In early spring of 1970, we had a cow, Rose, die in an accident on the highway. Rose was a beautiful Guernsey cow with a very docile disposition. She was killed instantly after being hit by a car. Ironically, the driver of the car was the wife of our veterinarian who only months before had saved her from milk fever. Rose was as much a pet as any animal on the farm. We were all saddened and stunned by this accident. Afterwards, we spent several weeks running the fences and replacing the old, rusty barbed wire and rotten posts with shiny wire and new locust posts.
