TIMONIUM, Md. — Savage-Leigh Leona, a Holstein aged cow owned by Chip Savage of Savage-Leigh Farm in Union Bridge, was honored as the open supreme champion senior dairy female at the Maryland State Fair Friday, Aug. 31.

Judge Steve Wagner commended her for her extreme openness in the front when selecting her as the winner.

The open supreme champion junior dairy female banner was presented to the Red and White champion, a fall yearling, Whitdale D Hvezda Sky-Red. The winning entry was by Chris and Jen Hill, Richard Green and Chad Umbel of Thurmont.

“She’s a heifer that wows you with size, scale and frame,” said Judge Matt Lawrence.

Contenders in the ring for the supreme senior and junior champion titles came from the seven breed shows held over several days in the Cow Palace at the fairgrounds.

In the open Ayrshire show, senior and grand champion honors went to Vales-Pride Santiago Eden, the 4-year-old exhibited by Michael and Mark Valentine of Vales-Pride Farm, Emmitsburg.
