Cumberland Co. Correspondent
CARLISLE (Cumberland Co.)
When Kim Orris performs her
new duties as Cumberland Coun
ty’s 1994 Dairy Princess, she can
speak from the heart and from ex
perience.
For one thing, she is the third
generation of her family to work
the Orris farm near Bloserville.
As dairy princess, she said she
is looking forward to meeting a lot
of people so she can tell people
what dairy farmers to and about
the important product their cows
produce.
She did just that during the
county dairy princess pageant. Or
ris prepared a speech that covered
the history of the dairy animal.
She also looked to the future and
speculated on what the dairy in
dustry of tomorrow might be like.
She knows plenty about the
dairy industry of today since she
helps every day on the two farms
owned by her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Fred Orris.
Those two farms total about
100 acres each. In addition, the
Orrises rent another 400 acres.
Kim’s main daily chores are to
chip in with the milking of the
family’s 54 Holsteins and helping
in the fields. On top of that, she
cares for her own 11 goats.
Her 14-year-old brother, Kevin,
and 9-year-old sister, Kadie, both
help on the farm as well.
Off the farm, Kim, who is a
1993 Big Spring High School
graduate, is very interested in a
variety of activities, including
horseback riding, hunting, fishing,
and cooking and sewing.
She put her sewing skills to
good use when she made the gown
in 4-H that she wore in the dairy
pnncess pageant.
This summer, she will be going
with other Cumberland County
4-H’ers on an exchange trip to
Maine.
Other 4-H activities she has at
tended include Stale Days for
Fashion Revue, Capitol Days, and
the Texas 4-H exchange. She also
is a 4-H day camp counselor and a
4-H ambassador.
She plans to attend Central
Penn Business School to study
computerized accounting.
Three Dairy Maids were named (left-right) Heather Carman, Becky Cornman and
LeAnne Haycock and these new Dairy Maids will assist the 1994 Dairy Princess In
carrying out her duties.
