Years ago, while attending Utah State University, I was employed by a Dairy man. I milked 300 head a day for him and worked his fields. It’s one of the ways I was able to earn money to make it through school. On one occasion, he told me of another Dairy man friend of his who named his entire dairy herd after the Sisters in the Relief Society in his ward. It must be a man thing to attach names to things. Brigham Young was no different. He owned something named the “Julia Dean” (This is after the famous Utah actress, Julia Dean Hayne). What was it?
a. A horse
b. A summer cabin
c. A sleigh
d. His farm
a. Dallin H. Oaks
The first appointee to the Quorum of the Twelve in modern Church history to be absent when his calling was announced and sustained was Elder Dallin H. Oaks in 1984. He had been excused to fulfill an obligation oft of state.
