Throughout the Spring and after only six weeks ”post op” from her ACL and meniscus procedure, her perseverance has been rewarded. Another memorable year is starting for Odessa Montour Central School Sophomore, 16 year old, Mallory Rhodes and her stunning red and white calf, Pheasant Echos Aline (spelling is correct) or “Allie” for short. Allie is from Lantland Farms on Middle Road, in rural Horseheads, NY. On June 15, 2019, Rhodes and Allie won Champion Showman, Junior Champion Red & White, and Junior Showman at the Spring Dairy Preview R&W Holstein Show at the Erie County Fairgrounds in Hamburg, NY. (No jokes allowed) Junior means the heifer is not yet a cow.
Mother, Mary Jo Rhodes said, “She did this all on her own after a short time healing from her procedures. I’m amazed.” Mallory Rhodes selected and purchased Allie all on her own at the Spring Preview Sale in April at the New York State Fairgrounds. Lantland Farms took great care of Allie while Mallory was recuperating from her surgery. Mallory Rhodes said, “I didn’t know I could show and place this well after the surgery, but we’re taking ribbons.”
Stay tuned to see if Allie sweeps her way to the World Championship like Rhodes did last year with Willow. Lantland Farms represents – rural Schuyler and Chemung Counties.
You can see and maybe pet Allie at the Troy Fair in July and the Chemung County Fair early August.
