H. L. REDD.
H. L. Redd, who enjoys the reputation of being one of the most expert dairymen in the San Joaquin valley, is also an enterprising and public spirited citizen who enjoys a well deserved popularity throughout the locality where he lives. He is a native of South Carolina, born on the 19th day of September, 1893, the son of B. G. and Mary (Chapman) Redd.

H. L. Redd secured his education in the common schools of his native community and from boyhood has been familiar with dairying. He learned in the school of experience the valuable lessons which he has since so thoroughly exemplified in his career as a dairyman. A keen observer and a deep thinker, he found out for himself many facts which have been keynotes to his work in later years. After working for some years in his native state he came west and was employed in several of the leading dairies in Washington and California. In 1921 he took charge of the Helm dairy in Corcoran and has achieved a splendid record, one that redounds greatly to his prestige. The Helm dairy ranch comprises three hundred and twenty acres and is well stocked with pure bred Holstein cows and bulls. To this dairy belongs the honor of possessing the world's champion milch cow, "Helen Veeman Woodcrest," a four year old, which produced the enormous quantity of thirty six thousand, two hundred and seventeen pounds of milk from October, 1923, to October, 1924. Her largest daily production was one hundred and thirty one and seven tenths pounds. They also own the honor roll bull of the United States and Canada, a ten year old, "Sir Veeman Korndyke Pontiac." Other record breaking cows are in this herd and their record is one of which the Helm dairy has a reason to be proud. There are eight cows that average over 30,000 pounds of milk. Mr. Redd takes pride in the fact that the prize cow mentioned was raised by him.

Mr. Redd was married to Miss Elsie Maine Hamlin, a native of Missouri, and they have three children: June, Donald and Stanley. Mr. Redd is a Mason.
