A cow bred and shown by Aurelia farmer Vernon Winterhof was named the Grand Champion Guernsey at the Clay County Fair in Sept. Winterhof's Logic Brioche, a five year old cow, received the honor from among the cattle shown by seven exhibitors from three states. Paired with her seven year old dam, the group was also the first place daughter-dam group.
Brioche's March calf (grandson Marcus Hinkeldey's 4-H project calf) won first place honors in its class over the calf that had placed first at the Minnesota State Fair.
Also exhibiting in the open class was Cherokee County 4-H'er Renae Hinkeldey (Vernon's granddaughter). Her two heifers both received third place in their respective classes.
