The Breeders Gazette

Today is National Farmers Day, and if you live in Wisconsin chances are that you have some farming ancestry somewhere.  One of the reference works that we have in the library is The Breeders Gazette, a National Farm Magazine, so I thought that I would post a few of the pictures featured in the issues that we have from 1899. A one year subscription to this magazine cost $2.

We have a bound collection of issues from July to Dec 1899.

For their Christmas issue in 1899, they printed full sized photos of many breeds of farm animals.
