Showing off her style is old hat to Tim Busch’s 10-year-old Ayrshire cow, Grand-View BBBK Dreamer, her registered name. On Oct. 6, the Shawano County cow was recognized as “Cow of the Year” at the World Dairy Expo in Madison.
“She’s pretty easygoing,” Busch said. “She’s been shown since she was a calf.”
Dreamer also won awards previously as a heifer, yearling, and at 3 years old. She has daughters in the United States along with daughters and granddaughters in Canada, Finland, Scotland, England, and Northern Ireland. Her daughters have many outstanding awards.
“She’s well deserving of it,” Busch said.
Busch and his wife, Katie, who works at Schneider National, have a small farm in the town of Green Valley where there are 45 milk cows and 70 head of young stock.
“Farming is either big or small,” Busch said.
