FDL Man Going Into National Dairy Shrine Hall Of Fame
A Fond du Lac man will be honored as a National Dairy Shrine Hall of Fame honoree in Madison Thursday night. Earl Kehrmeyer is being recognized with the Pioneer Award as one of the key pioneers in the marketing of U.S. genetics to Europe and across the globe. But he says he started out as trucker for Grande Cheese. He and his brother were partners trucking for Grande for 21 years. Then Earl became a sales manager for American Breeder Service in 1956. It was that second career starting an exporting business for ABS that took him all over the world. He traveled to approximately 70 different countries. His wife of 64 years, Betty a blacksmith’s daughter, and family will be joining him Thursday night in Madison for the National Dairy Shrine’s Awards Banquet. Earl says the award is an unexpected honor.
