don’t get your calvei started
'well, you may as well get out of
the dairy business, ’’ he says.
And obviously the calves at
Kleffers are well cared for.
At present, there are 180 cows
milking with 30 dry and the
rest of the total heifers and
calves. After the fire they sold
their milking herd so the present
i herd includes 160 first calf
heifers, some of them coming in
with second calf. Grant says it
was quite an episode last sum
mer milking 160 first calf heif
ers; doing field work and build
ing the barn. But he still would
rather work like that than be
laid up with infected tonsils like
he was when interviewed Tues

Bananas Belter Than Ever
Today bananas are shipped
from Central America on air
conditioned ships. Provision for
heating and refrigeration makes
it possible to hold the bananas
at 54 degrees at all times. When
the bananas arrive in this coun
try, they're transferred to re
frigerated train cars or trucks
for the trip to market. All this
tender loving care pays off in
better quality bananas.
