Meanwhile, the Red and White heifer took Supreme Junior Champion Heifer honors.

Delilah captured her second Supreme Champion title

The seven breed champions paraded under the spotlight in the coliseum for crowd watching to see who would be named Supreme Champion of the 2019 World Dairy Expo. A Supreme Junior Champion was also awarded to honor the best heifer of the breed shows.

Cash, banners, an embroidered sash, a director’s chair, and a supreme blanket were awarded to the Supreme Champion.

Taking the Supreme Champion Cow honors was the Brown Swiss – a repeat Supreme Champion winner from last year, Cutting Edge T Delilah. She is owned by Ken Main and Kenny Jo Manion, Copake, N.Y.

The Ayrshire, De La Plaine Bingo Stinger, was the Reserve Supreme Champion Cow for Blue Spruce Farm of Bridport, Vt.

The Red and White was the Supreme Champion Heifer, Milksource Thunder-Red-ET. That was the second Supreme Champion Heifer honor of the day for Molly Olstad and Tristan Ostrom, as they won the Supreme Champion of the Junior Shows at World Dairy Expo just minutes before the open show selection.
