dairy career began with 4-H dairy
project work. He then went on to
lowa State University for under
graduate and graduate degrees.
Between degrees he worked as
1 4-H agent in Massachusetts. Fol
lowing his schooling he stayed in
lowa to work as an extension
dairyman. He then went to the
University of New Hampshire as
an extension dairyman and com
pleted a doctorate degree at Rut

Boynton’s extension experi
ences led him to being named pro
fessor in charge of the dairy sec
tion at the University of New
Hampshire. With Boynton’s guid
ance, the university Holstein herd
became nationally known for its
type and production. Holsteins
were not his only area of expertise
as he also judged Ayrshire, Brown
Swiss, and Jerseys. One nomina

ing tool to help educate people
about breeding for sharp, clean
dairy character without getting the
cattle too frail. “Size, strength and
bone to go with dairyness,” was
how one nominator remembers
Boynton’s description of high
quality dairy cattle.
“Honest, gentleman and or
ganized,” are just a few of the
words used by one nominator to
describe Boynton. He served as a
role model for both young and old.
With organization and progressive
thinking, Boynton proposed the
organization of the New Hamp
shire Purebred Dairy Cattle Asso
ciation (NHPDCA) in 1953. This
then led to the initiation of the
Granite State Dairy Jubilee Show
in 1958.
The education process did not
stop with his retirement from
UNH. He continued to use his
leadership skills through the or
ganization of regional, national
and international conferences for
several breed organizations. His
