TIMONIUM, Md. — Miss Maryland Futurity was honored under the spotlights in the Maryland State Fair’s dairy showring with a lei of flowers and a large banner.

The winning 3-year-old Holstein was Pheasant-Echos Sovrn Witley, exhibited by the Stambaugh family of Pheasant Echo’s Farm in Westminster.

Following introductions of dairy princesses, fair royalty, and fair and show officials, judge Cathy Yeoman of Dover, Okla., placed the class of 13 Holsteins during evening festivities Thursday, Aug. 30.

The remaining top five winners were pulled out and introduced under the spotlights as follows:

Windsor Manor Ze Gidget - ET, Jason Myers, Lease Brothers and Evan Staley, New Windsor, fifth

Savage-Leigh Aspen Dibby, Cindee Savage and Matt and Kelli Welsh, Knoxville, fourth

MD-Maple-Dell Alto Gita, Caitlin Patrick, Woodbine, third

Ladys-Manor San Asha-ET, Mary Smith and My Ladys Manor Farm, Monkton

During the show, Cindee Savage presented a briefcase to John Hall for his work with the event over several decades. Hall retired from chairing the futurity this year.

Jason Zimmerman of Littlestown, Pa., received the Marlin Hoff Memorial Scholarship from the Maryland State Fair.
