Barring unforseen circumstances a maternal sister to a production record holder and show ring champion, will be the calf raffled at the Royal Adelaide Show this year. Glenbrook Venus 30 is a maternal sister to Glenbrook Venus 19 EX2E who is the current holder of the ICSA production record for Mature Butterfat and Protein and Senior 3 Milk and Protein and Senior 1 Milk and Protein. The calf's Dam isn't too shabby either, producing 50901 litres from six lactations and as a nine year old produced 10861 litres for 357 Fat and 327 Protein in 305 days.
While the Maternal Sister has been outstanding in the showring and the Real Australian Photo Competition, going on to be named World Aged Cow Champion in 2013, the Dam, Glenbrook Venus 15 also won her class at the Adelaide Royal Show in 2007.
