Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, located in the northeastern region of Vermont between Quebec and New Hampshire, offers breath-taking scenery, and is home to many Vermont made products like their famous maple syrup. It’s also home to many outstanding Holstein herds. They recently held their regional show there – here are the results and pictures! (coverage provided by Renee Nadeau and Marcy Guillette)
