At Peter Strachota's
Auction Sale Last Week
The auction sale held at Peter Strachota's farm was
without a doubt the best ever held in this section. All 66 head
were sold, 21 head of Pure Breds which brought an average
price of $347 each. The highest price Pure Bred cow sold was
Jewel De Kol Gem the 4th which was purchased for $555.00.
There were 29 grades sold at an average price of $186 per
head. The highest price grade was purchased by Ben Pen-
nebecker of Stratford, a six year old cow with a record of 75
lbs. of milk per day.
Mr. Strachota was very well pleased with the results of
the sale.
From Stratford Journal, Oct. 27, 1933
Strike in Full Swing Here this Week
The milk strike is going full blast at this writing. Stratford
has had as high as seventy-five farmers picketing at one time
at the intersection of highway 97 and county trunk B. Milk,
butter, wood and eggs, in fact all farm produce is being kept
off the market. Eggs are as scarce in Stratford as hen's teeth.
Radio broadcasting station gave Stratford front page public-
ity in their broadcasting this week.
It appears the tillers of the soil mean business this time
and are bound to force prices of their produce upward, and
intend to continue the strike until they do get it.
The people as a whole are in sympathy with the farmer.
