The People’s Choice Cow Award goes to Flambeau Manor RO Lauren-ET, owned by Gary Van Doorn of Tony, Wisconsin.
Online All-American Judging Contest
Ties were determined by the contestant with the most points in the classes that were closest in the official judges’ voting. This year’s two closest classes were Winter Calves and Fall Yearlings. The tie for first was determined by the Fall Yearlings. The tie for third was so heated, it came down to the fifth-closest class, the Fall Calves! The total scores are out of 150. This year’s winner was a repeat from last year! Congrats to the Adult Division winners!
