ARTXFICILL INSM4IWION LOCAT lo MfflH S Trempealeen County Breeders Coopera- tive began insemination of cows for its members herds on January 10th 1941. At that time the organization consisted of 110 members which has since grown to l6l. It was expected that 1200 cows would be inseminated by the veterinarian employed, during a years period. However, approxi- mately 1700 to 1800 will be inseminated. The association began with 6 bulls and now have 10, including an outstanding Aber- deen-Angus sire to be used for crossing on poorer cows from which the members do not wish to save youngstock. These off- springs will be marketed within a year. Plans are underway to enlarge the set-up to include two other counties, namely Jackson and Buffalo. Signing of members in those counties is in progress and when completed additional veterina- rians will be engaged. The following pages picture the or- ganizations facilities of the Breeders' Cooperative.
