After graduating from the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1977, Dr. Fry began a bovine veterinary practice on the Delmarva Peninsula.  His career interest has always centered on production and health issues of dairy cows.  In 1994, after many years of working in traditional dairy operations, he was convinced that a healthy alternative was to manage and feed cows with the principles of Managed Intensive Grazing.  To that extent Dr. Fry has become a partner in a grazing, seasonal breeding Jersey herd in Kennedyville, Maryland.  He continues to practice veterinary medicine on dairy herds in his local area and provides consulting services to producers in the Northeast US.

Judy Gifford




Raised on a small dairy farm in Connecticut, Judy has always loved cows. She worked for sixteen years in the public sector before realizing her dream job of owning and milking her own cows. Upon graduating from the University of Connecticut with a degree in Animal Science, she accepted a job as a 4-H and Youth Development Specialist in eastern Connecticut.  A Masters degree in public administration led to an internship at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.  After six years, Judy was offered a job in the office of a Congressman from Wisconsin to work on dairy issues.  Two years later, she became a lobbyist for the National Milk Producers Federation.  Finally, in 1996, Judy and her partner, Robert Fry, bought a farm on the eastern shore of Maryland and she became a full time dairy farmer.
