EWE'D BE SURPRISED
Editor, Franklin Press;
In the fall of 1931 the first class
of vocational agriculture of Frank
lin high school held a fair. This
fair was made up of the home pro
jects of the students, such as hogs,
cattle, sheep, corn, etc.
I, as a member of that class, en
tered a 1J4 year old ewe in the
sheep contest. The judge awarded
first prize to a ewe owned by Don
Henderson on the grounds that his
ewe was a better breeder than
mine, which had never brought a
Since that time my ewe has pre
sented me with seven husky lambs.
The latest arrivals, on Feb. 12, were
equally husky ewe triplets. The
proud mother Impartially owns all
of them and gives sufficient milk
She should, though, for she has
an udder as large as that of a
small cow. That sounds pretty big;
however, if anyone does not believe
this, they may come and see.
Bring on your good breeder, Don.
