CARD OF THANKS Words cannot express the heartfelt gratitude and thanks we feel towards all those who shared their prayers, their friendship, their food, their words of comfort and special memo- rials during the loss of our morn, grandmother and great grandmother. We are greatly comforted in knowing that Mabel (Babe) oiland was able to share 92 years of life with such wonderful friends, family and neigh- bors. We would also like to extend special thanks to Pastor Shalom Kropfl and the Eidskog Lutheran Church, the pallbearers, the ushers, the Deborah Circle and Larson Funeral Home for their kindness and support. A very, very special thanks to Pastor Mark Holman for co-offici- ating the services and adding that special family touch, and to Carl and Jan Schmidt for their advice, guid- ance, love, wisdom, support and spe- cial musical talents. It would have been much harder without you! "God loves you and so do we!" 25-1 The Family of Mabel Holland CARD OF THANKS I want to extend my thanks and appreciation to those involved in organizing the Big Stone City Fast Pitch Hall of Fame - and for the honor of being selected as one of the charter members. The announcement Sunday afternoon was a complete surprise to me, and I can't tell you how much it means to me. The Big Stone City softball field has lots of memories for me and our family, and seeing so many of the "old timers" there - players and fans alike - was very special. The granite clock will be proudly displayed in our home. My appreciation, also, to Marquette Bank of Big Stone City, where the permanent plaque will be hanging. It was a great day - and thanks again to everyone involved. 18-1 Dave Torgerson CARD OF THANKS On behalf of our mother and "grandma, Ruby Balster, we express our sincere thanks to all who tended to her needs and eased our suffering.

Thanks also to the servers at First English Lutheran Church for the deli- cious lunch, to her grandchildren who served as casket bearers and to her dear friends who served as honorary casket bearers. Our special thanks to Pastor Dan Hermanson for his many visits with Ruby (including reading the Sunday funny papers to her!) and to Pastor Wil Hansen for his consol- ing words and meaningful service.

John Cunninghnm, County Extension Director 839-2518 or 1-800-279-2518 DAIRY FACILITIES CAN HANDLE MORE COWS WHEN HEIFERS RAISED ON CONTRACT Dave Kjome, southeast Minnesota dairy educator with the University of Minnesota Extension Service prepared this week's column material. The opportunity to milk more cows without building more facilities is encouraging some dairy producers to have someone else raise their heifers. Producers can expand their herd by 25 percent or more using this strategy. A producer who contracts to have someone else raise the heifers can specialize in milking cows. A disadvantage is the producer lacks management control over heifer raising. Also, disease is always a concern when heifers from multiple farms are co mingled. Growing heifers may work well for a person who has a feed and water supply and facilities that have adequate ventilation and allow animal grouping based on size. Growing heifers on contract can provide employment for a semi-retired person. It can also provide full-time work for a person who wants to own and manage a business. A challenge for the grower is to keep a steady supply of contract animals from multiple sources. To build a credible reputation and be successful, a grower must maintain above-average sanitation and use sound management practices. In some contract arrangements, the dairy producer sells replacement animals to a grower, but reserves the fight to repurchase the grown heifer at a predetermined price. The problem for the grower is that the producer may buy back only the best replacements, leaving the lower end with the grower. Also, the grower may be without income for 18 months or more. In the direct contract option, the producer retains ownership of the heifers and pays the grower a daily fee, The contract should protect both the dairy producer and the heifer grower. It should specify the length of contract term, a provision for termination and a method of arbitration for unknowns. It should spell out health requirements such as calfhood vaccinations, how to handle death losses and who is to pay for veterinary care. It should specify who is responsible for breeding the heifers and paying for service and semen and who is to pay for transportation costs. Contracts are usually flexible in establishing fees and costs and should permit the addition and deletion of animals as conditions dictate. Many dairy producers don't have a good knowledge of their cost of raising heifers. Growers with a proven track record are showing they can do it better and often cheaper. 0000ar.x00zz 00l/L400OOff All/00g'Y00", A Beka Book. See our web site at Beka 2], ]998 INDEPENDENT Page 7b
