At his Gettysburg farm, President Eisenhower kept a show herd of black Angus cattle that he would enter into livestock shows. Over the years, his livestock won championships at multiple shows including the Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg. The ribbons from these championships are currently displayed in the show barn. Additionally, a herd of Angus cattle can still be seen grazing in the pastures today.
