Upon the passing of beloved Guernsey Fieldman, Les Peckham of Ft. Atkinson, Wisconsin, many breeders from around the country have come forward requesting that a Guernsey memorial be established in his honor. Les was a Fieldman for many years and a fixture at Guernsey events all over the country. Although Les retired in 1990, he continued to do herd visits and help some breeders “catch up” their registrations into the late 1990’s. To honor Les, a memorial fund has been established and the Wisconsin Guernsey Breeders Assn. has agreed to assist in managing the memorial Fund. To honor Les and all he did for the Guernsey Breed, starting in 2013, your generous memorial gift will be used toward sponsoring the Intermediate Champion Award at World Dairy Expo and also sponsoring the winner of the National Outstanding Young Farmer.
