Harrisonburg, VA – March 15, 2016 – The Mid-Atlantic Junior Angus Classic (MAJAC) Regional Preview Show saw Cherry Knoll Farm (CKF) return in its winning ways. Last year, the team at CKF had its talented string of junior competitors sweep the divisions, and 2016 proved no different as Tim Fitzgerald and the CKF operation returned to the ring with the formula for success.
Cherry Knoll Farm lead the competition, collecting six championship titles, including two Grand Championship and four Reserve Grand Championship titles.
During the Owned Heifer Show, Sadie Compagnola showed Cherry Knoll Rosebud 1572 to the title of Reserve Grand Champion Heifer, while Lexi Wright showed Cherry Knoll Elsa 1510 to the Reserve Early Junior Champion Female. The big winner of the day was Cailey Dahlquist and Cherry Knoll LVS Elba 1508 claiming the Late Junior Champion Female honor.
The Bred and Owned Heifer Show saw tight competition from numerous competitors; however, it was Bryce Fitzgerald who made CKF proud. He was awarded the Grand Champion Heifer with Cherry Knoll Erica 1544, while Claudia Hissong won the Reserve Grand Champion Heifer with Double C Rosebud 1501. Last but certainly not least, Brody Fitzgerald took home Reserve Senior Champion Female with Cherry Knoll Lady 1481.
The CKF competitors continued to rake in the ribbons throughout the two-day competition, with another division reserve champion win from Brody Fitzgerald with Cherry Knoll Lady 1481 in the Bred and Owned Heifer Show, and several class wins under the CKF-belt.
One of the highest honors was awarded to three of the CKF contenders, the Showmanship Award. HIssong was awarded the Senior Showmanship award, and Bryce took home the Intermediate Showmanship title. Wright rounded out the MAJAC show with the Junior Showmanship title.
