Holsteins of both colors swept this year’s World Dairy Expo Supreme ceremony.

The busy week of World Dairy Expo’s cattle shows came to a crescendo Saturday afternoon with the selection four Supreme Champions. In one streamlined ceremony this year, the Junior Champion and Grand Champion of both the Junior and Open Shows from all seven breeds paraded under the spotlight and lined up to hear the heavily anticipated results.

The week’s most recent Grand Champion earned the title of Supreme Champion of the 2021 World Dairy Expo. She was the winning six-year-old and older and Senior Champion Holstein, Erbacres Snapple Shakira-ET, owned by Ferme Jacobs, Ty-D Holsteins, Theraulaz, Ferme Antelimarck, and Jacobs of Cap-Sante, Quebec. A cash award, banners, an embroidered sash, a director’s chair, and a supreme blanket were presented thanks to support from many generous sponsors.

Reserve Supreme Champion went to the Grand Champion Brown Swiss, Cutting Edge Thunder Faye, exhibited by Ken Main and Kenny Jo Manion of Copake, N.Y.

The three other Supreme titles all went to the Red and White contenders, including Dorloy-K Guinness-Red-ET, the calf that captured Supreme Champion Heifer of both the Open and Junior Shows. She was the winning winter calf of the Red and White Show for Kenlee Phillips of Lingleville, Texas.
