COWRA locals took a clean sweep of all ribbons in the Miniature Hereford ring of the Royal Canberra Show, with last year's two champions notching up another major win.

Palisade Ernie was the senior and grand champion bull that went all the way, defeating Palisade Donna the senior and grand champion female for the supreme exhibit sash.

Both were exhibited by Sue Parish of Palisade Miniature Herefords, Cowra.

Sired by Maloon Kellen and out of the Palisade Ashley female, the three-year-old bull was also the grand champion bull of the event in 2019.

Judge Sam Hunter of Agstock, Yass, said it was his length and sires appeal, combined with added condition that got him in the top position.

"There is a lot of length about this bull ... he has a smooth shoulder, and a lot of extension through that front end and sire outlook," Mr Hunter said.

The grand champion female, Palisade Donna, was a four-year-old daughter of Palisade Gandolf out of Palisade Barbra and showed with a bull calf-at-foot.

With only one junior female entered, junior champion went to Palisade Gloria, a 14-month-old heifer by Maloon Kellen and from Palisade Barbra.

A full sibling to the junior champion was awarded reserve senior champion female was 26-month-old Palisade Fraya.
