(CP) "If there are ever callle shipped to the moon, I'll be the first one to land 'em there." Tom Hays quickly adds: "I don't want to brag that 1 made that up." He explains that the line was used in an introduction lor him at a din- ner. Mr. Hays is president of Hays Farms international Lid., the largest single ex- porter of Canadian livestock, with dairy cattle the main item. The company was devel- oped by him and his brother, Senator Harry Hays, a former federal agriculture minister. Tom Hays, 58. is four years younger than the senator. The Hays brothers were the first to export cattle by air from Canada, in when they moved from Alberta and bought a 700-acre farm out- side Oakville. In 1948, the two brothers split the business and Harry subsequently went into poli- tics. "I kept the East and he kept the West, and it's still that Tom Hays said in an interview. Tom Hays is a former pro- fessional football ond-string guard with Edmon- ton Eskimos in 1339 and 1940 is solidly built. His sports activities include pe- riods of coaching junior foot- ball and hockey during the late 1930s and early 1940s and a long association with horse- racing. The Hays dairy hei'd was started by their father. Mr. Hays went into the cat- tle business full-time after he finished Grade 11 and started on the show circuit ol top fairs in Canada and the United States in 1933. "I never missed a meal in Ihose days, but I went a long way between them." Early in J934 he went to Britain to explore the export market. He cabled back to his brother to ship two carloads to Scotland and Mr. Hays said the 36 cows sold by auction in about 25 minutes. The market was expanding and they were doing well selling Holsterns in competition with British-bred Durham cattle. Their market disintegrated, however, after a cattle inspector condemned one of their incoming ship- ments and had the cows slaughtered. For Tom Hays, that meant a return to Edmonton where he found jobs milking cows in the morning and working in a greenhouse during the day. By the spring of 1935 he was married and needed more money so he applied for a job selling cars on commission at a Genera] Motors dealership. "I didn't know anything about cars but 1 knew 1 could sell." Mr. Hay.s said lie was in the senior master salesman cate- of two nr Ihree in (lie time GM stopped making cars in war- time 1941. It was while he was a car salesman that he first owned an interest in a racehorse. He still owns horses and says his best horse was F 1 y a 1 o n g, which earned more than In the early 1930s cattlemen and the hoise trainers and jockeys travelled the same circuit. "Johnny Longden still owes me a quarter for a meaJ I bought during the hungry '30s. We ate the same starved together." Hajs International exports about head of livestock annually, including cattle, sheep and hogs. The U.S. is the company's "bread and butter but the firm sells in dozens of other countries. He said the company does not sell in Canada because the market is trade between themselves." Mr. Hays credit's the quality of the type of Holstein raised in Canada and the stringency of government health stand- ards with creating demand for Canadian dairy cattle.
