For the third consecutive year, Jonlee Secret Langwathby has won the Total Performance Cow and Cow For All Seasons Awards. The awards are presented to the cow that produces the most lifetime milk in the least amount of days, while placing in the top half of her respective class at a national show.
Langwathby was bred by John and Lisa Roberts on an organic dairy farm in Cornwall. The Roberts' sold their herd of about 190 purebred Brown Swiss cows in 2012 and now John is a Water Quality Specialist with the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets.
Langwathby is now owned by Dalton, Dillon and Breanne Freeman from Bremen, IN. She and her 140 herdmates are milked on robotic milkers. The highly decorated Brown Swiss holds multiple milking records as well as many show awards.
