Bio: Gaddis, Arthur (Ayrshire Diary Cattle Award – 1968)
---------Source: OWEN ENTERPRISE (Owen, Clark County, Wis.) 08 Aug 1968
For distinguished success as a breeder of register Ayrshire dairy cattle, Arthur Gaddis of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), was presented the 'Constructive Breeder Award' by the Ayrshire Breeder's at Brandon, Vt., as it was announced at the 93rd Annual Awards Banquet held recently at the Thruway Motor Inn, Albany, New York. The presentations were made by President Phil Schuyler and David Gibson Jr., Executive Secretary.
This was the second award to be won by Arthur Gaddis, and in order to qualify for this honor, one of the most coveted prizes in dairy cattle circles, it is necessary for the herd to excel in milking production and breed type. Only animals bred through planned matings by the herd owner are considered for this award.
On strictly twice-a-day milking schedule for 305 days, the cows bred by the CBA winner made an annual production average of 13919 pounds of milk and 552 pounds of butterfat, M.E. The herd has a type classification average and score of 866 and 76 percent of the entire herd was bred by Mr. Gaddis.
Of the thousands of dairy herds in the United States, only 83 herds qualified for this high honor in pure bred dairy cattle achievement. Visitors are always welcome to visit this outstanding herd.
