Marlow with Mr. Widmyer in complete charge of all operations. They have 85 acres of growing al'falfa, some of which when cut for hay is semi-cured in the field, then chopped up and blown into 'large hay mows, these mows are equipped with air vents into which two large electrically driven fans force ,heated air through the hay and thus com- pleting the curing process. Kiwan- ians saw 80 tc,ns of hay being dried out in this way. On the farm there are about 85 Holstein and 30 beef cows. The buildings consist of a large bank ,barn, a loading shed, a milking )arlor. milk house andother farm buildings. This milking parlor is a sight .to .behold. A milking ma- chine milks six cows at a time; She milk Slowing through a glass pi,peline into a cooling tank in the milk house. From this tank, after belng cooled, it is drawn into a glass lined milk truck and hauled to Washington. The milk is not exposed to out side air while on .the farm. At t.he present ,time a- bout 250 gail0ns of milk is shipped daily. In answer to a question, Mr. Widmyer said that the parlor, milk house and equipment cost abou,t $I6,000. After the Kiwa,nians had obser red the milking of the cows, they were given all the milk they could drink; they saw the automatic "Wash U,p" of the milking equip- ment. Hot water is forced through .the milking tubes and pipes, thus everythlhg is cleaned aod sterlized wi.thout the aid of human hands. Mr. Widmyer with the aid of two hired men do .most of the work.
