Ruger were married in 1939 at Fen Jon. Most of the farm is devoted to dairying, with most of the acreage in hay and pasture land. The Rugers have 40 acres of corn and 20 acres of oats under cultivation this year. The Ruger boys manage a flock of 300 laying hens. Their son, John, entered the grand champion Holstein, 4-H class, at the Kossuth County Fair last week.
