For decades dairy farmers did not want them but now they are among the most prized cattle.

But this week the red and white Holsteins will outshine their black and white brethren at the National Red and White Convention, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in Kasson.

Red and white cattle are the result of both parents carrying a recessive gene, said Bob Eustice of Byron. He is a member of the committee that brought this year's convention and cattle sale to the Dodge County Fairgrounds and area farms. He also has red and white cattle at his Byron farm.

The red and whites have gone from "undesirable to coveted," said Eustice's brother, Ron, who has become an expert on the breed's history and written two books about them.

Read the rest of the story in the print edition of the Star Herald or Byron Review.
