President A. W. Hendrick
University of Nevada

Dear Sir:

I wish to submit the following operating plan for the College
herds:  the plan for operating the College herd is to maintain
the breeds of the important strains of livestock as follows:

    1.  Dairy Cattle:  Holsteins with representative animals
        of Jerseys and Guernseys.

    2.  Beef Cattle:  with special attention to Herefords and
        Shorthorns, with representative specimens of Angus.

    3.  Horses:  Percherons.

    4.  Sheep:  Hamphsire, Shropshire, Rambouillet and repre-
        sentatives of Southdown, Cheviot, Dorsets and Tunis.

    5.  Swine:  special attention to Berkshires and Duroc-
        Jerseys with representative specimens of Poland-Chinas.

The plan with the beef and dairy cattle, of the Herefords, Short-
horns and Holsteins, is to start with one male and as many fe-
males (at least two) as the funds will permit, and to maintain
about ten females of each of these breeds.  Of the Angus, Jerseys
and Guernseys, the plan is to dispose gradually of any excess
over one male and two females of the less important breeds.

With the swine one male and five females of the Berkshires and
Duroc-Jerseys, and one male and two females of the Poland-Chinas.

Of the sheep, with Shropshires, Rambouillet and Hampshire, at
least 25 females and one male of each breed, while one male and
two females of the less important breeds.

Horses, one standard breed, five purebred mares, two filly colts
and one team of geldings.

The object of maintaining the above breeds for business is due
to the fact that the majority of calls here from this State in
livestock is from the breeds mentioned.

                             Yours very truly,

                         /s/ Chas. S. Knight
