Skylar, Stella Della overcome obstacles

Skylar Otto is no stranger to hard work. In fact, she spends hours upon hours grooming her black angus heifer, Stella Della, every week. At this year’s Minnesota State Fair, her beloved heifer made Skylar and her parents work a little extra.

In the end, the stress paid off as Skylar and Stella Della earned Grand Champion and Champion status at the big show.
