MEADOW Vale has taken out all three Guersney gongs during the breed judging at the Sydney Royal Show.

Kicking off Dungog locals Julie and Michael Moore's winning streak was Meadow Vale Yogigarrett Quaint, a 26-month-old daughter of US sire Golden J Yogibear Garrett from Meadow Vale Banger Mal Quaint, that secured them the junior champion female sash.

Described as a female that would calve down with an amazing udder by judge Michael Hentshcke,Glencoe, Southy Australia, the female was the first of more champions to come for the pair.

Yogigarrett Quaint was placed over the Moore's younger female, Meadow Vale Pistol Laura, a daughter of Marodore Gary Pistoll from Glencrest Perfect Pie Laura, that was named reserve junior champion over the honourable mention female from Martin Downes, Brookleigh Immeta.

The Moores secured intermediate champion female with Meadow Vale Garrett Quaint, a female that was admired by Mr Hentschke for her power, structure and balance.

Also by the US sire in Golden J Yogibear Garrett, and from Meadow Vale VC Quaint, she placed first in the female over two and a half and not over three years, in milk, class before going all the way in her division.

"I admire the frame of this female, she covers a lot of ground and she is long and wide. This power and spring of rib, combined with good structure and balance is what got her over the females below her," Mr Hentschke said.

Rounding up the Moore's winning streak, and possibly the most significant of them all, was their senior champion win with Jason Park Julius Lindy - a female they purchased in about 2015 at International Dairy Week.

By another US sire, Accerlerated Golden Genetics Julius, from Jason Park Victor, the rising seven-year-old also took home best senior udder.

"This female has maturity and balance, with length and dairyness," Mr Hentschke said. "She has height and width of udder with good texture."

On a high with the results this year, Ms Moore said they purchased the senior champion female because they loved the dairyness about her, and her composition.

"She was also the senior champion in 2017 at the Sydney Show," she said.

Progeny from Meadow Vale Mentor Joyful took out the dam's progeny group class for the Moores who also were awarded first place in the three females not over two years class, first in the three females of any age class, and first in the five females, any age section.

Stuart Moore of Fernbrook stud, exhibited the reserve intermediate champion, Marloo Caspian United, while reserve senior champion was Alembry Phoenix Sunflower from the Alembry Guernsey stud, Gerringong.

Best intermediate udder went to Meadow View Lat Tinkle from Brian and Murray Russell, Albion Park, who also was the honourable mention of the intermediate division.

The final honourable mention of the day in the senior classes went to Alembry Mentor Sunflower from Alembry Guernseys, Gerringong.
