BOURBON COUNTY PAIR TOPS SUPER COW-CALF SHOW
Grand champion of the September 14 Super Cow-Calf Show at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson was a pair exhibited by Gale George with G3 Cattle of Uniontown. The reserve grand champion pair was shown by Erica Rahmeier of Sylvan Grove.
Third place winner was a cow and calf owned by Kent Rahmeier of Sylvan Grove. Fourth was awarded to a pair exhibited by Tom Carney from Sylvan Grove. Rounding out the top five finishers was a cow-calf pair entered by Emily Carney, also from Sylvan Grove.
Entries consisting of one cow and her natural steer or heifer calf were shown in pasture condition, with no fitting allowed. Cattle were evaluated using a two-judge system, with rankings based on a phenotypic score combined with an index score accounting for age and performance data.
Sponsors of the show included ABS-Sandra Utter-Levering, Reno County Farm Bureau, Valley Vet Supply; Central City Scale and Blattner Livestock Equipment.
