Karen Holloway, Darlington, Md. Judge for beef cattle show Karen Holloway has seen some of the best cattle in the state of Maryland, but this year was her first as a judge for the beef cattle show at the Washington County Ag Expo and Fair. Holloway said judges look for well-structured and healthy cattle. "The females have to look feminine and pretty like a female, and the males have to look masculine," she said Wednesday. Holloway said the hope is the traits they are looking for will be passed on to the cattle's young.

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- These days, the Pennsylvania Farm Show hardly is about the countless competitions that are held throughout the week. While a ribbon always is nice, there's a sort of understanding between the entrants to the show. "It's basically just about being here with other people -- cattle people -- and we share our ideas," said Steve Upperman, 49, of Chambersburg, Pa. "A lot of people think it's about the best animal, but it's also about communication and talking about what's going on around the show.

MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - Carla J. Kitchen has sold fruit since she was big enough to bag a half bushel, but too little to hand the bag to the customers. "We sold on the Baltimore market when I was little," the Berkeley County third-generation orchardist said last week. "You packed everything Saturday night and put it on the truck, ... left Sunday afternoon and you went to the market. "My granddaddy did the same thing. " These days, Kitchen, 51, is being recognized for doing things differently at Kitchen's Farm, which she has run since 1987.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A 39-year-old man accused of selling a man's cattle and pocketing the money was arraigned Monday on one count of grand larceny in Berkeley County Magistrate Court. Robert Mitchell Boyd of Bunker Hill, W.Va., was released on personal recognizance after Magistrate Jim Humphrey set a $10,000 bond, according to court records. Boyd is accused of selling at least five animals between June 2006 and May 2007 when he was a caretaker of Mill Creek Farm in Bunker Hill, according to a complaint filed by Berkeley County Sheriff's Department Deputy Lt.

You can hardly have a farm without cows, can you? Of course not, although it would certainly be less stressful. At least it's stressful if you get some of those cows that, in my view, are high maintenance, always having to be milked. Or sheltered, or fed, or watered. My job is demanding enough, I don't want my livestock to be the same way. So I set out to discover the least labor-intensive breed of cattle in existence, and my research led me to the "Belted Galloway," one of a number of interesting heritage breeds that are outside of the Angus/Holstein mainstream.

CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. -- Four cattle were killed during Wednesday's torrential storm in Jefferson County when a barn along Kabletown Road collapsed on the animals, according to the county's emergency manager. The owner of the cattle put the animals in the barn to protect them from flying debris in the storm, Barbara Miller said. When the barn collapsed, three pregnant cows and a young bull were killed, Miller said. Two other pregnant cows that were injured had to be euthanized and two other injured cows were still being assessed, Miller said.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Commissioner of Agriculture Gus R. Douglass is warning West Virginia sheep and cattle farmers to be on the lookout for signs of epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD), which has been observed in cattle in Ohio and West Virginia, although confirmatory testing is not yet complete. It can also be contracted by sheep, and has been observed in deer in numerous states, according to a news release from the West Virginia Department of Agriculture. The agency said the disease is spread by the bite of blood-feeding midges - a gnat-like fly - not by animal-to-animal transmission.
