Owned and exhibited by Reg Cochrane Pastoral, Sally also won the senior Udder and Attachment and according to one observer, Lloyd Peters, was the cow to beat from the moment he walked into the sheds.

Paul Ringland's View Mount Poppy 39 won the champion's ribbon in the Intermediate classes over two of Tim & Natalie Cochrane's exhibits, Kangawarra Clarrie 3356 and Kangawarra Samantha 3197, in the Reserve and Honourable Mention positions respectively.
