The history of Vinewood's avartar Carvalacres Var Jennifer EX 92 - 2E. She was purchased in 1962 as the future Queen of Vinewood Holsteins, it did not take long to realize that Jennifer was one of the best young cows of our herd.

Jennifer was the best show cow that we owned , and was the highest selling cow in our desperisal in the fall of 1996. and at the age of 8 yrs. produced in 325 day over 30,000 lbs of milk and 1,100 lbs of butter. This is why you can see Jennifer is my online avartar.

I love the avatar Jennifer - and am a little afraid to ask where the real-life Jennifer ended up.... It's clear she must have been one contented cow!
