"I dropped in at Nels Kroohn's the other day where he is operating a 500 acre ranch for the Lake Street Investment Company of Minneapolis, just off Lyndale in Byrnesville. This farm is operated exclusively by the Kroohn family and they are doing a mighty good job of it. For years they milked 50 cows, but two years ago the T B Test caught 32 of the herd and they are now milking but 40. They also keep about 100 head of hogs. The buildings, which are located back from the road, consist of a fine home for the family, and many buildings, sheds etc including a barn 40 x 100 feet. Everything about the place is modern and well kept. The Kroohn family has been managing this place for 15 years, coming to it from Golden Valley.
