The All Breeds Youth Show and Youth Showmanship classes took centre stage at International Dairy Week on Monday.
Milawa’s Ellie Hourigan led Darryn Vale Tequila Satin to the Grand Champion Heifer title, while Tatura’s Easterbrook family won Reserve Grand Champion with Pooley Bridge Attwood Jade 2, led by Jett Easterbrook.
Canadian judge Brent Walker said the two cows he chose as grand and reserve champion were clearly above the rest of the pack.
‘‘They were the cows that jumped out for me and looked like they were the two that were to win the top awards,’’ he said.
‘‘They were really good uddered, they had really good feet and legs and were able to move well and they were cows that had some strength about them.’’
