By Rodney Woods

The Sieben family, from Torrumbarry, outclassed the rest of the 200 entrants who competed in the International Dairy Week All Breeds National Youth Show, after the family's cow was awarded the Grand Champion Heifer for 2020.

Paraded around the Tatura Park ring by Georgia Sieben, Brindabella Solomon R Midge also won the Senior Champion In Milk Heifer class on its way to overall glory on January 20.

“Listening to his (judge Waylon Barron) comments on the microphone of all the classes, he was obviously very, very impressed,” IDW founder Brian Leslie said.

Mr Leslie said entrants came from all over Australia as well as overseas.

Georgia said she was overwhelmed with the win.

“It's pretty exciting, I'm a bit overwhelmed,” she said.

“I wasn't expecting it.”
