It was a splitting of hairs judging decision that eventually sashed interbreed dairy champion, the rising six-year-old Holstein Avonlea Fever Suzette-ET exhibited by the Walsh Family, ‘Wild Jasper’ Jaspers Brush.
In the end Lindsay Moxey, Newington Holsteins, Singleton, was called into the cattle ring to choose between Berry Show supreme senior champion and last year’s interbreed intermediate champion, Kathleigh Gun Grace, exhibited by Cherrylock Cattle Co. and bred by Kathleigh Jerseys, Forbes. Both cows amassed equal points and each had won the same number of show ribbons which normally decides the race.
Intermediate champion was awarded to the Holstein Murribrook Atwood Ivy ahead of Jersey Brunchilli Vanahlem Eileen 2, exhibited by Brunchilli Farming Trust, Numbaa via Nowra.
Junior interbreed champion went to the Illawarra Panorama Angeline 48th, exhibited by Brad and Jessica Gavenlock, Cherrylock Cattle Company, Tallygaroopna, Victoria owned in partnership with breeders Kathleigh Farming, Forbes.
