Jan. 17, 1942 - County production of honey increased: Brown county's honey production hit a new high the past season when over 135,000 pounds of high grade honey and over 2,000 pounds of beeswax were produced, according to Thomas Cashman, De Pere, president of the Brown county Beekeepers' association. This total exceeds that of Manitowoc county, land considered one of the state's leading honey producing areas.

Largest producer in the county was Myron Frisque, whose apiaries produced 80,000 pounds of honey this year. Charles Zellner's apiary produced 20,000 pounds.

The first carload of honey was shipped to an eastern firm by Frisque last week. A carload is 48,000 pounds.

The beekeeping industry is now doing its part for the nation's defense program. Honey can serve as a supplement to sugar supplies, and just as important, beeswax is used in the production of munitions, Cashman pointed out.
