Pepper, Louis H. Dairy Science Endowed Fund

Posted by nitcy | February 28, 2013

This endowment  was established  with gifts in honor  of  Lou Pepper and later supplemented with gifts from Lou and Mollie Pepper.  At Lou’s urging, the fund also honors his late father, Louis H. Pepper, Sr., a dairy farmer in Illinois and Wisconsin.    He was proud of the sire he had in the early 1920s named King Segis Pontiac the Great.  He had a lifelong interest in dairy  cattle  and  dairying.   One of  his favorite pastimes was to watch dairy cattle judging at local and state fairs in the Midwest. It is fitting that he be remembered this way.
