Part of the crowd inspecting the herd.
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.
Connie welcomes the crowd and thanks all the friends that they have gained through the years in the dairy cattle fraternity.
