A Promising Hofstein Calf.
Olaus Anderson, of Kandiyohi,
has purchased a bull calf, which W.
F. Schilling describes as "Minneso
ta's Best Calf." His sire is Aaggie
Cornucopia Johanna Lad No. 32,554,
known by every Holstein breeder. He
has twenty proven sons and more,
than seventy daughters with official
ly tested good milk records. The
dam of the calf is a three year old
daughter of Colantha Johanna Lad
with over fifty tested daughters. In
another column we publish a picture
of the grandmother of this calf, of
whom the following was published in
the Holstein-Friesian World:
"We appreciate the favorable com

pound mark, six days after the com

"Creamelle Vale is a very beauti
