- Virginia Spring Show
The Virginia Spring Show was held Saturday, April 7th at the Rockingham County fairgrounds in Harrisonburg. It was a beautiful spring day as Amanda Stiles Lutz from South Carolina judged 50 head. The Grand Champion was four year old, Mer-Gold Jet Montana, who said “win with me with her style, balance and correct mammary system.” She is owned by Janney Holsteins and Malorie Rhoderick. Judge Lutz chose winning senior two year old, Ron-Rou Lou Kay as the Reserve champion of the show with Heiz-Acres Mailing Fish, first place five year old, as Honorable Mention champion of this year’s show.
Two Aftershocks rose to the top of the heifer classes with their balance and correctness. Junior champion, owned by Steve Zirkle and James and Julie Barb of New Market, was Butlerview After Alameda-ET, the winning fall yearling. Judge Lutz followed with the same pattern naming winter yearling, Ron-Rou Aftershock Sprinkle as reserve junior champion, owned by Ron-Rou Holsteins of Mount Solon. (source: holsteinworld.com)
