MURRAY BRIDGE SHOW Sept 24th

MURRAY BRIDGE SHOW 2016

Judge Josh Smith, “Joshlee”, Deloraine Tasmania, faced a total of 8 exhibitors when he judged the Illawarras at Murray Bridge Show on September 24th 2016. He also judged the Interbreed along with the other 3 breed judges, and then the 8-11 years Junior Handler Class.

“To start the day with the under 6 month old calf I noticed a trend that would continue throughout the day; that the heifers & cows put before me were very high quality animals. My Junior Champion was a very long and correct heifer that had amazing balance and was correct throughout. My Intermediate Champion was an amazing young cow with an udder that was welded on. Senior Champion was a cow that just had everything, width, high wide udder, correct teat placement, power and strength. The group of 3 was a tremendous group of cows all with balanced well snug udders and uniformity throughout, going on to win Interbreed Pen of Three Females”.
