Manager Tim Lord was very happy with the win.

"This is the first time I've won supreme of the whole show here," he said.

"We've had interbreed divisions before, but never supreme of the show, so it's all worth it."

"This cow's calved at 22 months and it's done the local shows throughout autumn and now the calves' at the maximum age so I'll wean her when we get her home."

Mr Lord will now starting getting the winning cow ready for the show circuit in two years time.

"We're going to set this cow to go to Sydney in 2021 with a big calf," he said.

"We're just about to join her again to calve next spring."

KO Angus went one further to also win the supreme junior beef breed female with KO Vicky P66, ahead of the reserve interbreed junior female Ausbred Caribben Pearl from Ausbred Simmentals, Kurmond.
