Washington County dairy farmer Art Rhoderick has album upon album of photos of his cows - and for good reason. The success of Rhoderick's Art Acres dairy herd and its impact on dairy herds throughout the world are significant. And they, along with his service to the dairy industry, are the main reasons Rhoderick was inducted recently into the Maryland Dairy Shrine.
