Comments from Tammy Voegeli

In a small but quality show my junior champion, the fall yearling, has the advantage of just being a bit more cleaner from end to end and showing me a bit more for rib and openness to a rib today then our reserve junior champion. My reserve, the summer yearling, has a lot of strength and balance throughout, and I feel is well grown for her age. I just would like to see her a bit sharper across the shoulder and out through her hips and pins to gain that junior champion title. Congratulations!

In our cows for grand champion with a single entry dry cow, a beautiful framed cow showing superb quality today. I would love to see this cow in bloom, and I feel she could handle a lot of competition. Congratulations!

Comments from Tammy Voegeli

In a really competitive Brown Swiss heifer show, I found two heifers, for me, that sorted themselves up to the top of the classes.  Your fall calf being junior champion with her edge of just having tremendous balance and style throughout. I love the long clean head and neck, the sharpness down her top line and her correctness out to her rump structure today. In addition, I do appreciate how she walks out correctly on both her front and rear legs.  She gets the nod over a beautiful dairy summer yearling, a mid-July heifer that I feel has a lot of things you need to appreciate. She’s got beautiful openness and sweep to her rib and is correct out through that rump, but she just gives up a little bit of depth of fore rib today. And I would like to see her fuller in her crops and having a little bit more strength up through her front end. But these two heifers, I feel, could handle a lot of in person competition out on the tanbark. Congratulations!

In the cow classes for your grand and reserve I thought it was a close placing, but I gave the nod to the junior three-year-old. She’s just a beautiful quality cow. She just blends so nicely in that fore udder attachment.  I love the view from behind and when she moves out on her feet and legs, she moves out so fluidly and comfortably on her rear legs today. In addition, she just shows me a little bit more style up through that front end over our age cow, a cow that you admire her depth of body but would like to see her a bit snugger in her attachments and fuller at the top of her rear udder. I do consider it a close placing. Congratulations!

Comments from Mark Rueth:

A pair of nice heifers for junior champions.  I’m going with the spring yearling in close placings over the winning winter yearling. To me, she is better in the way she walks on her legs.  She tracks straighter on her rear legs and is more level over her top.  Both heifers have beautiful balance of rib and are well grown. Congratulations!

These are two beautifully uddered cows for champion.  I’m going with the Junior three over the young cow on her width and volume of udder here today.  She also is a bit nicer in the fore udder.  In addition, she has more with of frame and size here today.  The young cow has a beautiful udder and just needs time but has a great future. Congratulations to the winners.

Comments from Mark Rueth:

Junior champion goes to the spring yearling, an incredible heifer that is very balanced in her rib and extremely nice over her top.  She goes over the summer yearling on her spring and depth of rib and a little more overall size, and width for her age.   The summer yearling is also a very stylish and balanced heifer. They make a great pair. Congratulations!

For Grand Champion, I’m going with the beautiful uddered 4-year- old and the impressive young Junior two.    The 4-year- old has an incredible udder and uses her maturity in calving to show more width and height of rear udder and overall volume of udder to go over the young Junior two. Additionally, the 4-year-old is also more dairy today and a bit stronger over the top. Congratulations.

Comments from Tammy Voegeli

For our Jersey junior champion and reserve, the winter yearling will be your junior champion. A beautiful big powerful heifer, long from end to end, love the width between her pins and the correctness from hooks to pins. In addition, I prefer how she walks out on her rear legs. She has less set to her hock and has her thurls placed more centrally beneath her than our reserve junior champion, the spring yearling. The spring yearling, a beautiful front ended heifer, and a beautiful sweep and drop to both her fore and rear rib. Congratulations!

For champion cow, the five-year-old gets the nod because she has the best udder. I love the pop that she has to the top of her udder and the width that she shows throughout with a strong crease from top to bottom. In addition, she has her front teats placed more centrally under the quarters when you look at them from the rear. I also admire the balance she shows from end to end over our four-year-old that will be your reserve champion. Another cow beautiful framed cow, long from end to end. I’d just like to tuck those front teats underneath her quarters just a little bit, and have a smoother blending fore udder. Congratulations!

In our Milking Shorthorn show, it’s a close placing for junior champion, but I’m gonna give the nod to the summer yearling. She is just extremely long from end to end and showing me a bit more width between her pins than the short-aged October calf. That fall calf is another calf that you love the style in her lines and walks out on a great set of feet and legs. I would just like to give her a little bit more width in those pins and stretch her out, but I think that’ll come with time. Congratulations!

For champion cow, it’s again, real close, but I’m going to give the nod to our senior three-year-old with just a bit more frame for me, and depth throughout. I love the front end, the beautiful high chine, long, clean dairy neck and just a bit more pleasing out through that rump, when you watch her from the side. In addition, she shows me just a bit more capacity, I believe, in the udder, over the senior two-year-old. The senior two-year-old is another real nice individual that walks on a great set of feet and legs and I will give her the advantage of being a bit more level across her udder floor than our champion cow, but again another close placing. Congratulations!

 

Supreme Champion Cow – The Holstein

Tex-Stein Mccutch Keyonamei, Stookeyholm & Steinberger

Reserve Supreme Champion – The Guernsey

Howacres C Matilda-TW, Emily Fisher

Reasons for Supreme Selection from Mark Rueth:

For Supreme Champion cow, we are going with the Holstein cow. She has the best udder of the show.   Her udder is stunning and has tremendous width and height, and beautiful fore udder that is loaded with vienation,  plus really nice teat placement.  She is a real dairy cow, we just love her.  She uses her great udder to overwhelm her competition. She goes over the Guernsey, showing more bloom and capacity to her udder, she is also a bit more dairy, and clean in her frame.  The Guernsey, also a really nice cow with a great udder, and nice balanced frame goes over the Milking Shorthorn who is our Supreme Honorable Mention. The Guernsey has the advantage in the udder, being more correct in the floor of her udder and more correct in her teat placement.  She also walks better on her rear legs. Congratulations!
