How they make birds appear and disappear (and they are real birds too, not props that can be pulled around on wires or folded into walking canes) is some- thing that will mystify you for the rest of your life. The act opens with a burst of music, a quick hello and these two attractive young people take off on a whirlwind trip of things magical. It happens fast — it happen...

FAIR VIEW NEWS — Pa«e 9 iaP-Gr BEEF CATTLE EXHIBIT A BRIEF RESUME OF SOME OF THE FARMS AND RANCHES EXHIBITING AT THE FAIR W-J Farms in Weimar Limousin Breeder Quinns' "New Breeds Farm" Exotic Breeder MIL MAR FARMS Brown Swiss Breeder MORGAN FARMS Certified Santa Gertrudis Cattle Limousin breeding on the W-J Farms in Weimar was started in 1971. After learning the technique of insemination, they began breeding to Red Angus, cross Brahman and Red Poll cows. Some half-blood Lim- ousin heifers were also acquired. On hand at the W-J Farms at present are 14 three quarter Limousin heifers and a number of three-quarter Bulls. Mr. Werner G. Baur, owner of the W-J, said the reasons they settled on the Limousin were their ease in calving, fast growth, high fertility, dressing percen- tage, more red meat and less fat for the housewife. Also, the Limousin is well muscled and marbles out well. The Limousin originally came from France and existed on very poor land, which enables them to do very wel...

With the introduction of the Beef Heifer Show, our large stock barn needed a wall stretcher. So, with the aid of our friends, the Green Thumb group, we converted the hog barn into a brand new 4H and FFA Dairy Show building It hus it's own supply of water, a wash rack for cattle, and a sign to identify the future dairymen from the Beef Show.
