tradition with the Henleys.

Kennard Henley 111 was
the family’s top ribbon
catcher this year, as he won
the senior and grand
championship banners, and
also premier exhibitor
honors. Ahked how he liked
showing, the 14-year-old
student from Octoraro High
School replied: “We went to
34 fairs last year and had 25
grands most of them at
major shows, even national
with a record like that, I
really like showing."
His sister, Sharon, 17, is
also a successful showman
and fitter. At this year’s
Bicentennial Farm Show,
she captured five first
places. Rounding out the trio
of young Ayrshire en
thusiasts is 10-year-old
William, who reportedly was
at the lead end of a halter at
age two. He has been making
regular trips to the Farm
Show since 1973.

The story of Tower View
Ayrshlrcs is somewhat
unusual because it runs
contrary to two very com
mon trends P or one thing,
the farm decreased in
acreage from 200 to 21 today.
The Henleys were milking 80
head five years ago, but only
20 today Furthermore, up
until 20 years ago the family
had a mixed herd of Ayr
shlrcs and Holsteins, the
latter of which were shoved
out about 20 years ago.
Speaking on behalf of his
father’s management
practices, young Kennard
claimed the Holsteins
“weren’t milking too good
and wouldn’t breed back as
well.’’ His reasons for
preferring Ayrshires include
milking ability, good
disposition, less reproduc
tive problems, and success
in the show ring. He said the
fun of showing is one big
reason why the family
decided to do things on a
smaller scale. They can now
devote more time to the show
circuit, he explained.
Sharon sums up her show
ring fever in these words:
“You get to see many dif
ferent places, see a lot of
country and meet lots of
people.” Her head nodded in
agreement as her brother
