Alfred E. Hulet

Although Alfred Hulet died at the relatively early age of 51 years, he lived long enough to make a lasting impression on the Holstein-Frisian breed of cattle. The records reveal that he bred and developed the animals of the Posch-Abbekerk strain, which became cornerstones in the breeding programs of the Mount Victoria and Colony Farm herds.

The Rag Apple strain, which made the Mount Victoria herd famous, was developed by mating Posch-Abbekerk females to Johanna Rag Apple Pabst. When females of similar bloodlines were mated to other bulls at Colony Farms the results were equally as impressive. Thus, credit for establishing these two famous herds must be shared by their owners with Mr. Hulet.

In addition to breeding outstanding Holsteins, Mr. Hulet was active in furthering the interests of the breed. He served as a director of the Holstein-Friesian Association for nine years and as its president in 1922. He was one of the architects of the Selective Registry Program and the first chief inspector, a position which he occupied at the time of his death.
