Cowman Joe Benson looks back over fifteen years and recalls the story of Blizzard, the prize winning Guernsey, and her faithfull keeper, Billy Brandon. For years, Billy raised and pampered Blizzard, entered her in several cattle shows, and finally at the National Guernsey show in Waterloo, Iown, he was awarded the Grand Championship for the all around animal in the breed. On advice, Billy suffered many disappointments before this, foregoing Blizzard's entrance in shows order to wait until the cow was at the peak of her maturity and could meet the highest standards of judgment. All the preparation and hard work pays off in the end as Blizzard makes her grand entrance and achieves the pinnacle of perfection. The plot is secondary to the interesting study of a cowboy's real work, its everyday routines, its excitement and rewards.
