Top Cattle To Gather At All-American Dairy Show

Top Cattle To Gather At All-American Dairy Show

All-American Dairy Show will bring more than 2,500 dairy cattle to Harrisburg, Pa., beginning this weekend.

Come this weekend, more than 2,500 head of the best dairy cattle in the nation and Canada plus more than 1,100 of the best dairy exhibitors will be rolling into Harrisburg, Pa. They're coming to compete in the 51st All-American Dairy Show at the State Farm Show Complex.

"The All-American is more than a showcase of the best dairy stock in the country," says Show President Alan McCauley. "It's an experience with interests for every dairy producer" – especially those looking for top-quality breeding stock.

GREAT CATTLE; SHARP-EYE EXHIBITORS: The combination makes the All-American Dairy Show one of the nation's best.

Winners all
The show packs 22 dairy shows into six days, with four days dedicated to youth shows, contests and programs. The winner with the Supreme Champion Bred and Owned cow will travel home pulling a new Eby gooseneck stock trailer for one year's use.

Animals and exhibitors aren't the only ones eligible for prizes. Attendees of the Supreme Champion Pageant on Sept. 18 are eligible to win the 2.5 ton PolyDome grain bin worth nearly $1,500.

The All-American also features the nation's only all-dairy antiques show. This year's trade show is expanding with artists, clothing retailers, feed companies, food vendors, industry organizations, show suppliers and other exhibitors.

Parking and admission are free. For more All-American Dairy Show details, visit s or call 717-787-2905.
