NO. 11 Of A CENTENNIAL YEAR SERtES Presenting The Farmers of Kossuth County C. C. Baas One of Kossuth's pioneer farmers is C. C. Bans . .. who has for exactly 50 years—half a century—farmed the same 240 acres of fertile Iowa farm land In Wliltte- more township. Now 72, Mr. Baas came to the place »s a boy of 9, when the land was "nothing but prairie", and he Is still active in the working of the farm though two of his boys, George and Lester, arc the mainstays on the Haas farm. Two other Baas sons, Alvin and Harold, live in West Bend. During his 50 years of farming in Kossuth county, Mr. Baas has seen and been a part of all the changes that have transformed this nrfrth Iowa section into one of the nation's greatest agricultural areas. Since 1919, a specialty on the Baas farm has been the raising of an average of 100 Hampshire hogs, which have won honors at Algona, IlumbolcU and Spencer shows. Crops arc good this year on the Baas farm. Whittemore township soil doesn't change, even in 50 years. I IOWA FACTS This is FARM SAFETY WEEK in Iowa—just as it is throughout the nation.
