The story of the Foster Mothers paintings begins with a quote from the founder of Hoard's Dairyman. "The cow is the foster mother of the human race. From the day of the ancient Hindoo to this time have the thoughts of men turned to this kindly and beneficent creature as one of the chief sustaining forces of human life." - W.D. Hoard This quote penned more than a century ago was first brought to life by the brush strokes of James Baird, Hoard's Dairyman Art Director, in 1957. He recreated the image as the breed advanced, painting additional versions in 1963, 1991 and 1993. The cows in this 1957 version were recreated from photographs captured by Baird at the Waterloo show. The print of this original painting is the only one that features cows with horns. Print measures 16.5 by 11.75 inches.
