Judge and Jersey Australia President Peter Ness has completed the judging of the 2015 Rising Star Award. “It was great to be asked to over judge this competition and the quality of all finalists was impressive – congratulations to all exhibitors in this national class”.
1st Place: Coleshill Leaders Noelene – Owned by Daryl Cole and qualified at Wynyard Show Tasmania.
I’ve gone with Noelene in first place due to her impressive angle and openess of rib. Its this well sprung rib that gives her an eye catching appearance of capacity.
2nd Place: Homelands Reagans Silvermine – Owned by Nikki & Jackie Davies and qualified at Adelaide Show led by Jackie Davies
Has an advantage over 3rd due to her length from shoulder to hip, which continues to pin and is evident throughout the body of this stylish heifer.
3rd Place: Attaview Brax Inch‐ET Owned by Attaview Jerseys and qualified at Warragul Fair led by Ellie Hourigan
Obviously a quality heifer that was not quite as long as the heifer in second place but a worthy finalist.
