Australia’s first 96 point cow

Recently Australia’s first 96 point cow was announced with Chris, Sue and Luke Russell’s Tallelms Meadow Nancy classified as Excellent 96 (EX-96-6E) at Neerim South in Gippsland, Victoria.

The Russell’s are no strangers to high classifications with 11 EX and 18 VG-89 cows in the 200 milking cow herd. Nancy, who is 14 years with 10 lactations currently has two Shottle heifer calves one of which is headed for the IDW sale in January next year.

Chris Russell said ”It’s a once in a lifetime occurrence. We’ve always known she’s a really good cow and she knows she good!”

Watch out for more on Nancy in the Dec/Jan Journal coming in the first week of December.
