Forest, Wisconsin For the Ca
nadian Senator, former Minister
of Agriculture, this was a most
satisfying climax to a dream
that started in 1957.
Senator Hays addressed the
group with an explanation of
the development of the Hays
Converter. “I used Holsteins,”
explained Senator Hays, “be
cause that’s where I found some
of the characteristics I wanted ”
Hays started his project with
the selection of eight sons of a
3,000-pound Holstein bull,
Spring Farm Fond Hope, noted
for siring daughters with a but
terfat test of 4 percent, but not
the high milk flow of the aver
age Holstein. These cattle had
large frames, but with some
thickness or beef qualities not
often seen in Holsteins They
had sound, desirable udders and
good feet The eight bulls were
mated to a group of 300 Here
ford cows owned by Allan Bak
ei’s Bar U Ranch, a neighbor to
Hays, for a two-year period The
Baker cows had a reputation of
being large, thrifty, hardy cat
tle sired by top bulls obtained
at the yearly Calgary Bull Sales.
The resulting crossbred heifeis

were all bred to the Hereford
Certified Meat Sire, Silver
Prince 7P He is a long, up
standing Heieford bull weigh
ing approximately 2,400 pounds
His steer sons have gained 2 72
pounds per day.
Hays stated, “We needed
more hardiness, particularly in
wintering ability of the cow
herd,” as his reason for adding
Brown Swiss to the develop
ment of his breed He introduc
ed the Brown Swiss through
four grandsons of the founda
tion mother of the breed, Jane
of Vernon. She was a great pro
ducer and a national show win
ner that had a reported “perfect
udder ” She lived to be 17 years
of age The Swiss bulls, also
weighing approximately 2,400
pounds, were out of 1,800-pound
dams They were bred to a se
lected gioup of 100 Hereford fe
males and their daughters join
ed the herd Fiom then on,
‘their kind were bred to then
kind,” Hays said
Since 1962, Senator Harry
Hays established the standard
that no bull be used unless he
had a rate of gain of at least 3 5
pounds per day and weighed
1,100 pounds at 12 months of
“Cows must have good legs
and feet, ones that don’t need
trimming,” he said “Also cows
must be good milkers, with

Poultry Lots To Be Identified
Throughout Slaughter Process
The U S Department of Agri
culture proposed to amend Fed
eral poultry inspection regula
tions to require pouitry slaugh
terers to identify lots of poul
try received from individual
producers, handlers, or growers
throughout the slaughter pro
USDA’s Consumer and Mar
keting Service said that slaugh
ter plants subject to Federal
inspection requirements would
have to furnish inspectors with
names and addresses of produc
ers, handlers or growers and a
head count of' lots of poultry
Plants would also assist inspec
tors by keeping records of birds
condemned for specific causes
within a lot
This information would assist
inspectors in the inspection of
birds originating from an identi
fied source of diseased or other
wise abnormal poultry flocks
The proposed regulations
would require C&MS to give
condemnation information to
producers to help them take im
mediate steps to correct the
disease or abnormal condition
Text of the proposal appeared
in the Nov 4 Federal Register.
Comments m two copies should
be sent by Feb 2, 1970 to the
Hearing Clerk, Room 112-A,
U.S Department of Agricul
ture, Washington, D. C 20250,
where they will be available for
public inspection.
Copies of the proposal will be
available from the Consumer
Protection Programs Services
Staff, Consumer and Marketing
Service, U S Department of
Agriculture, Washington, D. C.
Put first things first and you’ll
be so busy ai ranging stuff that
you’ll nevei get anything done.
