Triplet Calves at Staker Farm

Seldom are triplet calves born in this part of the country, and when three calves are born we believe that is worth mentioning in these columns.
      Such was the case at the Louis Staker farm south of Reinbeck on December 9th. Louis knew that an Anguscow was about due andwas watching her as he had the cow penned up.
      That morning, when he went to the barn there was a nice bull calf, and the mother seemed alright, and so did the calf.
      Later Louis made another trip to the barn to see how the animals were progressing, and to his surprise was another bull calf and a little sister in the way of a heifer calf, making tree of them.
      The mother evidently heard about the enormous pig crop and the huge surplus corn crop and was just doing her bit toward the steak market.
He was a farmer. Louis was born on 1 October 1914 at Grant Township, Tama County, Iowa. He was the son of Julius Staker and Lillian Sienknecht. He married Melda Hass on 16 October 1940 at in Little Brown Church Nashua, Iowa.1 Louis died on 29 June 1993 at in Allen Memorial Hospital Waterloo, Blackhawk County, Iowa, at age 78.2 His body was interred on 2 July 1993 at in Maple Hill Cemetery Gladbrook, Tama County, Iowa.
