Re: World Dairy Expo 2014


Oldest Atwoods are now 4 year olds,6 top 5 finishes in the first 5 cow classes is not too shabby.

Re:


Rae Lynn won't be coming back to the show ring as far as I know.

Hailey looked good; maybe the best she has but the top 3 in her class were all contenders to unseat her. Her rear udder; as impressive as it is, still doesn't look natural and if she wasn't bagged to the extreme I'd doubt she'd look as attractive. If you look at the side profile photos of her udder Hailey is starting to develop a slight reverse tilt and her foreudder looked a little less neat. Of course this is just being picky.

The Supreme Jersey was unreal. Perfection from nose to tail, stunning legs, strength of top, rump, mammary. I thought that the Karlie cow from Arethusa had at all but I am fairly sure if Karlie was there; this new Supreme champ would've taken her down.

Dundee Belinda, the 150K winner, really stuck out in the ring too. So much balance and correctness. I love the strength and width in her front end, her long body, rump and mammary system.

Re:


June could be a contender in the future for sure. While I like Chalou, her legs will never be quite good enough to get around Hailey.

The judge did phenomenal - I felt that he was judging for balance. I loved all the winners. Barbara, Katrishya, Hailey, Belinda - all balanced cows. Not big huge cows. Balanced cows with great mobility and amazing udders.

Paul Trapp is a thorough judge. Any cow walking those shavings at the show is phenomenal.

Re: World Dairy Expo 2014


Dad was at the show.

He really liked the Luck-E cow that was reserve grand in the red and whites.

In the black and whites he thought Hailey was winning pretty handy. He loved the reserve grand champion as well. As good a show as it was he thought those two were quite a bit ahead of the rest of the show.

Re:


I was surprised the Luck-E cow was not grand. She was spot on that day. The most balanced red and white on the shavings. Strong top, great rump, big/open framed, welded on udder, excellent feet and legs, not too frail or showy. A handy winner. She will be back next year and she will look better than ever

Re:


Well, that zero or hero philosophy got me 11th out of 7721 entries in the Bullvine Fantasy Exhibitor. Who knew you could just not pick in some categories to save money and spend more on others? That might be my strategy for the Royal.
