BEDFORD, Pa. — Competition was stiff in the dairy shows at the Bedford County Fair. Two familiar faces appeared in the ring often. One was that of Dana Cessna of Cessna farms south of Clearville. This Holstein farm has been winning awards at the fair on a regular basis and took home this year’s supreme championship.

Another was that of Aaron Gable, who was back with the reserve supreme, a Guernsey. Gable, a part of the Snider Homestead Farm in New Enterprise, has been showing cattle since he was big enough to hold the lead. He follows in the footsteps of both his mother, Bernetta Gable, and his grandfather, Bernard Snider.

The supreme champion represented the annual dairy basket at the livestock sale on Saturday. The basket was purchased by Don Fair of Nutritional Consulting and Stand Up Hoof Care. Fair paid $1,650 for the basket, which included a wagon full of dairy products donated by Manor Meadows Farm and Beverly’s Touch of Class, a windmill donated by Tractor Supply and a host of gift cards.
