WHEN NELLIE GIVES MILK HER DAY HAS JUST BEGUN because nine-year-old Phyllis Marie Miller, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Miller, Route 1, Gregory, thinks Nellie should exercise periodically. Nellie has other ideas, but it doesn't do her any good because Phyllis climbs on one of those stumps you see in the left background and slides on her back. The steering is done with the stick Phyllis is holding in her right hand in this picture.

"BERTHA" PAID HER WAY: Although she's not registered, this grade Jersey on the Henry J. Oulmann farm, S. State Rd., has a name. "Bertha" produced more butterfat last year than any other cow on test with the two county herd improvement associations. Her total was 673.9 pounds. Although her milk production - 10, 935 pounds - was less than a number of other cows, she filled enough milk bottles to keep a small family healthy for four or five years.

ALFALFA FIELD: Scio township soil is ideal for alfalfa growing. Alfalfa makes a good hay crop for almost all farm animals when mixed with other grasses. It is of value, too, as a soil improver. Wheat is another crop which grows in abundance in the township. This photograph was taken near Zeeb Rd.
