Tuesday occurred the meeting of the
Tillamook County Holstein Breeders’
association at the ranch home of Mr.
and Mrs. John Schilds, about three
miles east of Tillamook, and a fair rep
resentation of the society was present.
Before loach was served the members
of the association made a tour of in
spection of th e ranch, looking over the
well-kept dairy barn w ith its modern
improvements, and also viewing the
herd in the fields. Mr. Schilds has 70
acres ot well improved land and is milk
ing 32 cows. This ranch was at one
time a portion of the Kunze homestead
and was purchased by Mr. Schilds on
tim e payments for $21,000 less than
eight years ago and today Mr. Schilds
has his ranch all pri 1 for, and if we
were to judge would say th a t Mr. and
Mrs. Schilds were in clover, so far as
After returning from the fields we
found th a t during our absence the
ladies had been busy and our eyes
viewed two long tables erected in the
orchard ladened with everything that
could be thought of to tickle and ap-
IN e stu c c a
j pease the appetite of the assembly.
After lunch, Mr. Kunze, president of
the society, called the meeting to or
der and Mr. Noise, secretary, made his
report. Mr. H athaw ay was then elected
a member of the board of trustees.
The chair stated th a t the county had

one member from each agricultural o r
ganization and by unanimous voteC has.

A lengthy discussion arose regarding
the county fair board listing grade sires.
The board of trustees was instructed to
interview the fair board with a view of
having them change the list giving the
prize for a full blood calf.
Mr. Folk discussed the importance of
a dairy sire. A good sire, said he, is
the larger and more im portant part of
the herd. Since the producing of large
qt am ities of milk is not natural, but ac
quired, it is only by constantly selecting
the best types that this acliicment is re
tained or increased. To retain th e m ilk
ing qualities of a good grade herd a t a
uniform level, it is necessary to use a
bull better tired th a n the cows. E n
deavoring to save money in the purchase
of a sire is not economical.
D. T. Werschkul was called upon to
give his experienc in the m a tte r of
changing from a common herd to that
of blooded stock. He gave figures to
show th e great benefit derived from
breeding up. He told of the tim e when
he and his neighbors changed sires to
improve their herd and wlmt little, if
any, effect it had in the way of improve
ment. T hat he soon conceived the idea
that a fall blood sire was necessary and
he purchased a t the Lewis & Clark fair
a registered Holstein and proceeded to
