Vermont’s Cows: A Whole Lot More Than Holsteins

Mon 9/9/13 Noon & 7PM  Wagyus, Randall Linebacks, Normandes, Simmentals. They’re not as plentiful as Jerseys, Holsteins and Guernseys in Vermont, but we have them. And we will learn about these breeds of cattle and all the others that are being bred and raised in the state. For dairy, beef or oxen.

Jenn Colby, Pasture Program Coordinator at the UVM Center for Sustainable Agriculture, joins us to introduce to all of Vermont’s cows.

Also on the program, last week swimmer Diana Nyad completed a historic open water swim from Cuba to Florida. But closer to home this weekend, Bethany Bosch attempted another feat: swimming the 25-mile length of Lake Memphremagog as part of her training for an attempt at swimming the English Channel in 2014. We check in with the Wallingford resident to see how she fared.

Plus we reach into our mailbag and read comments from our listeners.
