Judge Johnson’s comments: Before we get any further in our junior champion selection today, let’s give our red & white exhibitors a round of applause. The spring calf class started out with a bang, and it hasn’t let up yet! I pulled out three heifers today, my spring calf, the summer yearling and the junior yearling, all who show tremendous depth. For my junior champion, I’m going with the junior yearling. To me, she shows so much more length, balance, style and a little more maturity today than my lovely spring calf. I also like the way she handles herself on her hind legs. For reserve, I am going with this beautiful spring calf over the summer yearling. She’s more balanced, nicer through the shoulder, a little deeper in that rear rib and little more wedgey over the top than our beautifully balanced summer yearling.
