A visit to the Vernon Munkers
farm last week by county agent
N. C. Anderson, revealed to him
an outstanding job done by Mar
ilyn Munkers in raising triplet
lambs from a ewe carried as a
4-H project. While the story
might be old to some of our 4-H
members it Is still worth report
ing. The lambs were born Dec
ember 16, unexpectedly, but were
found by Mr Munkers early
enough to save them. After
warming them up they were ta
ken to the ewe to find that she
would not accept but two of the
three. Getting out her project lit
erature on raising orphan lambs,
Marilyn followed directions to
the last degree.
She now has three healthy
lambs, two of which she intends
to fatten out for the Oregon
Wheat Growers League fat stock
show and sale to be held at The
Dalles June 5, 6 and 7.
