After taking out the Supreme Champion Interbreed Heifer title at the 2018 Royal Melbourne Show, KO Dream N43, exhibited by the KO Angus Stud, Kangaloon New South Wales, has gone one better in 2019 to be crowned the Supreme Interbreed Exhibit of the Royal Melbourne Show. 

This title capped off a successful day for the Angus exhibits competing in the interbreed judging under the watchful eye of judges, Donna Robson, Jasmine Green and Nicole Nicholls. 

KO Angus also exhibited the Supreme Champion Interbreed Heifer for the second year in a row with KO Vicky P66, claiming the honors in 2019.

Representing the judging panel, Mrs Robson commended this heifer for being ‘An absolute standout. She has a lot of width and dimension and a lot of power, but still maintains refinement through the front end.’

Prior to winning the Supreme title, KO Dream N43 won the Supreme Champion Interbreed Cow award and was described by Mrs Robson as a cow that is, ‘Structurally sound with capacity.’

In the interbreed bull judging, Adameluca Pharaoh P3 exhibited by Adameluca Angus, Kyneton South Victoria, won Reserve Champion Junior Interbreed Bull.

In her comments Mrs Green saw this young sire as, ‘A really complete package. He is a very functional bull that ticks all the boxes 

Hollywood Longmire N12 exhibited by Hollywood Angus, Peak Hill New South Wales was awarded the Reserve Senior Interbreed Bull, with Mrs Nicholls highlighting that he, ‘Is a great example of the Angus breed. He has adequate muscling and handles feet and legs really well and has a really nice sirey outlook’. 

To close out the Interbreed judging, the Supreme Interbreed winner was selected with Mrs Robson again representing the judging panel and describing KO Dream N43 as, A really outstanding young cow doing an exceptional job on her first calf.’
