E» Householder home were Grand Champion Bull Blood Descendant Kossuth Herd Grand Champion bull of the National Polled Shorthorn Congress at Columbus, Neb., Alauna Proud Viking, is pictured above. The animal sold for $1,000. The entry was of unusual interest to an Algona man. Ken Seely. The Seelys were partners for five years with Earl S. Girton, at a farm near Vinton. Iowa. The' partnership was dissolved March 1, 1955, and the Seelys moved back, to Algona. The Shorthorn herd was divided between the partners, the Seelys bringing their portion of the herd to the Seely farm in Plum Crek township. The grand champion entry was calved March 21, 1955, from a cow in the same herd which had, however, gone to Girton. In other words, the blood ancestry of this grand champion is now on the Seely farm here, and only by a quirk of fate the prize winner was entered by the Vinton partner. Pictured above, left to right, are James Adams, Dothan, Alabama, president of the National Polled Shorthorn Society, presenting the ribbon to Earl Girton, while< William Anderson of West Liberty, who showed the animal, looks on.
