have been enriched recently by the
importation of some valuable cattle
from the Island of Guernsey, and Ore
gon's splendid Holsteins are not to be
overlooked, not by any means.
One of the most enthusiastic breed
ers of the Holstein is Henry McCall,
proprietor of the Westernwold ranch
in central Oregon. In 1912 Mr. McCall
started his present Holstein herd by
getting a number of Holsteins from
New England. As time went on he
developed this herd until he now has
some famous cows and has substan
tially aided in raising the standard of
the breed in this state.
Cows Iut on Test.
Three years after the "Westernwold
ranch received its .start in' raising
Holsteins, the cows were put on test
and the testing has gone on - ever
since with the result that every fe
male in the herd has at least one
yearly record or is now on test.
The "Westernwold herds have never
been culled and all the animals owned
by the ranch, except two, were born
in the stables of. the ranch.
One of the first cows to be run on
yearly test was Florence Idella
Sharp, No. 232054. She freshened at
four years of age and made 24,667
I pounds of milk, and 103 pounds of
utter. This record won . her first

money for the year.
Championship Still Held.
-This record was the state record for
the breed. But this same cow has just
completed a record of 27,235 pounds
of milk and 1146 pounds of butter,
which still makes her champion of the
Another heavy producer is Fairview
Johanna Korndyke, No. 16S7SI. As a
junior three-year-old she made a
yearly record of 20.462 pounds of
milk and S10 pounds of butter. At
four and a half she made 20.140 milk
and S30 butter and she has just com
pleted her third consecutive record of
26.396 pounds milk and 1025 butter.
Although the ranch doesn't take the
seven-day tests seriously, still these
tests are recorded and as a sample
they have Tulip Pietertje West view

Farms of all .sizes and in all parts
of the county are being sold and
considerable city property also is
changing hands. Many of those who
are purchasing land in this vicinity
now have come to Oregon recently
from the middle west.

ASHLAND, Or., Aug. 1. (Special.)
Owing to the freeze in northern
Oregon and Washington orchard dis
tricts last winter which played havoc
with this year's peach crop in par
ticular, practically all of the Ashland
peach crop will be shipped to north
ern points instead of to California.
as has been the case in past years, ac
cording to Manager A. C. Brjggs, of
the Ashland Fruit & Produce asso
ciatlon. Mr. Briggs states that the
association has been deluged with re
quests for fruit from northern buyers
and that' this summer and fall's crop
here is practically placed now.
That the Ashland peach crop wil
be about 40 per cent of normal is Mr.
Brigg's opinion after interviewing
numerous growers. The early peaches
are beginning to come in, but the bulk
of the peach crop will not be ready
for some time yet.
