“second place two year old appears to have the general appearance, dairy character, and length of body we expect in a herdsire and we’ll award the Reserve Champion to him. [The lack of contrast in the side view photo makes it hard to see detail, but the top view clarifies well enough to carry him over the 4 year old.”

second place buck is to be commended for his width and height of escutcheon and dairyness with his long lean neck, open ribbing and loose skin.”
