The special print had a pencil drawing of the Milking Shorthorn head at the bottom, sketched by the artist Bonnie Bohr. The AMSS board of directors purchased the print for $1000. Hoard's Dairyman donated a print to each of the seven breed associations to be auctioned to raise funds for youth programs.

With Hoard’s Dairyman’s 125th anniversary last year, Hoard's Dairyman donated two prints of the new Foster Mothers of the Human Race to each breed association for their youth programs. This Foster Mothers print, donated to the Red and White Dairy Cattle Association, was specially remarqued with the Red and White cow head at the bottom of the artwork by artist Bonnie Mohr. It sold for $650 to Ray and Kelly Van Der Wielen of Canada on July 23, 2011 at the annual Red and White Convention banquet. A summary of the convention is here.

The remarqued Foster Mothers print featuring the Jersey will be sold on Sunday, November 7 in Louisville, Ky., at the All-American Jersey Show, which is held at the North American International Livestock Expo. The 58th All American Jersey Sale begins promptly at 5 p.m., with the sale of the remarqued print, followed by the sale of the featured 80 live consignments.
The remarqued print is unique in that it includes a pencil etching highlighting the Jersey cow in the lower corner of the print. There are only two of these remarqued Jersey prints. One hangs in the offices of the American Jersey Cattle Association as part of its permanent art collection, and the other is to be auctioned to support Jersey youth programs. Hoard's Dairyman has donated two prints to each of the seven breeds represented in the painting.
Remarqued prints are the ultimate collector's item and typically command two or three times the value of limited edition prints. Any member of the American Jersey Cattle Association can assist you in participating in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The print is #44/1250 to commemorate Hoard's Dairyman's 125th Anniversary.

The cover of the Wisconsin State Journal prominently displayed Hoard’s Dairyman’s “Foster Mothers of the Human Race” painting created by artist Bonnie Mohr. Today’s paper talks about the artist and how painting this image was certainly a “crowning achievement” in the life of Bonnie Mohr–the artist.
With the 125th Anniversary of Hoard’s Dairyman, Bonnie Mohr painted the updated Foster Mothers of the Human Race painting, which depicts the seven dairy breeds recognized by the Purebred Dairy Cattle Association. The print is on display, and one lucky Expo attendee will win the print in a drawing.
Signed and numbered prints are being sold (for $95) in the Coliseum booth from 12-1 on Friday and Saturday. Bonnie is spending that hour each day of World Dairy Expo signing prints and June Hoard’s Dairyman Anniversary issue covers (June issues also for sale at the booth). Come meet the artist and purchase your own Foster Mothers of the Human Race.

The Bonnie Mohr Studio and Glenmark Genetics (the dairy herd of John and Bonnie Mohr) was a stop on the National Holstein Convention tour. This candid photo was taken on Sunday, June 27 at the farm in Glencoe, Minnesota. John and Bonnie were hosts to hundreds of people into their home, art studio, and tie stall barn. Everyone who went through the food line saw these two images (the print and the quote that inspired it), including eight buses and many carloads of people.
There were many positive comments on the "Foster Mothers of the Human Race" painting. Bonnie had extra staff on duty to assist customers with their purchases during the tour stop.
