Brandy Held's mini-Hereford brings back memories

By Michael Watson

Seeing cattle in the snow and bitter cold always takes me back to the mid-1970s winters. We still had beef cattle and my twice daily job was to bundle up, head to the barn and feed the cattle.

This morning, searching for a piece of history, I rediscovered this article from an old Adair County News, 6 November 1941, on "Youthful Stock Raisers". There are several names here that readers will remember:
Youthful Stock Raisers Exhibit Calves at Show:
Members of the 4-H, future Farmers and Utopia Clubs are showing calves at the Louisville 20th Annual Fat Cattle Show, which is now being held at the Bourbon Stock Yards. Eighteen calves, which will be sold at auction on Friday, were taken to Louisville on Tuesday. The following exhibited: John S. Collins, Glensfork; Frances Cumbaa, Montpelier; Ralph Reece, Montpelier; Bert Antle, Jr., Garlin; Kenneth Ballou, Garlin; Doris Browning, Columbia; Jean and Kathleen Dohoney, Columbia; Clyde and Carl Hutchison, Zion; Mary and Tommy Murrell, Columbia; and Shirley Glasgow, Milltown.
