The go back to a cow, Penelope, from a farm about an hour west of us that has lots of really good cows. Penelope's daughter, Persephone (Peach & Pear's granddam) we sold at our state Holstein sale, and she ended up going just down the road to another neighbor, and we got to see her at the county fair for several years, towering over her new owner, Ellie. I think she had a couple of heifers for Ellie - hopefully they are still doing well. One of the best things for a farmer is to sell a cow, and know that she did well for her new owners!
