Caption under photo: “Despite the constant use of automatic milking machines, Merle Gilliland, herdsman at the Sinton Dairy Farm south of Colorado Springs, proved he hasn’t lost his touch at milking as he gave Gerald Smith some direct service Tuesday during a visit by the YMCA Adventurers club. Watching the feat are Jimmy Cannell (left) and James McCormick. The Adventurers club is set up to conduct the summer phase of the YMCA’s year-around program for boys 8 to 14 years old. Various point of interest in the Pikes Peak Region are visited.” Photo appeared in the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph on July 18, 1951, page 11.
