Standing alone in a world of cows is Audrey Posch. She is the
only cow of the breed to have founded an uninterrupted sixteenth generation group of Excellent females. The family includes the Holstein Breed's 1st, 2nd and 3rd (16th Generation Excellents) tracing in an uninterrupted line back to Audrey Posch “EX93-GMD.” When one considers the many millions of cows that have lived since Audrey was born in 1937, none of whom can match her accomplishments, she singles herself out as one of a kind. Audrey’s family begins with the imported cow, Vreda 2259HHB. Vreda was born in the herd of T.W. Hilwerda, Tzum, Friesland in 1881. Vreda was imported to the United States by Thomas B. Wales, Jr. of Iowa City, Iowa in 1882. With Vreda came the genes that would produce the first ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, and sixteen generations of Excellent in the history of the Holstein breed. Eight generations after Vreda’s arrival in America, her maternal line produced Nooksack Jewel Fayne. She would later become a National Champion and World record producer. Thirteen generations later the family produced Audrey Posch. Audrey Posch became a National record producer. She would go on to score Excellent-93-2E,earn Gold Medal Dam status and begin the unprecedented line of sixteen generations of Excellents.

Audrey’s daughter, Arlite Posch “EX92-GMD” was the dam of Whirlhill Q Rag Apple Ariel “EX92.” She was the first cow of the breed to produce seven consecutive records over 1000 pounds of fat. Ariel’s daughter, Hayssen DV Audrey “2EX90” made her 1035 pound fat record at Carnation Milk Farms in 1969. She was the dam of Hayssen Fond Ariel “2EX90.” Fond Ariel was consigned by Lakeside Farm to the World Premier Sale in 1969. There she was purchased by Pinehurst. Her daughter, Pinehurst Fragrance “2EX90,” was born in 1974. She would become the first of the family to carry the Pinehurst prefix. Fragrance thus founded an ongoing line of Audrey’s that has now reached ten generations with the Pinehurst prefix 8 of which are included in the line above.
