Visitor From Poland
Attends Guernsey Day
“Lancaster County farmers aie
fortunate. They have lots of feed
for their cattle They get lots of
milk Everything is all light for
their families ”
This message for local farmers
came from Edmond Apolinarski,
Wschowa, Poland, via an interp
reted interview following the
Guernsey Field Day Tuesday.
Speaking German and being in
terpreted by K. D. Linde, Local
Guernsey Breeder with a good
command of the language, Apo
linarski, commented on the very
good corn crop here because of
the many rains. In 'Poland they
have corn only for silage as
there is not enough sun and hot
nights to mature the crop.
Edmund is paying a return
visit to Mr and Mrs. Henry Hack
man, Manheim Rl, who visited
Poland in 1967 The visitor had
also been here in 1962
In comparing his foimer visit
with now, Apolinarski said he
sees more mechanical devices
and less hand labor on our farms
“Your new farms,” he said, “are
very modern and very expen
sive ” He also noted more and
larger bioiler operations
In Poland, Edmond is the di
rector of 7,500 acres oi govern
ment farm land about 40 miles
south of Poznan, Poland. The
vast acreage covered by this
government complex is divided
into 12 farms They have 500 lab
orers taking care of 1,600 dairy
cows, heifers and bulls, as well
as 3,000 sheep and a large num
ber of swine
