The Seventh Year in 4-H
My 4-H Story for 1958:
This is my last year in club work because I plan on attending Valparasio University this fall. I am eighteen years old and live on a farm near Guttenberg. I am a member of the trinity Lutheran Church in Guttenberg and am the Treasurer of the Walther League. I was unable to attend all our club meetings and other 4-H activities this year because I was working out for Norbert Walz to secure funds so I could go to college.
This year I have a cow entered in the production contest. This year was her first record so it was not the highest. I fed my cow a ration of corn and cob meal 4 parts and 1 part oats. Feeding and managing this cow the past year has taught me a lot that will help me in future years.
This year I exhibited the grand champion Jersey at the county fair and I also showed the reserve. My calf took first place honors in the produce of dam class. Our barn was awarded first place in cleaness and actractiveness.
