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.
