Yates Hawkins of Shelby Has Grand Champion Heifer, 1952

From the October 1952 issue of Extension Farm-News, published by the Agricultural Extension Service, State College of Agriculture and Engineering, Raleigh

A North Carolinian, Yates G. Hawkins of Route 3, Shelby, exhibited the Grand Champion heifer in the Junior Show at the Atlantic Rural Exposition in Richmond, Va., last month.

The heifer, Basil Sybil Marina, a registered Jersey, placed second in the Junior Cattle Show at the North Carolina State Fair last year.

Her sire, Magnolia Basil Prince, was one of the outstanding proven sires used in artificial breeding by the American Breeders Service at Asheville. Hawkins procured his prize-winning Jersey heifer in 1950 through the county-wide Cleveland FFA calf chain.
