William P. Anderson. Writes Authoritatively on Ob-
Amarlllo, Juno 30, 1908.
Editor Dally Panhandle;
Id answer to your request to wrIH
you what and bow I know about the
effect of the exihlbits and the char
actcr of tho breeding of the Out Door
Jlereford herd of cattle; 1 will Buy
that while there are several other
liorda of registered Hereford cattle on
tn plains In tno Panhandle, of botTi
volume and merit, that unlquo in the
Hereford cattle breeding world In tho
Out-Door herd of Hereford cattlo
founded by John Hutson, an heredi
tary cross country horse and cnttlu
breeder of lCngland, an Importing
agent of high cIumh homes and Here
ford cattlo for eastern American
treedera contemporary with and a
patron of the late George, Morgan, of
Anxiety, Kudolph add the Crove
3rd fame, the three bulla of a se
lection which madfl auch wonderful
Impress on Hereford cattle of Ameri
ca; export cattlo buyer for Armour
ft. Co., on Chicago and Kansas C!t
markets, tutor ranch manager on
western public domain, rounding up
permanently at the old T Anchor
headquarters at tho Junction of the
Terra Blanco and Palo Duro, one of
the moat fertile and at the name time
most picturesque portions ot the
Panhandle of Texna, whoro for nearly
a quarter of a century he has been.
Contemporary with the progressive
rattle raisers whoso successes In the
development of a superior class of
ITeef producing animals has boeomo
famous throughout livestock circles,
I any tnlquo la the character of this
g'tat herd of Hereford cattle frora
the fact that it is the only one that
I know of In this or any other coun
try cf th Hereford breed that has
been kept Intact from atart to the
present, without distribution or dis
persion. There are over 100 calves
of this year's birth to bo registered
from this heard already his season,
while there will be 180 head of cows
and heifers In the several harems to
be bred this season. I mean by this
that nunc of the femalea have ever
boon sold out of the Out-Door Here
ford herd. Ot course the surplus
males have been widely distributed,
not a few of which have contributed
to keeping up the high standard of
Panhandle cattle among the fancy
rattle feeders of the older atutei.
But the females, nearly 300 regis
tered, of the most approved aTralns
of Hereford breeding, are here all
tinder the .e, lllui.tratlng the art of
the breeder In his work with the
forces of nature.
In another particular does Itils
wonderful herd of cattle stand out
alone In its very conception, Inas
much as the slro of its foundation
waa selected out 0f ten different arf
tnals purchased from the most ap
proved strains of blood In ralfhood
and rsirel to mnturjty until an Ideal
was socured which proved to be a
double dipped Healod, and this ani
mal was kept until his three year
old form before the owner saw fit to
surround him with proper mating.
It is needless to say that the animal,
about the tenth that had been se
lected and developed, was a Tjrr
Strike indeed, he name of the bull
as suggested by Frank Hastings, as
The wonderful bone, evenegs of
contour and beef conformation, with
remarkable scale which this animal
carried from calf hood to greatest
maturity, with the power of trans
mission of these characteristics, is In
evidence throughout the Out-Door
herd. In fact there la no other herd
of registered cattle of any treed
where the student of pedigree can
have such an object lesson as Is ex
hibited fcy the pratlcally Intact pres
ence of these 300 head of all ages of
pedigreed Hereford cows and heifers,
all of which embrace the very cream
of Hereford blood, consistent with
Tboth the American and "British fan
ciers. By way of illustration It is
enough to say that there is probably
one herd in America that may have
as much and even more of the Anx
iety blood numerically speaking, than
the Out Door Hereford herd. but none
have more that Is better Interblended
than Mr. Hutson'a hri.
It is not the purpose of the writer
( Indulge 4Vmmm srlTtWIiaa of
the superiority of any Individual's
Judgment over another nor presume
to advance opinions that aru either
In fa 11 1 hie or absolute, and It Is ouly
fair to the casual render and tho
Hereford breeders especially to ex
plain upon what I liaHo my conjec
ture when I Imply that this la the
only herd of purebred cattle In
America that has been bred, so far at
least, for the sole Improvement of the
breed alone. That this fart may be
due largely to the circumstances of
the owner's acquiring large bodies of
land at low prices In a favored dis
trict, tno advance In value and the
cultivation of which has yielded
large profits, which has enabled Vr'i
breeder to Indulge his fancy, ther0 Is
no doubt, and It Is quite probable
that there are other breeders of my
acquaintance who ar0 as enthusiastic
and capable and who might have
obtained to as great success as the
breeder of tho Out Door Hereford
herd. Thus called from the fact
that these cattlo have been reared
out of doors enduring the same
weather conditions ns other range
cattle, which pro-emlrionlly fit hem
with tho hardihood for the purpose
for which the breeder intended
For a qunrtcr of a century, com
mencing with the early 70's It was
my good fortune under the patron
age of John B. fthennan, the master
spirit which uullded up the modern
livestock market system as the man
ager of the Union Stockyards, Chi
cago, to be tho traveling livestock
agent and promoter of fine M0:'k in
dustry, and in such capacity was the
accredited correapodent of one or
tho other great Chicago dally papers
or the Associated Press. In the line
Of auch work 1 assisted In tho prep
aratlon of what I believe to bo tin
first premium list wherein Hereford
rattle were listed in an agricultural
fair catalogue In America, and
this work was largely duo to the
suggestion of John Hutson who at
that time was the importing agent of
Adams Earl, or as the herd was fam
oiiKly known as that of Karl &
Stuart. The fair waa held at I,a
fayette, Ind. From that time
through all the fairs and the fat
Block shows I have been familiar
w ith the success of the Hereford cat
tle breeders In their exhibits before
the American agricultural public
Prior to thla at the very commend?
nient of the Importation upon which
tho present epoch commences, of the
successful Introduction of Herefords
into America, the management ot
tho Chicago stockyards took an en
couraging Interest in the importation
of thla valuable beef breed. It was
tho talk that T. L. Miller had with
John B. Shennan which led him to
make his importing experiments and
upon the announcement by wire of
the expected arrival of the first im
portation I waa sent by Mr. Shen
nan to Beecher, 111., and was present
wuen they arrived and published it
according to an account of their
breeding and conjectural public ben
efit, given me by the Importing
agent, who selected and brought
them to America, the vetaran cattle
breeder, Win, Powell, now the own
er of a large plains bred registered
Hereford herd at Channlng, Texas. 1
only apeak of these things to qual
ify as one who believes that he has
bad sufficient exporltnee to warrant
an expression of opinion on a sub
ject which refers to a cult which at
best Is but a mere handful when
compared to the body politic.
Throughout all theso years of the
wondrous development of this
branch of industry John Hutson has
been contemporaneous with George
Morgan, Chas. " Culbortson, Adams
Earl, T. L. Miller and others,
earnest, public spirited men who
havo so largely contributed to the
upbuilding of domestic animal cul
ture. Therefore as un disinterested
observer and a lover and a student
of both domestic and wild animals
1 feel warranted In publicly assert
ing that in the several divisions of
the Out Door Herd of Herefords can
b found a greater number of desir
able combinations from the true fan-
cler'a standpoint than In any herd
In this country, or even England as
shown by the herd book. I have la
mind an Ideal bull calf out of Sweet
flerene 146286, got by Missouri
Prince 172425, Majestic 138O0,
dam Wlgfi-y 138218 out of Wlgga
13S219 by I'oht Obit 75280, sired by
Gamecock 81832, got by Post Obit
7.r0S0, Gamecock's dam runs back
through the (.ilpsy Marys to Olpsy
Queen 89j7 by Cupid 7631. Wigga's

