STRETCH CO.--THE BEST PLACE TO SHOP, AFTER ALL SATISFACTION WAREHOUSE 261 Queen of Milch Cows Is Dead , SEGIS PIETERTJE PROSPECT Who has for several years held the world's record for milk produc- tion i 365 days, has just passed away at the Carnation Milk Farms, where she spent most of her lifo. This great cow, a me@el of the Holstein-Friesian breed, an inspiration to all lovers of improved livestock, and an undisputed champion in her particular field, deserves more than passing tribute. Compared with the average cow, her performance is almost unbe- lievable. A cow of enormous capacity, weighing over 1800 lbs., she pro- duced her own weight in milk on an average o every seventeen days throughout the year of her record. Her greatest record for 365 days was 37,381 Ibs. of milk and 1,448 lbs. of butter, and that mark has not been equalled since it was made over four years ago. Two years later, she made another record of 35,462 lbs. of milk and: 1.424 lbs. of butter, which was, at that time, second only to her own previous record. She is alo credited with the highest average butter prouction for two years' record of any United States cow. i "Prospect" was one of the greatest attractions at the National Dairy l Show at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, last fall, where generous praise was show- ered upon her by noted catttle experts who were amaze to see a cow: twelve years of age that had secreted over 36 tons of milk in two years and had just traveled 2,000 miles to stand in a pen like an animal in a zoo, show but little effect on her record-breaking performance--carrying an udder still strongly attached and' in splendid condition, and showing all the capacity and vigor of a "four-year-old." At this time she was heavy with calf, giving birth on January 29th to a splendid male calf sired by Matador Segis Walker. While she apparently showed no effects from her trip to Milwaukee, it i probable that the strain of this long journey so weakened her that this, followed shortly by the birth o her calf, brought on a general break-down. She seemed' normal in every way until a week before she passed away, when she appeared to be growing weak and would not eat, but showed no symptoms of any particular ailment. She continued to milk up to the last dy, showing the remarkable persistance of the milk-producing function. Like the truly great queen that she was, she accepted the ap- proach of death as calmly as she ha@ borne herself thrvughout her long lifetime of remarkable service to mankind---as coolly as she had always' accepted the admiration of the livestock men and others from this and ather coumtrie who have paic their respects at her box-stall throne. Many will deplore the passing of this great cow, and/ to those con- nected with the Carnation Milk Farms, and especially Mr. Cockerell, who has been her personal attendan for over five years, it is an occasion of real sorrow. Mr. Cockerell hs developed many great cows in various herds in this country during the past twenty years, but his love and affection for this one and the bond of mutual sympathy and umterstanding [ I which existed' between cow and master was truly remarkable. "Prospect" permit; to develop 7,500 horsepower was almost human in her regard' for Carl, who had cared for her as a and cost approximately $800,000. mother would her child., and who speaks of her passing as the greatest blow he has ever suffered. "Prospect" has two young dtaughters and four sons living, so her influence and blood will be available for the improvement of the Holstein breed through their use in the Carnation herd'.
