Five County Fair Dairy Show winners named
Eight local youth exhibited 20 head of dairy cattle in the 2015 Five County Fair Dairy Show.
These youth were judged in two categories — showmanship and conformation. Showmanship evaluates the ability of the individual to properly manage and display their animal. Conformation, on the other hand, evaluates the physical traits and potential productivity of the animal being displayed.
Showmanship results were as follows: 14-19 years old — Bridgette Landis first; Ryan Hamlet second; Brooke Landis third and Cassie Long fourth; 8-13 years old — Caroline Seal first; Henry Landis second and Harold Landis third; 5-7 years old — Kelly Womack first.
In the Holstein department, the grand champion was a 4-year-old dry cow exhibited by Caroline Seal, and the reserve champion was a junior yearling heifer shown by Bridgette Landis.
In the Jersey department, both the grand champion, a 3-year-old dry cow, and the reserve champion, a senior heifer calf, were exhibited by Ryan Hamlet.
