Female Benscroft Queenie
Owner: PC&LM Gardner, Benscroft, 2547 Murchison HWY, Henrietta TAS
Comments: stands well on her feet good top line and neck extension
Female Eve’s Hill Quilly
Owner: Sam & Elizabeth Hodder, Barrington Tas
Comments: 9 months younger, appears to have stronger muscle development, stands well, good neck extension.
A really difficult pair of females to separate.
As I was going through the photos this female, I am placing first caught my eye straight away she is displaying good muscle development for her age and stands well on her feet.
Therefore, First, place goes to the Hodder entry. The Benscroft entry second. Both entries are excellent examples of what breeders should be aiming for in their young stock to further develop their herds.

Exhibitor: A Livermore Winswood Miniature Herefords 1 Pogues Rd Woodside North 3874
Comments: a cow that appears to have extreme length, producing enough milk, however may be have a very high condition score witch may be a negative trait by putting greater effort in her own maintenance and not in the calf’s growth, may have weakness in feet
A very good class of cows which was extremely difficult to make comment on. We have exhibitor who is showing a dry cow one with a newborn and three cows with calves at foot.
1st I have placed the Benscroft cow in 1st. She is displaying the ability to be a good milk producer which is reflected in her calf. This cow would be a welcome addition to any herd.
2nd I place the Sandrain cow 2nd. I really like this cow as she displays softness throughout. While lighter in body condition she has proven milking ability which is displayed in her calf.
3rd I place the Davey entry, Shady Creek Fina 3rd. Even though she is a fresh cow. She has a strong udder that will be able to hold lots of milk when she comes on. For me she has the makings of a being a excellent matron and is displaying great length. I would like, to see her calf at a similar age of the entries above.
