New Hampshire History Program: “Cows and Communities”
Laconia, NH – In cooperation with the New Hampshire Humanities Council, a free history program will be presented by Steve Taylor, an independent scholar, farmer, journalist and longtime public official, who served as the state’s agriculture commissioner from 1982-2007. 
Taylor will speak on “Cows and Communities: How the Lowly Bovine Has Nurtured New Hampshire Through Four Centuries” Monday, April 30 at 7 p.m. in Taylor Community’s Woodside building. 
Cattle were essential to the survival of the earliest New Hampshire settlements and their contributions have been central to the life and culture of the state ever since. From providing dietary sustenance to basic motive power, bovines have had a deep and enduring bond with their keepers, one that lingers today and is a vital part of the iconography of rural New Hampshire. Space is limited. For reservations or more information, call Taylor Community at 524-5600.
