The CREAM program at UVM has returned to showing their purebred cattle this summer, and the summer CREAM 2009 students did an outstanding job preparing a top show string, with the help of Doug Watkin, CREAM herds person, and Rachel Cadwallader-Staub, UVM class of 2010. Addison County Fair and Field Days was held from Wednesday, August 5th to Saturday, August 8th. The trip to Field Days included CREAMers bringing 9 heifers that the students had been training since early July. The CREAMers also created a barn display describing and promoting the program.

The students appreciated support that came from Rachel and Doug as well as Dave Bartholomew, UVM class of 2003, Joe Allen, UVM class of 2003, and Dr. Joe Klopfenstein, CREAM herd veterinarian. Another highlight of the show was that a UVM bred Jersey cow, UVM latola Serenity-ET, now owned and shown by Joe Allen was judged supreme champion of all cattle at the show. Plans are underway for CREAM to show cattle at the Champlain Valley Fair from September 3 to 7.
