2012 Stark County Fair The SCCA was a new supporter this year of the Carcass Show. Each participant whose steer carcass was judged at “Choice” or better was awarded $100 from the SCCA for a job well done. We hope to continue encouraging our youth participation in this class so that we can impress upon them the value of proper care, feeding, and nutrition of their animals.

The Stark County Cattlemen’s Association Distinguished Youth Award recipients for 2012 are Dana Ward and Kara Humphrey. Each was presented with a check for $1000 at the beginning of the Steer Auction on Saturday night. Dana Ward is the daughter of Mark & Amy Ward. She will be attending Walsh University and hopes to become a veterinarian. Kara Humphrey is the daughter of Bruff & Yvette Humphrey. She is in her second year at Ohio State University ATI, also majoring in large animal science. Congratulations to both of these young ladies and best of luck from the Stark County Cattlemen’s Association! Thank you cards from Dana and Kara related that our generosity makes it possible for young people to achieve their dreams of a college education. Our invaluable scholarship supporters this year were once again Kelly Palmer Insurance, Hometown Veterinary Service, and Consumers’ National Bank. Please accept our sincere appreciation for all you do for our Association and our local communities.

The SCCA was once again a proud sponsor and supporter of the 2012 Born and Raised Breeders class at the Fair. As an Association, we paid $25 , $15, and $10 to the top three winners in each weight division, and an additional $200 and $100 to the Champion and Reserve Champion.
