Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Kansas Holstein Heritage

Good Morning from a very busy Knolltop.

We are headed to the show for the week, I'll be back and forth so hopefully I'll be able to post some news and pictures through the week.

Did anyone know Kansas was so full of famous Holsteins? From the comment left by that famed Dallas Burton I learned a lot about Holstein heritage.

I mean really, I know seven people from Kansas and I think that's half the population. Of course I know all the really important people; three used cow salesmen, a couple of instructors at Kansas State, a rancher and a radio station manager.

But I never knew Kansas would be such a draw for two editors of Holstein International to come all the way from Holland to roam the plains of Kansas appreciating rich Holstein history....with that hostess with the mostest, Dallas Burton.

Wow...I guess Kansas is more than wheat, Flint Hills and NCAA basketball champions!

More about our Dairy Days adventures later!
