Dr. Doug Skivers of Eudora Animal Hospital delivered a two-headed calf at the Katherine Neis farm, southeast of Eudora. David Beebe, Neis' grandson, called the veterinarian to assist a cow with a difficult birth. The decision to deliver by Cesarean section was necessary. The calf died during the birth process and was transported to Kansas State University for research purposes.
Cletus Grosdidier, Eudora, was among eight Kansas Dairy Association representatives who spent two days in Washington, D.C., meeting with key agriculture officials.
The visit coincided with the official beginning of House Agriculture Committee debate on the 1995 Farm Bill and an announcement from Congressman Steve Gunderson, chairman of the Livestock, Dairy and Poultry Subcommittee, to completely deregulate the dairy industry.
Eudora Amateur Baseball Association Board of Directors were Kenny Massey, Brenda Clark, Terri Rose, Darin Howell, Tim Pringle, Janet Campbell and DeeAnn Howell.
