I have participated in the California Holstein Association through Dairy Bowl, Dairy Jeopardy and being a state representative. I have participated and been successful in many shows, exhibiting cows that I bred and own. Truly spoken like a breeder of the future, Deena, went on to say, “ I believe that there is more joy in winning when you breed your own cows, than buying a winner.”
