breeding and management
decisions, he relies on brother
Marty to keep his Holstein “milk

responsibility lies with the field

He also finds granddaughter
Karen and her paint mare to be

And with a little luck, Bob may
have a steady supply of eager
students for a good many years to
come. In addition to 12-year-old
Matt, Ed and his wife Lorraine
have a second son, six-year-old
Robert, Jr. And yet another six
