Summary
This collection consists of the articles of organization and by-laws, correspondence, herd registers, pamphlets, directories, cattle sales transactions cards, photographs, meeting minutes, membership lists, a desk diary, annual reports, annual meeting programs, and miscellaneous papers of the Michigan Guernsey Breeders' Association. The bulk of this material dates between 1948 and 1958. Also included in the collection are a rough draft and a typed manuscript of an unpublished book entitled The Cow Path, by the donor. The Cow Path concerns dairy farming in Michigan and the history of the Michigan Guernsey Breeders' Association. Of special interest in the collection are a copy of the testimony of William H. Juzi recorded during the Congressional Hearing on Butterfat Differential in 1952 (see Miscellaneous - August 12, 1952), and a twenty-six page analysis of milk, compiled by researchers at Pennsylvania State University in 1953 (see Correspondence, September 30, 1953)
Biographical or historical data
The Michigan Guernsey Breeders' Association was founded in 1908 by a group of twenty-seven people convening at Michigan Agricultural College (now Michigan State University) on invitation by M.A.C. President Snyder. According to the preamble of their constitution (see volume 1), the objectives of the association were "the promotion and encouragement of breeding Guernsey cattle, their advancement, and the discussion of such topics as may be of general merit." The association was incorporated in 1945, and later (around 1958) became part of the American Guernsey Breeders' Association.
