Two Waukon dairies recently were honored by having one of their cows included in the Northeast Iowa Community-Based Dairy Foundation’s Hall of Breeds at Iowa’s Dairy Center in Calmar.
Featured in the display are Prairie Moon Y Antebella, of Prairie Moon Guernseys owned by Frank and Dan Sivesind of Waukon, and Snow-N Denises Dellia-ET, owned by Regancrest of Waukon and raised by Robert Snow of Viroqua,WI.
Friday, March 10, the Northeast Iowa Community-Based Dairy Foundation hosted an open house to unveil its newest attraction, which includes life-size photos of some of Iowa’s most notable cows. The Hall of Breeds is located in the corridor between the Iowa Dairy Museum and the facility’s milking parlor.
Family representatives connected to the seven cows chosen for the display were on hand to celebrate the completion of the Hall of Breeds and Nutrition Room areas at Iowa’s Dairy Center.
