BY WENDY WEHR
YORK Most people think of 4-
H as a family affair, and the
results of the 4-H dairy show at the
York Fair on Wednesday seemed
to follow that theory. Sisters from
the Boyer family of York even
away with champion
honors in two different breeds.
Bridgette Boyer showed her
senior 2-year-old, Sunnybend Sexy
Glitter B Star, to the senior and
grand champion titles in the
Holstein show. She also captured
the champion showman title for all
breeds due to her presence in the
ring and attentiveness to the judge.
Meanwhile, Jenelle Boyer
picked up a few ribbons of her own,
including the reserve grand
champion rosette in the Guernsey
show with her 3-year-old Shelby.
Shelby and her daughter also won
the dam and daughter class for
Jenelle and Bridgette’s parents,
Tom and June Boyer, breed and
own Holsteins, the exception being
Jenelle’s two Guernseys. She won
Shelby as a calf at a Guernsey
meeting, and her decision to raise
and show the calf -axis to have
reserve grand championships in both the 4-H and open shows
at the York Fair. At the halter of the reserve champion is Mel
a 4-H dairy family affair
been a good one.
Good decisions, along with
family support, were important
factors for the other champion
Mike Welsh of East Berlin
showed his dam and daughter to
win the grand and reserve grand
championships in the Brown Swiss
show. McCoy Delegate Princess,
the 7-year-old reserve grand, was
one of the first animals that Mike
purchased. He chose Princess
despite the opinions of his parents,
said his mother, Emily Welsh.
Princess’ three-year-old daughter
captured the grand champion
Brown Swiss title for Mike. At age
16 Mike has been showing for nine
For Chad Rutter, a good
breeding decision rather than a
good buying decision helped him
into the winners’ circle. His
homebred senior yearling, Opal,
was awarded the grand cham
pionship in the Guernsey show.
Rutter Brothers Top-Dollar Opal
was named an all-American junior
calf and also won first prize in a
national open show in Kentucky.
