She also has a one-year old angus heifer (girl cow) named Flo that Jodie and her father rescued during Hurricane Florence. “I’m so excited and amazed to be having my 12th anniversary of showing at the Luzerne County Fair this year. I’m also so excited to meet all of you at the Luzerne County Fair this year as your 2019 Miss Luzerne County Fair Queen”, said Salansky
