Kenya has been Reserve National Champion ('98), Reserve Best Udder twice ('93 & '98) and won her class as a milker at the National three times. Her daughter GCH Kalahari was 3rd Milking Yearling with 2nd Udder at the '98 National, and 1998 All-American Milking Yearling, and may be even better than her dam. Kenya sons are working various herds across the country, with several of them at commercial dairies.. She is the dam of the top selling consignment at the '99 Spotlight Sale, *B Walnut Fork G.E. Kundun, who sold for $5,500 to the Moores of Texas. At the '00 National Kenya brought home both the High Lifetime Milk and Fat Production Awards. We continue to be pleased with reports of Kenya’s sons, most notably recently +*B Walnut Fork Khartoum who is doing a great job at Shari Reyna’s in Oregon. Kenya passed away in 2005.

Kenya had such a profound influence on our herd that today every one of our Alpines traces back to her or her littermate, SG Paisley Park T. Kaiya. A five-generation maternal line of LA Excellent Walnut Fork/Paisley Park does starts with Kenya. On a forage diet of little alfalfa and lots of pasture and local hay she produced a high lifetime record of high-component milk which has been transmitted to the herd that averages 4% fat and 3% protein on Standard DHIR. Her calm and responsive nature made her a joy to show and travel and work with. She never had metabolic issues or mastitis. With her wide and level rump, correct shoulder assembly and front end, tightly attached mammary system and grace elegance, she had her share of success in the show ring and on appraisal day. But, to us, most important are the generations of progeny she leaves behind in our herd and others.
