It is, with regret that we chroni
cle the announcement of a public
sale of one of the best herds ofV
Jerseys in the Willamette ' valley.
Owing to other pressing business,
the fine herd of A. J. C. C. Jerseys i
of Ross C. Nelson, of Independence,
will be sold at public auction on
October 26. Mr. Nelson bought of
the Chas. Miller herd five cows seven
years ago and these were deep la the
St. Lambert and Jefferson Stoke Po
gis blood. Since starting his herd
he has never sold a female and now
has one of the very best of milk-producing
herds in Oregon. Most of
the heifers in this sale are out of Up
right's Chief, son of Chief Engineer,
of which W. E. McEldowney, mana
ger of the Hazel Fern farm, says:
"We consider Chief Engineer the
greatest sire of producers in the
west, and I would advise dairymen
who have sons or grand-sons, daugh
ters or grand-daughters, of Chief En
gineer not to part with them." The
heifers are bred to Dorinda's Grand
son of Peer's Surprise. This cow,
Peer's Surprise held the world's rec-
crd for butter fat for a short time
last spring. This shows what the
buyers at this sale will get in blood
lines that are proven at the churn
and pail. No dairyman can afford
to miss this sale. Independence is
easily reached b'y the west side S. P.
R. R. from Portland and all points
north, and from the east side line
south of Albany by change at Albany,
and by the Falls City line from Sa
lem. The cattle are in fine condition
and a beautiful sight to look upon,
and dairymen are being offered the
chance of a lifetime to get some fine,
well bred animals - of known merit.
