Re: What is the best show-cow you ever saw?


Saragossa Jane was the best local cow I have ever seen. A previous National Champion, she is the current Reserve, I stand under correction but I think she is at least ten years old. A My Kinda Selector out of a Iona Farm Camaro - medium stature, massive capacity, but all silk, with a yeah long neck and an awesome udder.

I have only watched the Holstein judging at WDE once, it was the year Sterling Silver won. We were awed by Blackrose but she couldn't walk. My personal favourite was Maple Flat Ares Rosie who got High Honorable Mention. Watched the whole thing from start to finish, actually nodded off a couple of times I'm afraid to say.

Two of my all time favourite pictured cows are Roxy (no brainer) and Kanza Matt Tippy (I used to love em tall and sharp and wringing wet!)

this topics been untouched for a few years, with some great cows from the last few years!

james rose is simply awesome, she was a nice cow in 06 then in 08 and 09 she developed into one of the greats!

Charity was so far ahead of the best of the rest in her generation that she is impossible to go past.

James Rose is a great cow, but can and has been beaten, and even when she wins there is some debate as to other cows that could have won.

When Charity appeared, there was never any debate.

Medway Supreme Maude is the best cow I have seen in the UK, just awesome year after year.

And Snickerdoodle is the best Coloured cow that I have seen.

In my opinion, for history of the Holstein breed - for me it has to go to Charity. But recently, Rose is the leader in my mind. Rose has the best udder I think I have ever seen. For Swiss, easily Snickerdoodle. And Jersey, I think easily Veronica.

Elmar Leader Jessica is one of my favourites, she was a local cow for me so got to see her many times when she was at her best.
