Find elite cow owners at

This ASCII Elite Cow List is the full list of elite cows and their recorded DHIA owners.
First there is a list of elite cows (as of May, 200X) which
identified cows by their Registration number, Sire No, and Herd Code.
11 is the state of Maine
12 is the state of New Hampshire and so forth.
The cows are listed by Breed A, B, G, H, R, S order. You can scan the bottom of the file to learn the state code you wish to search, and then scan the cows to locate top cows in that state. Then locate the herd code for the cow, and return to the bottom to find the cow owner. Or you can start from the bottom and find the cows of a particular owner.
At the bottom you find the farms listed by state order beginning with Maine11, followed by NH 12 and you may live near:
