The International Milking Shorthorn Show was held today, Wednesday, September 29. The show began with the milking classes, the champions, and then followed by the heifer classes. Two well-known cows of the breed came ready for the challenge. Coming out on top were the two aged cows, Peri and Christina. Christina has been Reserve Grand Champion at Madison four different times, today it was Peri's day!

Ron Mosser of Geneva, Ind., served as judge and selected Tex-Star Othello Peri as Grand Champion. Peri is exhibited by Springville Farm & Fisher of New Enterprise, Penn. Lands-Brook Christina-Exp-ET again claimed Reserve Champion honors.
