The owner of the champion Best Bred and Owned cow of the 2016 All-American Dairy Show, to be named during the show's Supreme Champion Pageant September 22, will earn use of an Eby aluminum stock trailer for one year.
The pageant is the finale of the All-American Dairy Show, which runs September 17-22, at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg.
The gooseneck trailer is 24 feet long, 8 feet wide and 6-and-a-half feet high, and will carry special logos noting its prized cargo.
"Thanks to this generous donation, one of our deserving exhibitors will not only have the convenience of a new stock trailer, but will help to promote the All-American Dairy Show throughout the next year," said Agriculture Secretary Russell C. Redding. "Breeding this caliber of cattle is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the exhibitors that attend our show, and it's an honor to have them under our roof."
Last year's champion Best Bred and Owned was the Grand Champion Brown Swiss, four-year-old Kar-Linn Wondrmnt Reese ET, owned by Jeff Brown of Jackson Center, Ohio.
Eby Trailers is sponsoring the prize for the fourth year. M. H. Eby Inc., headquartered in Blue Ball, Lancaster County, features additional sales and service locations in Indiana, Iowa, Ohio and South Dakota.
