Winners in the
Standing Field Crop Competition
of the Norfolk County Fair.
Mr. A. J. Thompson of the
Ontario Department of Agriculture was here on Monday and Tuesday,
visiting the 12 oat fields entered in the competition held by the
County Fair Board.
Mr. Thompson reported that
this years' weather conditions has militated very greatly against
good spring crops -- the result being percentage showings much
below the average.
Mr. Thompson's estimates
divided the prize money as follows:
J. D. Freeman of Windham,
Percy Potts of Woodhouse, 84 points
Herbert Downing of Windham, 76 points
Wm. Mason of Townsend, 74 points
Erwin Leedham of Charlotteville, 70 points.
Wm. Budd of Charlotteville, 69 points.
Mr. Thompson said A. H.
Smith's field would have been easily in the money, had he not been
compelled to cut it before inspection.
