LOOKING DOWN ON HUBER’S POND from the nearby hillside gives a
panoramic view of this recreational operation which will feature campsites for
vacationers. In addition to activities centering around the spring-fed pond,
Huber’s 30-acre campsite will offer three archery ranges and a foot-trail through
the Dogwood-dotted woodland. L - F - Photo

edged with green woods and
rolling fields.
Huber had been a dairy
nan for about 23 years, but
turned that business over to
his son Elmer W. some years
ago. He has been an active
committee member of the
County Agricultural Stabiliza
tion and Conservation Service
for the past seven years. He
said that when he took over
the farm originally the land
was in bad shape Erosion had
carved large gullies in its roll
ing fields Conservation-mind
ed, he has since repaired na
ture’s damage with terraces
and contour strips to divert
water run-off.
Now forty sites for camp
trailers are ready to go, and
he plans to add sixty more
soon. For two dollars a day,
city-weary campers can park
their trailers and relax in
this natural setting, away
from the din and dirt of
crowded cities and busy high
ways. And their two-dollar
What's New in Feeding Cattle ?
Ful-O-Pep Cattle-izer Beef Supplement
An entirely new concept in cattle nutrition opens up new profit pos
sibilities for cattlemen everywhere. Based on a whole new principle in
feeding, Ful-O-Pep Cattle-izer Beef Supplement changes the proportions
of organic acids produced in the rumen. As a result, up to 20% more
energy is available to the animal, as compared to the same amount of
regular feed without the new concept.
This extra energy means faster gains, less feeding time to market, and
considerable lower feeding costs. For thousands of cattlemen, it means
extra profits.

Huber provides a picnic table
and fireplace.

The pond, which may well
be the central attraction at
Huber’s, was constructed last
year. It is located at the low
est point in the immediate
area, and is surrounded by a
terrace of sufficient size to
prevent any amount of water
shed runoff from flooding the
pond. At its deepest point
the pond measures about ten
feet, but along one bank Hu

again this year, he stocked
the pond with 200 trout and
bass fingerlings. To encourage
production of natural food
for the fish he fertilized the
pond earlier, but feared the
murkiness this created might
be objectionable to swimmers.
Now he feeds the fish daily

Getting water to fill the
pond and to maintain it was
no problem, in fact, the prob

the pond constantly. There
are so many springs in the
area that it was necessary to

That this recreation site,
located just a short walk
from the Pequea Creek, is
also frequented by some of
nature’s larger creatures was
evident from hoof prints in
the soft sand near the pond
indicating that deer had come
down from the surrounding
hills to dnnk.

Eliminating the old-fashioned pitman comes close to
eliminating vibration that shortens the life of mow
ers! Four quiet 80 Series Mowers let you cut hay
the way you wish. Two are rear-mounted ... one
side-mounted for extra visibility and one is at
trail-type. One of them belongs in your hay plans!
