VICTORIAN Jersey entries were unstoppable at Sydney Royal, with all three major champion sashes being awarded to interstate entries.

Western Australia judge Lachlan Fry of Brunswick, WA cast his eye over the 55 quality in the Jersey breed for 2021, but it was one senior female, Windy Ways Galaxies Dawn 7, that Mr Fry couldn't stop raving about.

Exhibited by Windy Ways Jerseys and Cherrylock Cattle Co, Tallygaroopna, Vic, the six-year-old female has an extensive show history and to date has not been beaten.

She received senior champion Jersey female and best senior udder.

"I love the beautiful openness of this female," Mr Fry said. "She is just so correct, and it is that depth and spring of rib and awesome mammary system, with amazing rear udder attachment that is high and wide that had her winning here."

Mr Gavenlock said she has one of the deeper cow family's in the country in her pedigree, and she is breeding well with the studs currently IVF flushing her.

"Brian Leslie traced her back to 1923, originally being back to New Zealand but been in Australia for 60 years or so," he said.

"We are actually taking some samples to potentially clone her one day too, we haven't gone done the process yet but we at least have the samples."

Four credible senior Jersey females featured in the championship lineup, a group of cows that Mr Fry said could stand up and compete anywhere around the country.

Reserve senior went to Brookbora PGRS Valentino Loves Lives exhibited by Cochrane, Allen and Bacon, Nowra, and senior honourable mention was presented to Hazel Vale Valentino Benita 2 exhibited by Patrick Buckley and Jason Hayes, Theresa Park.

A "hard to fault" sole entry from Lightning Ridge Jerseys, Sale, Vic took home junior champion female. Lightning Ridge MP VIP Feliz was balanced and stylish heifer, sired by River Valley Venus VIP out of MB Lucky Lady Feliz Navidad.

"You have to admire the length of body of this heifer, the openness, depth of rib and balance right the way through," Mr Fry said.

The Bacon family of Brookbora Jerseys, Tennysonvale, Vic exhibited the intermediate champion female Brookbora Valentino Sweet Elfa a daughter of All Lynns Louie Valentino out of Nyoweee Sweet Elfa 133, which was also best intermediate udder.

In judging the best udder class, Mr Fry said she is the most correct in her udder and shows texture, length of fore attachment, height and width of rear udder.

"She is a cow that displays a beautiful mammary system, she is dairy, clean boned and I think suit what we are looking for and trying to achieve in the breed," he said.

The Wilson family of Shirlinn Jerseys, Tamworth had a successful show, exhibiting four of the major awards.

Reserve junior went to Shirlinn Viral Evening, while Shirlinn Sky Dawn received junior honourable mention. Shirlinn Engineer Starfinch was reserve intermediate champion and Shirlinn Viral Zara was intermediate honourable mention.

The Jersey breed went on to win all sections of the interbreed dairy competition.
