R. Dewitt Mallary (1898 - 1993) formed Mallary Farm of Bradford and Fairlee, Vermont, with his wife Gertrude in 1935. The herd started with 5 purebred Holsteins and 1 bull calf purchased from the legendary Osbornedale herd in Derby, Connecticut. They build their herd over the years with careful planning and eventually it became a renowned herd of Holstein cattle. He was a prominent lawyer in Springfield, Massachusetts, and would commute back and forth from the farm to Massachusetts for much of the early years. He served 12 years as president of the Holstein Friesian Association of America, and was very active with livestock shows such as Eastern States Exposition, where he served on the board. He would serve as chairman of the Holstein Convention in Boston 1970.
