Located in Ogden, UT, Pappys Farms has been owned and operated by the Papageorge family since 1926. The milking herd consists of 120 Registered Holsteins and about 20 Registered Jerseys. The Papageorges have always bred for high-type cattle that can succeed in the show ring and achieve profitable production levels at home in the herd. ‘A cow that’s made right will be a milk cow.’
Numerous All-American and All-Canadian nominated individuals and breeder groups have carried the Pappys prefix over the decades – most notably recently with Pappys Goldwyn Rave EX-91-CAN 1*, who was the All-American and All-Canadian Winter Yearling and Junior Champion of the International Holstein Show in 2011. She was also the Reserve All-American and HM All-Canadian Senior 2-Year-Old in 2012. She is out of Markwell Durham Raven EX-93 3E from the famous Markwell Bstar E Raven EX-95 3E cow family. Several other Pappys-bred members of this family have been nominated All-American in recent years.
Other broodcow families at Pappys Farms include:
• Pappys Dundee Bessie EX-94 4E ~ 2x Member Nominated All-American Best Three Females
• T-Triple-T Plumeria EX-92 95-MS ~ Goldwyn x T-Triple-T Dundee Paige EX-963E

It was an incredible day for Pappys Farms at the recent Western National Holstein Show in Richmond, UT. Bringing home banners for Premier Exhibitor & Breeder for both the Junior & Open show, is just a couple of achievements of the day!
