Just a week or so after she was featured as a life-size cardboard cut out in photo booths at Alliant Energy Center, Old Mill E Snickerdoodle, one of the all-time greats of our industry is celebrating her 18th birthday at her retirement home in Florida!
Happy 18th Birthday to Old Mill E Snickerdoodle 5E94/97MS. Snickerdoodle was bred by the Bassler family and still resides with them today, at her new home in Florida. Snickerdoodle has been nominated All-American 8 times, and is an 8-time class winner and 6-time Champion at World Dairy Expo, and is the only cow to ever win every milking class there. In addition, she was the 2003 Supreme Champion and the Reserve Supreme in 2008 and 2009.
She is proving herself as a brood cow as well, with show-winning daughters, and sons that are siring high-type individuals. Her son Old Mill WDE Supreme was recently named Premier Sire again at the World Dairy Expo International Brown Swiss Show. Visit Snickerdoodle’s Facebook Group to see more about this great cow and her offspring.
Happy Birthday to Snickerdoodle, and congratulations to the Bassler family on breeding, raising and developing this wonder of the world.
