March 7, 1967 - Cattle arrive here for NFO protest sale: Cows, heifers and some calves were being brought to the Central Cooperative Livestock yards today in the second protest sale by the National Farmers Organization.
The sale conducted here two weeks ago involved a reported 5,000 to 6,000 head, and covered a large area of the state. Some 10 or 12 counties are being are being covered in the current sale here, with similar activity centered at Lone Rock, Reedsville and Bloomer.
"This is our way of protesting low prices farmers are receiving for their milk," he stated. "We feel that by reducing the cow population we will reduce milk supply and thereby create a better market."
He said he expected about the same results as two weeks ago. The cattle are handled by the Central Cooperative Livestock yards and slaughtered at the Liebmann Packing Co.
