From the Ipswich Tribune May 30, 1929 edition


Mrs. Gus Fredrikson, living north of Loyalton in Montpelier township is one of the largest raisers of turkeys in this part of the state. So far this year she has 300 little turkeys that are about able to care for themselves and has 530 turkey eggs in incubators. She figures she will have about 700 little turkeys to care for this summer with the 35 old turkeys that she is carrying over until fall. She has also sold a large number of turkey eggs to her neighbors.

It is an acknowledged fact that baby turkeys are hard to raise even when they are hatched and cared for by a turkey hen. But Mrs. Fredrikson, by long experience, has learned the knack of taking care of them. Last fall she sold over 200 dressed turkeys. She is a firm believer that turkeys pay, but she also knows that it takes lots of time, care and patience
