Never knew Vernon, but knew his uncle Earl Kindig a little. Earl and his brother (Vernon's father) were early Charolais breeders in Virginia, under the name Kinmont Farm. Kinmont had Charolais cattle until about ten years ago. I think the farm was leased to another Charolais guy, Walt Winkler, some time ago, but I don't know if the cattle went to Walt. Walt has pretty good cattle. Anyway, I met Earl maybe Spring 2009 at the Virginia Beef Expo for a couple minutes.

Kindigs were sort of famous in the mid 70s for a homozygous polled Charolais bull they bought named ACR Alfalfa John 075. I think the bull had some good about him. He sired a few champions, a few high sellers, and was still showing up in the pedigrees of some decent cattle back in the 80s and 90s. A maternal grandson, Mr.Kinmont 114, was the record high selling bull at the Virginia Bull Test in the early 80s, and I think the record still stands. Something like $15,000 for 1/4 interest to essentially commercial oriented breeders (back in the day when horned probably part Chianinas were very popular elsewhere).

Or as I like to put it, in haiku form:

I din't know Vernon
But knew Earl just a little
He had some white cows.

Kent, that's a good first try, but remember 5-7-5

How about this:

J Vernon Kindig
Lawrenceville, Virginia
Did anyone know him?

That one's tricky because you don't know if virginia is 3 syllables or 4, but keep trying, you'll get the hang of it.

TD, wondering what MS would wear if I took him out for sushi and a poetry reading.

Don't bash my poetry. I am still a bit gun shy from the scolding I recieved 20 years ago for using various forms of-

When I eat sushi
I always dress tastefully
Don't wear cut-off jeans.

MS, still making art, like this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJMi9V35tig&feature=related

I knew Vernon, not for very long but I had the opportunity to visit with him a bit on the North Carolina Angus Tour to Iowa and Nebraska. He was often a ringman at North Carolina Angus sales. I know very little about his cattle but a few pedigrees that he showed me were linebred Emulous. I knew him more in passing than anything else.
