As Connie mentioned in opening remarks, friends transcend dairy breeds. Her are Ayshire and Red & White breeders Clifford Bullock and Rita Marlow join the days celebration. Fittingly, the 2nd high animal will join a famed herd of Ayrshires in Quebec. Bonnie Shade has had Grand Champion Ayrshire at the RWF 4x through the generations of family ownership.
