Bosworth Guernsey Herd Is Oldest In State of Iowa . The W. H. Bosworth herd of Guernseys is in itself the oldest Guernsey herd in Iowa—if not west of the Mississippi river. In the herd at present are 40 head of Guernseys. The herd itself was founded in 1904 by Judge W. B. Quarton, with two cows first brought here from Minnesota. The next stock came from Pennsylvania and New York. Bosworth, himself, is from New York State, where he fanned until 1924, when he bought a half interest of and farmed with Mr. Quarton. The herd boasts one of the top bulls in the United States, "Chedco Hurricane," a levity bred bull. The animal's grandmother sold for $15,0.00, and his. great grandfather, sold for $22,500 and again later .for $25,000' at auction. This latter animal held the world's record and was twice grand champion of the National Dairy Show, a record no other cow has ever achieved. Widely known among dairy men, the. Bosworth herd, is rated as one of the outstanding among ipany good herds in this section of the country, if not the.Jiatio.n.

Look for the Priceless Ingredient.' " 'But, what is the Priceless Ingredient?' asked the young man.

County Agent Speaks The dairy business is of sufficient importance in Kossuth county that we can all well (jive support to the observance of June as Dairy Month. Even though Kossuth is located in the cash grain area, it is quite a, dairy county. Nearly every farm produces a surplus of riiiry products for market. There are only a few counties, and these arc in northeast Iowa, that exceed our dairy output. Our most stable income is that from the dairy • cow. she works summer and winter and so docs the man ivVio milks her. Cream and milk checks are usually Issued • every two weeks and these add up to around 75 or 80 thousand dollars. This stimulates business for everyone.
