Ayrshire convention sets the bar

Hoard's Dairyman: 

Ayrshire convention sets the bar

Recognizing the special role of the dairy cow, Hoard's Dairyman donated two
limited edition prints to the seven dairy breed associations. Both prints
were remarqued and signed by artist, Bonnie Mohr. There are only two, of
1,250 limited edition prints, that are remarqued with a pencil etching of
the respective breeds cow. A remarqued print typically brings twice or
triple the value of what would be obtained for limited edition prints. One
of these remarqued prints is being used in a fund-raising effort with
proceeds going towards the breed's youth programs.

The U.S. Ayrshire Breeders Association auctioned their remarqued print at
the National Ayrshire Convention in Murfreesboro, Tenn. this week. This was
the first of the seven remarqued prints to be sold. The lucky bidder was
Lynn Lee of Tennessee who purchased the print for $425.

The six remaining remarqued prints will be auctioned off at the breed
conventions or another breed event within the coming year.
