The weather was superb but the numbers were down a little on last year at the Goulburn Murray Jersey Breeders Club annual calf show at Numurkah last week.
There were 16 junior handlers ranging in age from two to 14 years old and 30 Jersey calves to create the competition.
Judge Brian Rushton remarked on the excellent skills of the young people and the professional way in which the young cattle were presented.
The show team from Finley High School supported the event and took away the Glenfern Perpetual Shield for Best Maintained Team.
The Supreme Champion Jersey was awarded to Chloe Goodfellow with Gower Park Celebrity Martha’s Joy and Reserve Supreme Champion Jersey went to the Akers’ Loxleigh David Iris.
Entries came from as far afield as Deniliquin, Girgarre, Tallygaroopna and two small handlers from Pakenham.
