Mil-R-Mor Farm, located in Orangeville, IL, is currently milking about 140 cows with a 110.1 BAA. Fifty years ago this year, Bob & Kaye Miller registered the first calf with the Mil-R-Mor prefix. Since that time, they have had many achievements along the way, including the development of the world-famous Roxy 4E-97 cow family, and being named the 2007 National Dairy Shrine Distinguished Dairy Cattle Breeder. To celebrate, they will be holding a Golden Anniversary Sale April 28 at the farm. About 65 young, deep-pedigreed Mil-R-Mor females will sell, along with about 25-30 special consignments that descend from Mil-R-Mor breeding.
