One of the well known and respected dairymen of Sonoma county is the gentleman whose name heads this article. He
was born in the Canton of Ticino, Switzerland, and there reared to young manhood and educated in the schools common
to that section. He was early trained to the work on a farm and grew up to know what hard work meant. Having some
friends who had preceded him to this country he eagerly sought news of the chances for young men in the Golden
West and soon decided to cast in his lot with those who had gone to the United States and the Pacific Coast in
particular. Arriving in New York he at once crossed the continent and began work in the dairy business. After he
had accustomed himself to conditions in the west and had saved some, money from his earnings he began the dairy
business for himself in Sonoma county.
From a small beginning he gradually increase his herd of cows and in 1910 had leased one thousand acres for grazing
purposes upon which the one hundred and twenty five cows he has find plenty of feed. Besides the milch cows he
has about fifty head of young stock on the ranch. From the cows is produced about one hundred pounds of butter
daily for four months of the year. This product is shipped to San Francisco and is marketed at a good figure. Mr.
Geuglima has studied the dairy business and devotes all of his time to making the undertaking a success. He is
one of the enterprising Swiss of the county and in the country of his adoption is a loyal citizen. His ranch is
in the vicinity of Duncans Mill and represents the spirit of progress for which the Italian Swiss of the Pacific
Coast are noted. He has neter married. All matters of public interest find in him a warm supporter and he is well
known in his locality.
