The Judge Mr Gary Wilkinson, Columbian Poll Herefords, Binnaway had a great line of classes to work through and select his champions.

For the rst time in the modern format of the combined Nationals a female was awarded Supreme Exhibit.
Greg and Jenny Frizells Wake eld Amaze 38 (P) took the top award after being awarded Senior and Grand champion female. This female is sired by Advance Domino who descends from LT Wyoming Wind lines over a french in uenced dam line. The judge commented “this supreme cow is just magni cent.
There would be plenty of people from whatever breed they are in, happy to have her in their paddock. She is big and long with tremendous volume great spine and thickness all the way through. She retains beautiful femininity traits such as a lovely shoulder set, neck extension, ne teats and square udder. To complete the package she has an outstanding heifer calf at foot”.
Reserve senior champion was Myona Ginghi K1 (P) sired by CSS Sir Gridmaker 2W exhibited by Beverley Hogland and Stephen Martin.
Junior champion female was Caloona Park Posie (P) exhibited by Steve and Louie Franco. This heifer was sired by Airlie Kit K127E (P) who also sired the winner of the second heifer class, Caloona Park Peaches. DSK came second in both these classes with daughters of Temana Golden Logie G66E (P). DSK TGL Quoin P70E (P) was awarded reserve junior champion heifer.

Senior and Grand Champion bull was DSK Kind-A-Neat N46E sired by ANC Kind (P). The judge commented on this bull “the champion has a moderate frame, is a structurally very correct bull with muscle and weight.
He has great length and smoothness up through the front end. The one thing that stood out to me is that you don’t have to have the biggest bull to be the heaviest if the package is right. Moderate frame cattle with doing ability are economic and productive.” DSK also showed the Reserve senior champion bull with Temana Golden Logie son, DSK TGL Nockup N55E (P).
Junior Champion Bull was Kenmere Pompeii (P) sired by Kenmere Herichio and exhibited by Kenmere Charolais. DSK exhibited the Reserve Junior Champion bull with their CML Distinction 318A sired bull, DSK CMLD Pro t P11E (P).
