Erf Guernsey cow has good record

Katy’s Trixie of Chestnut Ridge, a Guernsey cow owned by William Erf, of near Monroeville, has recently completed her 10 record with an average of 9,452 pounds of milk and 476 pounds of butterfat annually. It is a long-time high production with a calf every year that makes her one of the most valuable members of the herd.

She is still working hard every day in spite of the fact that for a decade she gave more than two tons of butterfat.

Her high year (1930), she made 12,640 pounds of milk and 621 pounds of butterfat.
