2016 Southwest National Junior Show
The Southwest National Junior Show was held Saturday, October 22, in conjunction with the Heart of America Expo in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Judge Angelo Pozatti of Italy was tasked with placing 57 head of junior-exhibited Brown Swiss.
For his Junior Champion, Judge Pozatti chose Bfurr Winmore Eula Mae, who topped the incredibly deep Fall Calf class in both open and junior shows. Eula Mae, exhibited by Breanna Furr of Crescent, Oklahoma, is a Top Acres Winmore ET out of a Groves View Supreme TNT daughter. Reserve Junior Champion of the Junior Show was also a class winner in both open and junior contests, Sun-Made Elite Neith ET, the prevailing Winter Calf for Leif Thompson of Viroqua, Wisconsin. Neith is continuing her winning streak after placing third and first junior at the International Show this year. She is a Supreme out of Jo-Dee Wonderment Nuclear ET ‘2E92,’ a two-time All-American Nominee with records to 32,000M. The second dam is Valligrove Jetway Nora ‘2E93,’ two-time All-American.
Grimm Chilli Pep Tiara came out as the top young cow of the show for owner Brett Chapman of Perkins, Oklahoma, placing first junior in the Senior Two-Year-Old class and achieving the Intermediate Champion title. Tiara, a Chilli Pepper daughter, has never placed out of the top three at the Southwest National, coming every year so far. Her dam is an Agenda, and then a ‘VG86’ Collection. Reserve Intermediate Champion went to Beu Dell Precious Dee ‘VG87,’ shown by Trysten Chwala of Ft Atkinson, Wisconsin. Dee is out of a ‘VG86’ Rocket.
The Groves siblings of Billings, Missouri, triumphed over the competition, garnering Senior and Grand Champion titles. Groves-Sun Supreme Taya ET, the winning Five-Year-Old, was Senior and Grand Champion for Grant Groves. Taya is an ‘EX91’ Supreme out of a ‘2E92’ Ensign, then Timberline Jetway Toni (M*) ‘3E94,’ making her a maternal sister to the Reserve Intermediate Champion of this year’s open show. Reserve Senior and Grand to Taya was herdmate Groves View PB Treasure for Bailey Groves. Treasure, the winning Four-Year-Old, is an ‘EX92’ Party Boy who was previously the Reserve Grand Champion at the Missouri State Fair in 2014. Her dam is a ‘2E93’ Snickpack who was Total Performance Cow at the Southwest National in 2015.
Winning the title of Best Bred and Owned was the champion cow, Groves-Sun Supreme Taya ET. The home team of Oklahoma came away with the Junior State Herd banner.
