“Clarice of Wye was one of the most powerful and memorable females ever produced in the outstanding Wye Plantation herd, and she left an ongoing influence on the breed.

My grandpa, Sheldon Cotton, purchased Luthien of Wye in 1978. We bred an Oliver cow to Luthien in 2018. He will be used on heifers this year!
