The Natushka Shoemaker Memorial Award was presented to Michelle Browell, of Hopewell, Pa., on January 9, 2011, for exhibiting the Grand Champion Simmental heifer, Feights Suzi Q, at the 2011 Pennsylvania Farm Show Junior Breeding Cattle Show.

The Natushka Shoemaker Memorial Award is presented to the junior member who exhibits the grand champion Simmental heifer at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Junior Breeding Cattle Show. Nat was the longtime secretary of the Pennsylvania Simmental Association and strong advocate of youth Simmental programs, who lost her fight with cancer in July 2007. Nat made significant contributions to the Pennsylvania Simmental Association over the twelve years she served as the Association’s Secretary. She also was instrumental in collecting and tabulating PTP data, which was used by judges for the Simmental breed shows at the Keystone International Livestock Exposition and the Pennsylvania Farm Show. The Pennsylvania Simmental Association hopes to perpetuate the recognition of Nat’s willing, caring spirit and her unselfish devotion of time to Simmental breeders and juniors by the creation of this award.
