  • Stamp honoring Rural America

Farmers and farm historians will want to catch up with three stamps honoring Rural America, being issued by the U.S. Postal Service.

First, is a stamp noting the 100th anniversary of the introduction of Angus cattle into the U.S. First day of issue was set for October 5 at St. Joseph, Missouri with ceremonies at the headquarters of the American Angus Association. The design shows Angus cattle from Scotland and Longhorn cattle in a prarie setting.

Also in the set will be a stamp observing the 100th anniversary of the introduction of Kansas Hard Winter Wheat into the U.S. and one for the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Chautauqua, which brought cultural programs to rural communities. Both these are set for 1974.
