Undera’s Jasmine Cordy is the proud owner of the Interbreed Champion Senior Cow at this year’s Shepparton Agricultural Show.
Ms Cordy’s red and white Holstein, Lindon Artie Fire Kite, took out the major prize as well as the Holstein Senior Champion Cow and Best Udder in the Holstein class, backing up her Intermediate Champion success of last year.
‘‘It’s different but good (to win). She’s come a long way,’’ Ms Cordy said. ‘‘It shows that hard work pays off.’’
Ms Cordy said this was just the start of bigger things to come for the four-year-old.
‘‘She’s got potential, she always has and she is starting to come into her own. I expect good things from her.’’
Ms Cordy said she had started preparing her for the show just before Lindon Artie Fire Kite calved eights week ago and that plenty of work went into getting her ready.
‘‘A lot of feed, a lot of time and knowing the cow and knowing her likes and dislikes (are all part of it),’’ she said.
Ms Cordy said she was looking forward to the rest of the show season.
‘‘She (the cow) might go to Kyabram and probably to Echuca and we will see how she goes after that.’’
