Harrisburg - SC-Creek Yum Yum won Best Doe in Show Award in the Junior Dairy Goat Show Thursday, Jan. 13, at the 2011 Pennsylvania Farm Show. Yum Yum, a two-year-old Saanen goat, was exhibited by 14-year-old Jacob Fetrow of Dover, York County.
Judge Barbara Norcross of Havenhill, N.H., explained that Yum Yum excelled above the rest of the Best of Breeds due to her superior mammary system. Norcross is an American Dairy Goat Association advanced judge with 28 years of judging.
Norcross said, "I witnessed excellent showmanship and participation by all youth involved today, and I thank them for coming out to show us their excellent animals."
Seven breeds and divisions were represented in the contest, including Alpine, LaMancha, Nubian, Saanen, Toggenburg, All Other Purebreds, and Recorded Grades. More than 60 animals were shown in the youth contest.
