The 90th Annual New England Holstein Convention was held last week, Oct. 21 and 22, at the beautiful Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa. Besides the standard business meeting and awards ceremonies, convention guests got to do some “fun” stuff and tour area herds in northern Vermont. Thanks to Marion & Martha Seifert for their convention coverage!
