Artificial Insemination Used hi 75 Kossuth Herds to Date Artificial insemination is beyond the experimental stage. In the opinion of the extension division of Iowa Stale Colege, artificial insemination is here to stay, and an accepted practice. To verify that fact, • this newspaper was amazed to discover from Lester Gingerich, who managed the Kossuth Artificial Breeders, that 75 herds' have been serviced by this method in the past year. About 400 cows in all have been introduced to this new method of breeding. "We have only serviced Holsteins to date," said Gingerich, "but we expect to be able to service other breeds soon." Among the herds Ihus serviced have been those of Ralph Brown, Algotta; C. M. Gross, Lone Rock; Gerald Bahling, Titonka; Art Droess- lef, Bancroft; Virgil Loucks, Ledyard; Fred Tigges, Burl! and the' Ai A. Dreyer herd at Fenion. There are many others, of course. Selected bulls are used for procuring semen, all selected from good foundation slock, Refrigeration can keep the semen a week. Gingorich keeps it an average of not over three days. The local organization has had successful insemination in about 65 of the cases the first time, which compares very favorably with the natural method. - 1 WESLEY GIRLS GRADUATED IN NURSES CLASS Wesley, June 5—Mr. and Mrs. John Lickteig, daughter Shirley, sons Jerry, Jack and Don, Mr. and Mrs. Urban Lickteig, Mrs. Anna Loebig, Irene-Loobig, Jane Hauptman, Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Lickteig, Clear Lake, Mrs. Clarence Ward, and Mrs. J.
