    Thanks for another article on the Hagenbuch Family history. Interesting to note that Montour County didn’t exist until 1850. I know the county quite well, having traveled it’s roads extensively in 1967 and early 1968 as the D.H.I.A. (Dairy Herd Improvement Association) Supervisor. I collected milk samples and recorded information for 25 or so the county. The information was then sent to Penn State University. Each farmer in the program then received a detailed report each month on the “status” of each cow in his herd. A sort of “do we keep Bessie or not” report card. I got to know a lot of roads and short cuts in Montour County!!

      Wow, that’s a lot of information about cows! What factored into the status? Certain spects of milk quality?
