Lou Brodeur


Lou Bordeur and his family have a long history of Brown Swiss breeding, dairy farming, and exhibiting at The Big E and many other shows. Lou and George G. Harris were close personal friends dating back to their college years at UCONN.

Lou worked at George Farnum's High Meadow Farm in Wallingford, Connecticut, for 5 years. He along with Bill Notter exhibited High Meadows top caliber show string at The Big E, Chicago and the National Dairy Cattle Congress, Waterloo, Iowa. Lou and his wife and children later took care of the Connecticut Brown Swiss string at The Big E and Harrisburg shows during the 1970's and 1980's.

Lou and his family operated dairy farms in Bridgewater, Connecticut, and Sheffield, Massachusetts, for more than 20 years. They were also very active in the Connecticut, and New England Brown Swiss Associations. During some of the 1970's shows, half of the Brown Swiss exhibited were from Connecticut herds. The Broedeurs owned, exhibited and cared for some of the Brown Swiss breed's truly outstanding heifers and cows. His graddaughter's family continued to farm in Connecticut, milking about 40 cows, and have exhibited at The Big E and local Connecticut shows in recent years.
