EDGAR AND SWEET THING GIVE BEEF CATTLE JUDGES ‘SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT BACK HOME’
Greene, Northampton County Exhibitors Take Top Awards
1/10/2011

Harrisburg  - The cattle of the open beef show at the 2011 Pennsylvania State Farm Show gave judges Brad Skaar and Doug Parrett a workout as they sorted through the more than 250 entries.

But ultimately James Campbell's Maine-Anjou heifer was proclaimed Supreme Champion Beef Female. Sweet Thing was exhibited by Campbell Show Calves, Sycamore, Greene County. Campbell Show Calves also exhibited the grand champion Simmental female.

Supreme Champion Bull honors went Jamie Brozman's Angus bull calf, Just Enuff New Edition Edgar, of Just Enuff Angus, Nazareth, Northampton County.

The thrill of being proclaimed the premier bull or female wasn't lost on either farm, as Brozman admitted, "I don't know if it's set in yet. I'm speechless." The family, including Brozman, and her parents Ned and Linda Hower, first showed at Farm Show in 1996, with a heifer purchased in the Spring of 1995. Since then, Brozman's husband Gerald Brozman has joined the Angus operation.

Skaar and Parrett had problems deciding between the champion females. Earlier, when evaluating the champion Limousin heifer calf class, Skaar mentioned, "I didn't realize the Limousin breed was so strong in Pennsylvania. These high-quality cattle will give me another subject to talk about back in Iowa."
