A 21-month-old heifer from Leongatha debuted with a splash at the Melbourne Royal Show, winning supreme exhibit in the Galloway family feature show.
Ashleigh Park’s Ashleigh Chantal snared the top crown from a line-up of 50 Belted Galloways and went on to beat the best exhibits in the Galoways and Miniature Galloways.
US judge Keith Jones was impressed by the heifer’s femininity, describing her as “beautiful to look at” and making special note of her smooth make-up and graceful movement around the ring.
Chantal knocked over stablemate Ashleigh Daniella – a half-sister on the sire’s side - for the female crown before toppling grand champion bull Apriash Delaware exhibited by the Apriash stud at Barjarg.
