Recent Dairy Awards

2015 York Fair


During the 2015 York Fair, Rutter’s showed 6 registered Guernsey cows. In total, we won 12 first place ribbons. Throughout the show, the cows were judged in individual classes as well as several group classes, such as pairs or trios. Some of the categories we won were for Jr Champion, Jr Reserve Champion, and Grand Champion. Grand Champion is the highest award possible. On show day, we had 4 generations of the Rutter family either attending or showing at the show.

2016 PA Farm Show

This farm show was extra special because it marks the start of the fifth generations of Rutter’s to have participated, and it marks the second set of Rutter’s twins to be there. At the 2016 Pennsylvania Farm Show, Rutter’s showed 5 registered Guernsey heifers. Throughout the PA Farm Show, Rutter’s received 5 first place ribbons for Jr Champion, Reserve Jr Champion, and Honorable Mention Jr Champion. During the PA Farm Show, daily prizes in the Good Housekeeping contest were awarded. This is based off the cleanliness of the animals, track area, and the farm’s display. Rutter’s also donated an animal for the legislative showmanship contest.

All American Nominations

Each year, the Guernsey Breeders Association picks the 6 best animals nationwide in 14 different age groups. This year we had 3 different animals receive nominations in the respective age categories.

Farm Show 2013

It only makes sense that the dairy that produces the most delicious milk in Pennsylvania, RUTTER’S DAIRY, would participate in the Pennsylvania Farm Show!  In fact, we have a very long streak of consecutive appearances at the Farm Show. Believe it or not, we started showing animals at the show in 1947 and have been back every year since.

We’re taking 5 Guernsey heifers, Luna, Ruffles, Lilybell, Whiskey and Latte to show! You can stop by and say hello to our beautiful bovines beginning Tuesday, January 8th in the North Barn near the Row of Champions and the education exhibits.

Two of our cows will also participate in the Legislative Showmanship competition on Wednesday the 9th at 4PM.  Our animals will be looking their very best that day, not just to impress the judges, but also our York-area state representatives, Keith Gillespie and Mike Waugh, who will be showing them…

The Legislative Showmanship competition will be televised on PCN TV, so be sure to tune in if you can’t be there in person!

The 5 Rutter’s Guernsey cows will take stage Friday the 11th at 8AM in the Guernsey breed dairy show.

We hope you have a great time at the Pennsylvania Farm Show, and we’re wishing the best of luck to Luna, Ruffles, Lilybell, Whisky and Latte!
