2009: CVF Name the Heifers Contest

Once again this year we are holding a “Name the heifers contest”.

The winner will receive a free winter sleigh ride.

In the attached picture, the 2 heifers, who need names, are out front.

Their older brother steers (BB & CC) are supervising the proceeding.

The decision of the judge is final. Bribery is allowed.
