The Victorian Branch Illawarra calf show was held on April 4th at the Kyabram show grounds combining once again with the Guernsey breed for a show, post show BBQ and games.  This year’s judge was Mrs Jessica Achen Gavenlock, of Cherrylock cattle co, Tallygaroopna, Victoria.

The junior and senior handlers classes were sponsored by Agrigene this year and as always were well supported.  Winner of this year’s junior handler went to Darby McClaren parading his heifer, Glencliffe Suzette 817. There were four handlers in the senior category with Charlie Loyld taking first place.

For her junior and reserve junior champion Jessica selected, Lara Sandman Gladys 3, a Kangawarra Sandman daughter owned by Erin Ferguson, and Riversleigh Treble Tulip 18, a daughter of the highly rated Panorama Royal Treble, owned by the Tuhan family.

For her senior champions, Jessica put forward the first and second place getters in the yearling class, both exhibited by the Hayes family and both Storman Jetson daughters. They were Llandovery Storman Lorna 1538 and Llandovery Storman Pride 1559.

The Agrigene Most Successful Exhibitor Award was won by the Hayes family.  Story & photos - Raymond Parker.
