The International Junior Holstein Show was held on Tuesday, September 28 with Adam Liddle of Argyle, NY, serving as judge of the 212 entries. For many of the young Holstein exhibitors, this show is the pinnacle of their year. Their animals may have been shown all spring and summer, and will conclude this week. For others, this may be "the" only show at which they will exhibit in 2010.

The Grand Champion of the International Junior Holstein Show was Longsdon Durham Cher. This is the second time Cher has been named Grand Champion at this junior show. She is owned by two young ladies for Eminence, Kentucky, Katie Gibson and Michaela Sanders. Shane Noldolf was excited to be named Reserve Grand Champion.
