Description
Full title:Fred S. Doi, formerly of Gila River Center and Fresno, California, came to the Omar Farm outside of Omaha, Nebraska, a year and a half ago to learn dairying. He started at $75 per month plus a house for his family and now receives $125 per month and has been promised another raise. He is in charge of 48 cows and all the dairy equipment. He increased the milk production from 40 gallons per day to 110 to 115 gallons per day, and is enthusiastic about dairying and the Midwest. There are lots of good chances for families to go into dairy farming now even if they have had no experience, like me, and you can't fail on a dairy farm, Mr. Doi said. The entire Doi family, including a brother and sister-in-law and her child, are enthusiastic about Omar Farm and their employers who own a chain of flour mills and bakeries throughout the Midwest. The Omar Farm consists of 220 acres and is an experimental enterprise, in addition to supplying milk and poultry products to leading Omaha institutions. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Omaha, Nebraska.
