Blue Spruce Farm of Bridport, Vt., was recently awarded a 29HO11111 BOLTON sired calf as part of a World Dairy Expo promotional giveaway offered from ABS/St. Jacobs ABC (STJ).
Prior to World Dairy Expo, ABS customers received a postcard to turn in at the ABS booth during the week of the show, held October 2-6, 2012 in Madison, Wis. In addition to turning in a postcard, those interested could purchase a pack of semen at the trade show or through their rep until October 10 for an additional opportunity to be entered in the drawing.
Blue Spruce farm is owned by Eugene, Ernie, and Earl Audet. Their wives Marie and Missy are in charge of office work and taking care of the calves. Sons Nathan and Troy work with Eugene caring for the livestock. An operation that is truly a family affair, the Audets milk 1,380 cows that include milking daughters of DUNDEE, GARRETT, GENEVA, PRO, BOLTON, SHOTTLE and DIE HARD. The Audets have been ABS customers for more than 30 years and are currently using ABS/STJ sires FREEZE, AFTERSHOCK, DORCY, BRENDAL, GILLESPY, ZELGADIS and SHOUT through the Genetic Management System® (GMS®).
ABS and St. Jacobs ABC would like to extend a thank you to those who participated in this unique opportunity.
