The Canadian Manager of Factory inspecting the first young farmers

Canada was the first country to select Holstein Fresians as the select breed of milk producing cattle.
He was specialist given the job of improving the milk yield in the UK after the first world war and introduced the breed by giving a H-F calf to the children of farmers who then recorded what they were fed and eventually their milk yield. The heifers were then sold to farmers with £5 deducted as the cost of the calf when given to the children.
