Studer Farm Featured On Magazine Featured on the cover of the current issue of "PUREBRED Magazine, The Business Paper of the Purebred Industry" is a full- cover aerial photograph of the Ben Studer farm near Wesley. The photograph above is the one used on the cover of the magazine, which has national distribution among purebred cattle breeders. A feature article in the magazine is as follows: The Studer family with five daughters and four sons has come a long way since Ben's father homcsteaded on the site of the cover picture at Wesley, Iowa. Along the way have been many highlights that thrill any breeder—the time'he paid $10.000 for a boar which later became Grand Champion at the National Swine Show in 1920—the starting of his purebred Angus in 19<iO which now number more than 325 head, many of which were imported, including 30 matrons. The longest established purebred herd on the Studer Stock Farms is the Scotch Shorthorn herd mentioned on page 70. It was started around 1920 and now numbers 100 head. The Ayrshire herd was established about 11 years ago and now includes sires and matrons that were largely imported. This herd of 45 includes 25 milk cows.

A farming operation of this size takes a lot of power machinery and most of it is the 4-row size, as it makes an hour of labor and tractor time cover more acres. Of special interest to livestock breeders is the double usage the Studers get out of the five.silos on the farms. In the early summer part of the silos are filled with chopped oats and hay silage. This is fed out in later summer and they are refilled in the fall with cane and corn silage for winter feeding. Although the picture shows some of the barns, it is hard to visualize their true size. The largest is 120'x40', a second is 80'x40', a third is 80'x36'. and several are open loafing-stylc barns. Both inside and outside elevators make it handy to handle and store more than 30,000 bushels of corn and small grain in the cribs and granaries. The Studer family gets ils greatest reward in purebred work when they see calf club and young farmer buyers of their seed stock enter county and state fairs and walk off with winner ribbons. and Mrs Potratz stayed for an extended visit with her daughter and husband, Mr and Mrs Loien Barker, in Cedar Rapids.
