Boy Sends Calf to Egypt

Thomas Rich, from Hobart in Delaware County, New York, has the distinction of being the first person in the United States to introduce a purebred calf into Egypt. His 4-H calf, “Sophis Sons Voila” was purchased by Professor M. C. McFeetra, professor of Agriculture at Assuit College, American mission at Assuit, Egypt. It was necessary to secure a special permit to make the importation into Egypt, as formerly all stock was slaughtered at the docks. (from National Boys and Girls Club News, November 1929)
