Deniliquin’s Anthony Michael and his wife Felicity left the 2020 Deniliquin Show proud of their prize Jersey cow, Mayberry Crystal 3, who was named the Supreme Dairy Exhibit.
Judge Emmalea Wishart spent a long time deciding the Supreme winner, a tough decision with three quality cows up for the award.
They were Junior Champion Heifer, Hawova Jacot Jean 2nd, from Finley High School; Senior Champion Heifer, Mayberry Crystal 3, from A. and F. Michael and family; and Champion Cow, Silhouette TBone Extra, from the Steenholdt family.
‘‘I placed the Jersey cow my Supreme today (March 7) just for her overall capacity and strength,’’ Miss Wishart said.
‘‘She is ready to calve, she's calving on the 20th of this month, and I just find that she has got that potential to go on to be an awesome cow.
‘‘I really like the Holstein heifer as well, she was a very close second, but it was just the maturity of the Jersey that put her where she was today.’’
