(Click the image to enlarge it)
 The above is a photo was taken during the 2014 Odebolt Creek Days of all the owners that now have land that was once part of Cook's Brookmont Farm north of Odebolt. In the center of the group is the Cook Corn Trophy.

Don Etler and his son Dan Etler (right) did extensive research on the old "Cook Ranch" and the Cook Corn Trophy.  They presented their findings during two very interesting presentations on Saturday, June 21st.  The presentation was recorded and will be available via YouTube at a later date.
