New Expo Award Honors Memory of Keith King

Chuck Zimmerman

A special crystal award will be presented to each of the seven Junior Show Grand Champion exhibitors at World Dairy Expo 2005. These unique awards will be presented annually in memory of Keith King.

King, an accomplished Milking Shorthorn breeder from Oneida, Illinois, was a lifetime supporter of World Dairy Expo and an industry leader. A former American Milking Shorthorn Society President, Dairy Shrine Guest of Honor, World Dairy Expo Dairyman of the Year and Klussendorf Award winner, he judged every major Milking Shorthorn show in the U.S. and Canada and was the first American to judge Illawara Shorthorns in Australia.
