This portrait Holstein dystocia model is loaded up and heading over for crating in preparation for her trip to Iowa State University.

Her paint pattern is designed to match a Holstein named "Frosty" , a famous cow owned by an Iowa State alumni.

From crating she will travel by truck to Ames , Iowa and hopefully arrive within the next couple of weeks where she will be received by
Patrick G. Halbur DVM, MS, PhD
Professor and Chair, Department of Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine, and Dr. Pat Philips. at the College of Veterinary Medicine.
