True Type Cow — A Bit of History

True Type Holstein Cow

The pic­ture above is of a true type model Hol­stein cow devel­oped by the Hol­stein Asso­ci­a­tion of Amer­ica — prob­a­bly some­time in the 60s.

The cow was donated to the St. Anthony of Padua church by Jerry’s grand­fa­ther, Math Jen­nis­sen, to be used in the nativ­ity dis­play. Appro­pri­ate, since nearly all of the parish­ioners at that time were dairy farmers.

It was res­cued from the trash this past year by Clara Rooney of the Padua Pub. She pre­sented it to us at the Pub’s Christ­mas party a few weeks ago — and it is now on dis­play at the Creamery.

Thanks Clara! This means a lot to us!

Now to get some Padua Cream­ery artifacts…
