G.R. Palmer and Farm Buildings
| Mr. Palmer has been farming all his life, and has been a patron of the Cheese Board for twelve years. |
He has, during the last four years, devoted his entire attention to the raising of beef cattle for the market, and his efforts have met with marvellous success. His ambition is to raise pure-bred Durham cattle in large numbers in the near future.
