More than 2,000 animals were brought to the All-American Dairy Show in Harrisburg, Pa.
Even in these times of struggles, most exhibitors were all smiles as they showed their best animals for the All-American judges. Most exhibitors showing here go on to compete at World Dairy Expo with several past All-American champions winning big in Madison.
But there was only one top champion, and that honor went to Oakfield WB Tiffany ET, a 4-year-old Holstein owned by Oakfield Corners Dairy of Oakfield, N.Y.
American Agriculturist spent a few hours watching exhibitors make their final preps for the supreme champion show as well as watching the judges evaluate the competitors. Get a closer look by clicking through the slideshow.
