The 2015 Victorian Red Cow on Farm challenge saw a total of one hundred and sixty three cows judged over a period of six days throughout the three dairying regions of Victoria. The judge was Janette Falls of Pasadena Jerseys Finley NSW. Sixty people attended the awards dinner night at Shepparton RSL club along with representatives from our valued sponsors including Genetics Australia, Crazy Cow in print ant Fonterra Australia.

Janette said the quality of the cattle was outstanding with many cows scoring very high but still missing out on a top ten placing.

The Tuhan family from Riversleigh Illawarras had a red hot competition winning three of the six classes and going on to win champion cow with their three year old entry Riversleigh Prince Tulip 12. It is worth noting also that her ET sister also placed fifth in the same class. Reserve was Three Creeks Honeymoon 3, with the Tuhan families winning two year old Riversleigh Zeus Stella 20 winning honourable mention cow.
