Borderway Dairy Expo was back with a bang this year live streaming the event globally, and what a year it was for Mark and Sue Nutsford, and daughter, Jodie from Cheshire securing both the champion and reserve honours.
Champion this year was tapped out as the Red and White section winner, the second calver, Riverdane Miss Awesome Strawberry Red. Having previously bagged this award this was the first time the family have taken the inter-breed title with the Red and Whites. Having last calved in December she is classified VG87 and is already giving 50kg. This home-bred cow is sired by Luck-E Absolute Awesome Red, and out of Riverdane Colt Strawberry, which stood first in the production class here today.
The blue and white sash was awarded to the same home, this time in the form of the second calver Holstein, Riverdane Doorman Elke. She last calved 100 days ago now giving 50kg and is classified VG88. Backed by the best of genetics she is out of the well known European show cow, Emeraude, which has stood national Dutch and French champion, whilst being sired by Val-Bisson Doorman.
