Here are a few of our animals of the past that we have pictures of, most are no longer in the herd, but some are still impacting the present and future success that we share.

Animals of the Past

Thorndale Tara

(Beau x Simon)

1st Dry Cow NYS Fair '93, was the foundation cow for Scott's herd.  We recently lost this cow at the age of 18 when she calved in with a sweet little heifer calf sired by our Basehit bull.  This calf was her 17th natural calf out of Tara (many sets of twins). There have now been 49 total animals in Thorndale's herd that are directly from this cow or her offspring.  She will be missed!

She was Kristen's 1st cow, and lived a life that most people would be jealous of.
