Bill Dudding, driving for the Menke truck line of Bancroft, had arrived at the McGuire farm home with the load of cattle from Highmore, S. D. As the cattle were being unloaded they became frightened and took off in all directions. About half of them were cor- raled bafore they found their way out of the McGuire corn field while more escaped to the Kenny Studer farm approximately six miles east, near Lakota. Mr. Studer headed these off and locked them in his cow yard. Five others were located at the for two years. Kenny Heldorfer farm about 5 miles southeast of the McGuire home, and at least two are still missing. If anyone knows the whereabouts of these two cattle the McGuires would appreciate a call.

For 30 successive years now, brothers Chuck, Ken and Dude McGuire have bought cattle from the Carl Christensen cattle range in Highmore.

S. primary paved highway; also on a railroad; must have all utilities a* water, etedtidfcr t«i natural gas available at th«* petty line; > property Must good drainage and be flood level; and. must be located in what can be termed ah ilidiia* trial area.
