Kentucky Basketball coach Adolph Rupp, left, president of the Kentucky Hereford Association, presented a trophy to E.F. Fisher, center, on Nov. 5, 1959, at Keeneland. Fisher’s winter calf from Hi-Point Farms in Brighton, Mich. was named reserve grand champion female at the Blue Grass Register of Merit Hereford Show. Fisher was the owner of the farm, and with him was farm manager Pete Dean. Rupp was president of the association for 16 consecutive terms. A total of $10,000 was awarded in prize money at the two-day event, the equivalent of about $84,000 today. Click here to see other images of the legendary UK basketball coach from our archives.
