The Storm family, Stormley Red Polls, Barham, NSW, won supreme exhibit of the breed with a first-calf heifer, which is the daughter of the cow that won the prize for the past two years.
This year’s winner Stormley Princess was born in late January 2015 and had a heifer calf at-foot. She was by Stormley Ned-Kelly and out of Stormley Lara.
Judge Dianna Wood said she was a “beautiful, young, feminine female”.
“I just think she’s the complete package with her lovely heifer calf that she’s got behind her, it’s great to see her doing such a fantastic job,” she said, adding the heifer had really good udder development.
Grand champion bull was awarded to two year-old Redward Forest exhibited by Gay Ward, Redward, Arthurs Creek. He was sired by Red Cactus Jethro.
Ms Wood said he was a fantastic young sire that displayed a lot of muscularity and depth of body.
Other broad ribbon winners in the breed included Stormely stud’s Stormley Queen-Bee, another daughter of Stormley Ned-Kelly, that won junior champion heifer.
Redward stud also had the junior champion bull – Redward Throw Down.
