"Makers of Famous Sargent Feeds" TOREBY FARMS HERD WAS STARTED IN 1948 Maintained for the purpose of "Baby Beef" production, the pure-bred Black Angus cowherd of Toreby Farms, Atgona, is a notable example of good beef-raising in Kossuth county. Toreby Farms is owned and operated by lagerstrom and Juckniess, and '.s located southwest of Burt. The present pure-bred herd, started in 1948 with a herd of 17 cows primarily of "Black Cap" breeding, is maintained on about 140 acres of alfalfa brome rotation pastures, divided as equired for haying and grazing purposes. A 32 acre blue grass pasture also serves the home farm near Burt. The 1956 program of this Black Angus herd cor.-s for the breeding of 78 cows. The herd is headed by three bulls, Emperor of Downside (Scotch breeding), Blackcap of Torebv, and Eileen- mere Sunset 174th. The production of "Baby Beef" calls for a weaning weight of calves at 450 to 500 Ibs. at six months of age and a full feed of 220 to 240 days to a weight of 960 - 1100 Ibs. All cows in the Toreby Farms pure-bred herd are brucellosis- tested vaccinated and clean. All heifers are blood-tested and calfhood vaccinated against brucellosis, and are also regularly vaccinated against shipping fever and black leg. Black Angus cattle have enjoyed a growing popularity over past years, and today, together with other fine herds of Shorthorns and Herefords, are prominently seen in pastures and feed lots of Kossuth county.
