The All-American Dairy Show, held Sept. 17-22 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, featured six days of high-quality dairy cattle, youth activities and industry meetings. For the first year in the show's 48-year history, Progressive Dairyman attended the event, giving away magazines and sponsoring the daily Barn Grazing newsletter. Each day the newsletter featured trivia questions, and those who were the first to answer received a free Proud to Dairy hat.
Check out the video below to see one winner, Victoria Daubert of Pine Grove, Pennsylvania, describe what makes her Proud to Dairy.

The show has a strong youth focus, featuring contests in dairy judging and showmanship that are open to all junior exhibitors across the nation.
The All-American officially concludes each year with the Pennsylvania Dairy Princess Pageant. This year, Gabrielle Murphy of Airville, Pennsylvania, was crowned the 55th Pennsylvania Dairy Princess. The two alternate dairy princesses are Deidra Bollinger of Lancaster County and Courtney Brant of Somerset County. PD
