4-H Roundup; 31 To District Show
At ithe two-day counity 4-H
dairy roundup, held this week
at the Guernsey Sale Pavilion,
quite a few of last year’s win
ners proved lightning could
strike twice.
In the Holstein division on
Monday, Richard Rutt of Quar
ryville R 2 retained the title
he won last year with Twinkle
Edgefield Star Sequoia The
four-year-old cow also again
proved her worth. She will not
be one of the 31 animals eligi
ble for the district show Au
gust 25 at Hershey, however,
because Rutt has sold her to
another area Holstein breeder
the county 4-H dairy roundup this year.
But this mil be the last time Rutt and
Twinkle will appear in the show ring
together as Dick sold the 4-year-old cow
to another Holstein breeder this week.
