PAGE TWENTY-FOUR THE GETTYSBURG TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1974 Corinne, Record-Breaking Holstein Cow, Is Guest Of Honor At Dairy Farm Party By PAUL CARPENTER Associated Press Writer ROARING SPRING Pa (AP)--Kenneth Mowry is rec- ·gnized as a \ery successful dairy fanner around this south- central Pennsylvania comrnu- Hity. A Niagara of milk flows from his 180 cows He's ne\er quite run into any- fcing like what happened Wednesday, though About 2,000 persons from all over the country gathered at his farm to honor one of the cows, a world record milk producer. "We've had some co\\s that broke some national records before, but we ne\er had a par ty for them, not like this " he said FROM FAR AND WIDE Representati\es of agricul tural organizations from Vermont, Wisconsin and other states, along with officials and dairymen from around Pennsylvania, spent the day touring Mowry's farm, presenting him with honors and gazing at a walking, mooing milk factory-Mowry Prince Corinne Cortnne is a 1,600-pound Hoi stem that as of Wednesday had produced 50,759 pounds of milk over a one-year period She's owned jointly by Mowry and bis father, Clarence Mowry At the age of 10 years, Corinne is supposed to be a little over the hill But she's far ahead of the average American Holstein cow, which takes nearly four years to come up with that much milk "She just has the -mil to milk," Mowry said, noting the trait runs through his herd "We have maybe ten 30,000- pound cows " SURPRISED BY CROWD Wednesday's recognition program was sponsored by the Holstein-Friesian Association of America, headquartered in Brattleboro, Vt. The documentation of the milk yields was done by representatives of the American Breeders Service in De Forest, Wise. Most of those in the army of visitors at the farm were just dairymen from Pennsylvania, however. "It w$ exciting I was surprised that big a crowd showed up," Mowry said Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary James A McHale presented the Mowry's with a special citation from Gov Shapp, but went without a milking contest he'd been boosting with US Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz Butz did not show up Cormne is milked 365 days a ear unlike most cows that only give milk during a 305-day lactation period During Co- nnne's lactation period, she gave 44144 pounds--also a world record Her \ield has gone as high as 182 pounds of milk a da That apparently justifies her big appetite Corinne eats 150 pounds of gram and alfafa even da\ LOS ANGELES (AP (AP) "It's the best country in the world" said Australian-born singer Helen Reddy after she became a naturalised citizen of the United States. Miss Reddy, whose hit "I Am Woman" became an anthem for the women's liberation mo\ement, broke into tears halfway through the oath Tuesday at a ceremony attended by her husband Jeff Wald, daughter Traci, 11, and Mayor Thomas Bradley "I feel like I'd like to have a cup of tea and a good cry," said Miss Reddy who immigrated in 1966 from Australia The New FUR-TRIMMED SWEATERS THE COUNTRY STORE Bisrlcrville P* Open E\er Night S A M to 9 F M To Serve Or Take Owt HOMEMADE PIZZA STEAMED CLAMS STEAMED SHRIMP * and Your Favorite BEER in 6-pick or Quart BoHlfi PLAZA RESTAURANT Lincoln Square Gettysburg, Pa.
