The 131st Berry Show which got underway on Friday attracted a good number of entries in the dairy cattle section.
Although number of entries might have been down on previous years the quality was certainly high, making for at times a challenging job for the judges, especially in the hotly contested interbreed champion sections.
The weather also did its bit and came to the party, with overcast conditions and temperatures in the low 20s certainly making it more comfortable for exhibitors, stock and spectators compared to the nearly 40 degree heat of the day before.
Overall supreme champion cow, taking out the FA McIntosh Memorial Trophy, was the Walsh and Duncan Holstein entry of Juleanwes Windy Dita shown by Justin Walsh.
Supreme intermediate champion cow was Holstein entry of Jim and Karen Strong of Strongbark Last Candy, shown by Mick Strong.
Paul and Vicki Timbs claimed the supreme junior champion with their Ayrshire entry Mayfield Farms Viking Vienna.
And it wasn’t just the adults hitting the ring with next generation of show stars strutting their stuff with good entries in the dairy youth and the junior paraders’ sections.
And not to be upstaged by her father, Ella Walsh showed anything her father Justin can do she can match, winning her age group of the junior parader’s section just as her father claimed the supreme champion cow title.
