Helene indicated that it was
really quite a job to get the
information needed to put
the catalogue together,
adding that “that is when
OPC records really come in
handy.”
Helene and Bob have also
just completed a directory of
all the Jersey breeders in
Pennsylvania. The directory
will be available to Ex
tension Services, AI units,
and anyone who is interested
in buying a Jersey. “We put
a lot of work into that
project,” she told me, “but I
enjoyed it. It was a lot of
fun.”
The Dreisbach children,
Patty age ten and Carol age
nine, are both 4-H members
and handle their own ■
animals. “As a family,”
Helene pointed out, “we are
production oriented. We are
most interested in high
producing cows, but we do go
to a few fairs just for fun.”
April Green, a neighbor of
the Dreisbach’s originally
handled most of their show
string, but Helene noted that
she and the girls are
becoming increasingly in
volved in showing the
animals. They show mainly
at the Kutztown, Reading,
Allentown, and Bloomsburg
fairs, and at the girls* 4-H
District Show; and a sizeable
number of blue ribbons on
one wall in the large family
kitchen indicate that they
are frequently winners.

Helene is a member of the
Board of Directors for the
Berks County Dairy
Association, and as we
discussed the upcoming
Dairy Week, she mentioned
that she had had to miss a
recent planning meeting
because “I was busy
washing cows.” The cows, I
might point out, were being
primped for their part in a 4-
H judging clinic which took
place in die clinic ranged in
age from eight up to teens. “I
think the kids are really
great.” Heleile said, “and
their reasons for judging ...
they are so sure of them
selves ... and so en-
thusiastic. Of all the things
we have at the farm, that is
one of my favorites.”
A person can tell just
listening to Helene talk about
her Jersey herd, that her
enthusiam for the dairy
business is based on a
genuine affection for her
animals. Furthermore, it
was obvious when we drove
down to the meadow later for
some picture-taking, that the
feeling is mutual. Im
mediately recognizing
Helene, a number of her
cows came eagerly to greet
her in the open pasture.
J When I remarked on how
glad they seemed to see her,
Helene readily admitted that
she talks to them, and
jokingsly added,
“sometimes more than I talk
to my husband.”

and Wilmer’s son, Bill, check on their Sta-Rite Pipeline. Mr. Hostetter had his first Sta-Rite
Pipeline installed in 1975.
Mr. Hostetter says, “I was so well pleased with the milking equipment and the service by
Agway, that when I wanted to buy a second pipeline in 1976 for another farm I again chose
Sta-Rite from Agway for my 60 stall dairy barn.
