    Supreme Champion presentations

    The seven breed champions paraded under the spotlight in the Coliseum filled with anxious guests waiting to see who would be named Supreme Champion of the Junior Shows at World Dairy Expo 2019. Additionally, a Supreme Junior Champion recognition was instituted last year to honor the best heifer of the youth breed shows. There were 772 animals exhibited by junior exhibitors this week in Madison, Wis.

    In addition to prize money, banners, sashes, and a director’s chair, the Supreme Champion exhibitor will get a 20-foot long cattle trailer to use for the upcoming year.

    Taking the Supreme Champion honors was the homebred Red and White, Mead-Manor Def Adeline-Red for Mike and Megan Moede, Algoma, Wis.
