Knuth Dairy Farm 1949

This 1949 Dairy Farm was just about self supporting. Crops included Wheat, Corn, Hay, Oats. Livestock included Guernsey Dairy Cows, Pigs, Chickens, Ducks and Geese. A large garden supplied the fruits and vegetables.  During these times the Holstein breed was just entering the herd stocks kept by most farmers.  The Guernsey breed mostly disappeared from Wisconsin farms by the late 1970's

he home can still be found on County Highway V between State Highway 27 and US Highway 12, Between Rodell and the Dells Mill, between Fall Creek Wisconsin and Augusta Wi, in Eau Claire Wisconsin.
