Letter from Jim, July 22, 1998:
1939-1999--who would have believed it?
We have had 3 Gotham Herdsman books and 13
newsletters, including my edition in 1994. Our
books and newsletters are on the shelves of the
Dairy Shrine Museum and Hoards Dairyman.
After the 1939 Fair, I returned cows west to
McMinnville, Oregon (one Jersey cow never made
it because of her dislike of veterinarians).
The Cavanaugh History: Married 4/22/46;
fifty-one years in the same home since 1949;
American Jersey Cattle Club for 42 years; retired
in 1985; member of American Guernsey
Association (1986-1987); Executive Secretary of
the National Dairy Herd Improvement (1987-1988).
I graduated from Kansas State in 1942. I was a member of the dairy cattle
judging team. I worked for the Hoards Dairyman from 1942 to 1945. As an
Air Force pilot, I flew 50 missions, retiring as a major. I've received awards
from the Jersey Cattle Club, American Dairy Science Association of Animal
Breeds, National Dairy Shrine, and many others. I was Man of the Year at
Kansas State. On August 8, 2000, I was inducted into the Ohio Agriculture
Hall of Fame.
I love to read (over 200 books a year). I've traveled worldwide in the
service, and through 37 states as a civilian. I love to play golf. On Oct. 26,
1999, I attended Elsie's 60th Anniversary and birthday bash at Bryant Park,
New York City.
Our best wishes to all the "Borden Boys"--we would welcome a visit
anytime or a chat by phone.
