Riverside Jerseys were cream of the crop at International Dairy Week’s Jersey feature show.

Riverside Country Lollypop EX93 won Supreme Champion Jersey Exhibit, Senior Champion Jersey and Best Senior Jersey Udder.

She was Intermediate Jersey Champion and Best Intermediate Jersey Udder at last year’s event.

South African judge Johannes van Eeden said she had a nice udder and had more body and capacity than the other entrants.

‘‘She is a really nice cow,’’ Mr van Eeden said.

Riverside Colettes Covergirl EX91 was awarded Reserve Champion Senior Jersey.

Husband and wife Corey and Karin Couch, who run the Riverside Jerseys stud at Nirranda, near Warrnambool, were excited by their stud’s success.

The Couches milk about 200 cows.

Mr Couch said it was a huge honour to win the prizes and he and his family were proud.

Invergordon’s Phil Hentschke and Warren Schutz’s cow Homelands Sleeping Beauty got the honourable mention in the Senior Jersey Champion class.
