Kiwanions Honor County Dairymen How is the dairy industry doing in Kossuth County? How many dairy herds are there in the county? How large are county dairy herds? These questions are answered in the following interview with Richard Campney of Burt, Kossuth County's Dairy Month promotion chairman. Campney and other county dairymen kicked off Dairy Month here Thursday by talking about the industry at a Kiwanis Club luncheon at the Veteran's Memorial Building. The Kiwanians honored the county's 10 recipients of Dairy Herd Improvement Association certificates for producing 10% above the state breed average for either milk or fat for the past year. COUNTY ACHIEVERS Keith Bartelt, Titonka Alvin Boettcher, Lakota Alfred Meyer, Whittemore Gerald Soderberg, Bancroft Robert Van Hove, Buffalo Center Gray Brothers, Titonka Russell Richter, Ledyard Milton Madison, Lone Rock Art Mogler, Whittemore Marvin Leigh, Algona r ° f A ' 9 ° na ' Alvin Boattcher " GALLON range. - NEED PROMOTION Campney said dairymen will appear before other service clubs in Algona and around the county as part of their Dairy Month promotion. "This is the 35th year June has been designated Dairy Month," he said. "Milk consumption is down in June and the summer months because school is out and because of the warm weather. We need the promotion." Nude Drawing Gift To Historical Society -COUNTY. IS in the state for the total number' of herds being recognized. Fayette County led the state with 48. According to Campney, the dairy industry in Kossuth County has undergone changes similar to those trends revealed in national and state statistics. National statistics show that there were about half as many 'dairy cattle in the country in 1971 as there were in 1940, but that milk production had increased in those 30 years (up from 109 billion pounds to 116 billion pounds per year) because a cow produces about twice as much milk today as one did then. State statistics show there's one dairy cow for every three that were in Iowa 30 years ago (1.4 million in 1940, 490,000 in 1970). But production has doubled in that time/The'state averages 9,100 pounds of. milk per cow compared to the national average of 9,300. Kossuth County's dairy cattle population dwindled from 10,374 in 1964 to 5,212 in 1969. A 1970 study by the Extension service placed the number of dairy herds in the county at 78. They ranged in size from three herds with five cows or less to one with 80. Most were herds of 25 cows or less. -LARGEST HERD?Perhaps the largest herd in the county this year is the 84-cow herd of Rudy and Laurel Peterson of swea City. They are one of four large DHIA herds in the county operated on a father- son(s) basis. The other are Walt Campney and son Richard of Burt with 65 to 70 cows, John Ruger and son Phil of Fenton with 65 cows, and Hilbert Bierstedt and sons of Fenton with 55 cows. "It's not that the profits involved in dairy cattle aren't good," Campney explained. "Some farmers don't like being tied to milking twice a day, or to fulfilling the sanitation restrictions." ' Campney said most county dairymen transport their raw milk to two major Grade A outlets - wells Blue Bunny in Le Mars and the Des Moines Milk Shed. He said the transportation costs can vary from 17 cents to 60 cents pei 100 pounds, and that dairymen aire presently getting; about 45 c.en|s'per CJALLON for raw mi&V After processing, the milk currently retails in the 49 cents to 59 cents per HALF Is she naughty or not? The pondering began last Wednesday when former Kossuth County Historical Society president Chester Schoby of Algona and Algona Chamber of Commerce Secretary Bill Steele arranged for a picture-taking session of a 4' by 8' nude drawing atop the public restroomsacross from the Chamber office. The dramatic color drawing is a gift to the Historical Society - one that all agree is very much a part of the county's history.. Presumably, the story of the lady's appearance begins back in tye early I940«s when $hte-was created by a German prisoner 'of war at the camp west of Algona. An attempt is currently underway to determine the artist. "When the camp was dismantled in 1946, the camp commander, a Col. Lobdell, took the fair-haired work of art with him. Since then, !^e has shown her extensively, i:.ostly in art circles in his home state of Nebraska. -$6,000 OFFERED- He has reportedly received several offers for the drawing, including one for $6,000. However, he decided instead to return the drawing to the site of its historical significance. "It is a part of the history of your city and that is where it rightfully belongs," he said. Col. Lobdell contacted Bill Dau, Sr. of Algona to ask who might be interested in preserving the drawjuig as he had for the past 25 years. Dau referred him to Schoby and the two began corresponding on the matter. Told of its worth, Schoby even traveled to Lincoln, Nebr. to view the work. He decided to accept the colonel's donation, so last week when Kirk Hayes of Druggists Mutual Insurance Co. of Algona was in Lincoln on business, he picked up the drawing for Schoby and brought it back to Algona. -HOW GOOD I Mike Foley, a Druggists' Mutual employee, was among the first Algona residents to view the drawing in its temporary storage place in the building's basement. He told his wife, who is an art instructor at O.B. Laing school here, about it. She said the drawing was probably made with chalk, charcoal and possibly crayon or water colors. "It's very good," she said.' Several V critics have reportedly placed the value of the picture above $5,000. They said the extreme detail created under less than ideal circumstances and with improvised equipment, adds ' greatly to the value of the work. -PRISON ART- The picture wasn't the only art produced in the prison camp. Eduard Kajb and others created 1/2-life size Nativity Scene figures now on display at the Kossuth County fairgrounds. When Kaib returned to Algona in 1968 to view the scene 22 years after he left them here, Col. Lobdell reportedly asked him if he knew of the artist or the picture. Kaib, who was at the camp in 1944-45 and into 1946, said he remembered neither. The camp imprisoned approximately 2,000 men. -NO PLACE FOR A LADY?In view of the established historical significance of the picture, Chamber Secretary Steele tried to place it on display in two store fronts for today's (Monday) Sidewalk Art Show. No deal. Both businesses contacted thought it was not in their best interest. Because of their reaction, the valuable picture will not be a part of this year's art show. "I decided not to go around and plead with people to take it," Steele said. "We've had nude art in our shows before last year or the year before — and nothing was said. But those were much smaller." Steele said Schoby plans a meeting of Historical Society members in the near future to determine whether the picture will be placed in its museum on Dodge Street or elsewhere. "We're just open on Sunday afternoons," Schoby said. "And most of our visitors are children." OTTOSEN Henry Meyer of Mazon, fll., spent the weekend with his parents, Mr.andMrs.MartinMeyer.
