A special thank you to all the buyers and supporters of the Visions of Veronica sale. It was a wonderful weekend of Jersey cattle and camaraderie that celebrated a true legend in the Jersey breed. As Ernie said during the sale opening, "It takes a village to develop a great cow". Several members of the 'village' shared their favorite Veronica memories and they were included in a special section of the catalog that you can now read online. We hope you enjoy their stories and get a true sense of Veronica. Click here to read the stories and view the catalog.