This pedigree of Itself would ap

eminently successful efforts of the
Hereford breeder In America In forg

Hereford. Kng., by Gamecock 81 832,
got by Winsome Prince, still further
augments tho value of Post Obit
blood In this herd, and I believe to
auch an extent ana along such lines
of demonstration that such fanciers
cannot get such Ideal combinations
of such blood even In England, and
it Is a particular strain some of our
best Amorlntn and English breeders
must have If they keep up this lino
of progressive breeding. s,
Early in Jun lust season, before
the agricultural shows had commen
ced or even conjectured, Mr. Hutson
attended the Hoxlo sale at Thornton,
purchasing the very cream of the
offering, a few Perfection heifers,
and so Impressed was ho by their
quillty and scale that ho bought sev
eral moro at private treaty and a
cow or two In calf to that now fam
ous son of Dale, since Perfection
Fairfax tho brother of these heifers,
and a son of Perfection was the win
ner of the Hereford sweepstakes at
the principal state fairs and the great
International show at Chicago In DV
cember, 1907.
Of all the lessons of last season In
exploitation of the resources of tho
Panhandle of Texas, thore was none
from which 1 have heard so much as
that which went with the exhibition
of the Hereford bulla from the Out
Door Hereford herd of John Hutson
at Kansas City, Fort 'Worth and at
Denver cattlo shows. The purpose In
making this exhibit was almply to
show the scale and general breeding
character of the herd. All the bulls
except thoso too young for service
were used throughout the entire sea
son In the Out Door breeding herds,
the largest of which, Strike Twenty
had run wita the cattlo and wad
taken up about a month before Kxe
show. Although not In fancy show
condition all of these bulls' were suf
ficiently well fit to get inside of the
money in all of the entries and at the
same time teach the livestock public
of America on the impression that
had to a certain extent prevailed Ju
the public markets of th8 country
"that blooded livestock of all kinds
deteriorated In scale and growth on
the ghort grass of the Parhandle ot
Texas." This false notion of com
mercialism, due largely to the old
method of starving cattlo through
the winter, hud been partially ex
ploded by tho wonderful gain made
by fairly kept Panhandle steers when
summered a single season on Kan
sas grass. So much greater has been
the gain In weight and profit over
the 0,d fashioned and fallacious no
tion that two winters of Montana
climate was necessary to get growto
and develop a Panhandle steer, aa
to completely revolutionize this
oranc:h of trade. But to th0 general
livestock publbic, especlaly the woirli?
be' stock farmer of the Panhandle
who had hesitated until these speci
mens from the Out Door Hereford
herd practically demonstrated that
properly bred Biilnia'a not only kept
their thnraier and scale, but aver
aged better form on tho more nutri
tious grass and by the absence of
Irritating agencies and more change
able conditions of a lower altitude
In any of the northern climates In
fact the presence of these cattlo In
the show rings surrounded by n mul
titude of Intelligent people attracted
from all parts of the country, was
an object lesson or a protracted Il
lustration of what could he done In
an ideal climate adjusted by altitude
to render It the jest situation for the
healthful rearing; of anlmalg nnd
homo-making offered In the temper
ate ono on tho Western Hemisphere.
