A Fair Cow

cow 2(From Truth’s Bulli Rep)

It was a fair cow,  right enough. Ask  Woonona dairyman William Ghan. One of Gahan ‘s herd  forced its way into  a vegetable garden owned by Mr. Percy Ackroyd, and before being led away Strawberry consumed :-

  • 20lb. beans.
  • Three dozen cauliflowers.
  • Three dozen cabbages.
  • A quantity of carrots, lettuce, beetroot and potatoes.

The meal was valued by Ackroyd at £3/6/-, and he claimed this amount from Gahan at Bulli Small Debts Court.

Mr. Hardwick returned a verdict for the amount claimed, plus 8/- costs.  

– Truth (Sydney, NSW) Sunday 7 August 1938.
