An 11-month-old Jersey heifer calf was awarded supreme champion at the 19th Multi-Breed Dairy Calf Show, held at Dungannon, Co. Tyrone.

The Sunset Canyon Andreas-sired heifer Treasure Andreas Fernleaf ET took the interbreed title after competing against her Holstein and Ayrshire counterparts to win the Blondin Sires-sponsored interbreed championship, and the Clandeboye Cup.

The stylish heifer, with one of the hottest pedigrees in Europe, was the winner of the Jersey championship and supreme interbreed award.

She was exhibited by the Sizzler Syndicate, – Rory Timlin, Andrew Kennedy, David Simpson and Mark Henry.

The 11-month-old caught the eye of judge Sam Wake of the Blydale Herd, North Hants, to secure a red rosette in the breed’s strongest class of the day.

Commenting on his supreme champion selection Wake said: “This is a beautifully balanced and well-blended heifer, with a great frame and openness of rib. She simply oozes style and ring presence, and could compete on the world stage.”

Supreme Champion

Sired by Sunset Canyon Andreas, this much-admired heifer is bred from Lightning Ridge Tequila Fernleaf VG87 2yr.

She was purchased by the Sizzler Syndicate in April last year, as a first-choice heifer at the Global Connections online auction conducted by Harrison and Hetherington, Carlisle. 

Consigned by D and L Millar, Lockerbie, this heifer was one of the first daughters of Lightning Ridge Tequila Fernleaf to sell at auction in Europe.

Lightning Ridge Tequila Fernleaf is backed by eight generations of dams carrying the Bushlea prefix.

She is the only cow from outside North America to have been shown at World Dairy Expo (2018) – being exported from Australia to compete at the event.

Treasure Andreas Fernleaf ET also recently took home the title of junior champion at UK Dairy Expo in March.
