A new world’s record for all breeds
for butterfat production in. the seven-
day division was established by the
| purebred Holstein-Friesian cow, Segis
Payne Johanna 114658, in a test end-
ing January 8, 1917. This remarka-
ble cow produced 50.68 pounds of hut-
ter in seven consecutive days, and the
official test was conducted by super-
visors of the New York State Agri-'
cultural College, Ithaca, N. Y. |
{ Segis Fayné Johanna, by her won. |
derful achievement, is now the most
talked of cow in the world, and her
sensational record marks a signal
triump in the forward march of the
Helstein-Friesian breed.
She was breed by A. A. Cortelyou,
«f Somerville, N. J., and her preseat
owner is Oliver Cabana, Jr., proprie- |
{ tor of Pine Grove Farms, Elma Cen-
{ tre, N. Y., at which noted establish-!
, ment four other world’s record hold-
ers have been developed during the
past six months. -
The new world’s record holder fresh-
ened at the age of eight years, two
months and seventeen days. She is
. four-fifths white, weighs about 1450
: pounds, and ig sired by King Fane]
Segis 46767. Her dam is Vikina Joi-
anna 64385, a daughter of Johanna
Rue 3d’s Lad and Vikina Clothilde.
The test was made under perfect
conditions, absolute quiet, systema-
tic feeding and milking, and a roomy
stall constructed of clean white ena-
meled walls. sf
