Beinn Bhreagh Recorder by Alexander Graham Bell, from July 24, 1909 to October 19, 1909
The wool, or mohair is also valuable, but we have as yet been unable to make a market for same in Canada although I corresponded with several manufacturers two or three years ago. They all replied they had not the machinery to manufacture it. I understand this season the Hawson mills are going into mohair manufacture.
The meat has not yet been used on Beinn Bhreagh although in the western parts of the United States it is sent to the market as “Lamb” and considered to be as good as the finest lamb but has to be house-fed for a month or more to take the wild flavor off the meat.
