Michael had the champion Illawarra at the Royal Melbourne show and will probably show it again at the Shepparton Show.

Michael Tuhan of Tatura has entered Illawarra cow Riversleigh Tulip 10th, bred by the Tuhan family, in this year’s Shepparton Show.

Tulip 10th was champion Illawarra cow at Royal Melbourne Dairy Show and has previously been named reserve champion at Shepparton Show.

Michael’s father Doug said they had flushed 28 embryos from Tulip 10th and had four heifer calves on the ground.

The two-day Shepparton Show will open on Friday morning with entertainment including a wildlife show, a family circus, a roving magician and displays in the art and craft pavilion.

The all-breeds dairy youth show will be held in the evening, starting at 5pm, and Whip Industries will give a minibike demonstration from 6pm.

On Saturday cattle judging will start at 9am, dog judging will start at 10am and the woodchop events will start at the same time. Dozens of cats will be on show for morning judging.

Fireworks are scheduled for 8.45pm on Saturday.
