Official Judge: Claire Swale
Claire Swale of the U.K. will judge the Showmanship division of the Classic with Steve Fraser from Fergus, Ontario, taking on the role of Associate Judge. Claire Swale returns to the Semex “Ring of Excellence” as the Lead Showmanship Judge for the 39th Anniversary Show of the TD Canadian 4-H Dairy Classic. “From Lancashire in England, Claire Swale has been judging Showmanship competitions for over 20 years, officiating in Canada, England, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, and Switzerland. In 2018 Claire will be judging showmanship at the New Zealand Dairy Event. Married to Dave, with two children, Jack (18) and Harvey (17), Claire owns 40 head of registered Holsteins under her own Heavenly prefix. These operate alongside the family run Joylan Farms, which farms over 800 acres, milks 500 cows, and retails all their own milk independently. Claire is a familiar sight in and around the show ring, whether it be showing or judging or as a valued part of the Cowsmopolitan team providing global show coverage. Last year she travelled to 13 countries, making over 90 flights, doing this. Involved in the pedigree business since an early age, Claire considers herself extremely fortunate to have a career in an industry she loves, working with great cows and great people. Passionate about the Youth of our industry, Claire is excited to be working with youth and is enthusiastically looking forward to judging Showmanship at this year’s TD Canadian 4-H Dairy Classic.
