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.
