Judge’s Comments:
“This has been an exception heifer show for this breed. I’ve pulled out 4 animals that are so correct in their make up, they are showing tremendous openness, spring & depth of rib that go on and make great cows. For me 2 heifers rise to the top and are the cream of the crop today and your Winter Yearling will be your Junior Champion, followed by the Junior Yearling for Reserve. This is extremely close, splitting hairs, but for me the Winter Yearling is just a little crisper and cleaner all the way through then the really well grown Junior Yearling. The Junior Yearling will go above the Winter Calf for Reserve on her overall maturity and today she’s maybe a smidge fuller in the crops. But these are 3 outstanding individuals and a tremendous pair on top.”

Judge’s Comments:
“Today this Junior 2 Year Old will be your Intermediate Champion. She is extremely well balanced and well grown with a tremendous mammary system. She will go over the Senior 2 today just showing me a little more size and scale throughout. The Senior 2 year old has an extremely well attached udder and that will carry her over the Junior 3 Year Old.”

Judge’s Comments:
“I love this 4 Year Old cow, she’s not the biggest cow in ring today but she has a superior mammary system and the fewest faults. Today she is just a little cleaner from end to end and showing a little more balance today then the Aged Cow who will be Reserve. The Age Cow will go over the 5 Year old for Reserve, she is stronger through the topline today, I prefer the way she carries her top.”

Judge’s Comments:
“This has been a very quality Brown Swiss show today. Thank you for allowing me to come and judge here today, I really appreciate it. There is no getting around your Senior Champion and she will win the 2012 Royal Brown Swiss show. She has a tremendous wide muzzle and width of chest and she has a super udder, the best mammary system of the show. The Aged Cow will be Reserve Grand today, but I will make my Intermediate Champion the Honorable Mention. The Aged Cow just has the advantage in maturity, she’s had more calves and still has a very sound mammary. I take nothing away from the Junior 2 Year old though, she has a very bright future. Congratulations.”
