Historic Role for Plainfield Oxen
By Lorraine Merrill, Commissioner; From the Weekly Market Bulletin
A pair of Milking Shorthorn oxen, named Lewis and Clark, are headed to their new home at the George Washington Birthplace National Monument, in Pope’s Creek, Va., on the Potomac River. The team, now 5 ½ years old, were raised and trained by Kate Whybrow of Plainfield. Whybrow is a Plainfield native who was active in 4-H and grew up showing Shorthorns.
