New Holstein Ideal Cow and Bull Commissioned

News Editor

Holstein Association USA has announced that updated images of the Ideal U.S. Registered Holstein® cow and bull have been commissioned and are currently in progress.

Renowned dairy artist Bonnie Mohr will be painting the images, which will be unveiled at the 2012 National Holstein Convention in Springfield, Mo., at the end of June. When completed, the originals will hang at 1 Holstein Place in Brattleboro, Vt., and prints will be made widely available for Holstein enthusiasts.

“The last time the Ideal U.S. Registered Holstein cow and bull images were updated was in the 1970s. We want an image that today’s dairymen will be able to relate to, that reflects the modern, efficient, attractive animal that is the U.S. Registered Holstein,” said Holstein Association USA President Chuck Worden. “We are delighted to be able to work with Bonnie Mohr to bring this project to life.”

Updates will be publicized as the project progresses in the coming months. Watch the Holstein Association USA web site and Facebook page for the latest details.
