THE evolution of Brown Swiss in Australia was reflected in the show ring, according to the breed's International Dairy Week judge.
Dennis Mashek from the US said all animals were great quality with "tremendous frames, great-quality udders and correct feet and legs".
"Let's just say the quality is what I expected," he said.
"I knew there was good quality down here, but it is getting better and better - there are a lot of high-quality heifers out there.
"The heifers were more balanced then some of the cows today - deeper into the class."
Mr Mashek said grand champion Brown Swiss exhibit Benleigh Cartoon Sasha 2, which has had six calves, "carries herself so well (for her age)".
The cow's owners, the Wakes of Singleton in NSW, had plenty to smile about last Tuesday.
They bought 11 head to the show and took home reserve junior champion with Benleigh Denver Ladder, intermediate champion with Benleigh Pilot Greedel, champion cow and best udder.
This year's overall champion is no stranger to the big stage at Tatura but is proof third time can be lucky.
She won an honourable mention in 2008 and was reserve champion in 2009 before winning this year.
This IDW champion cow award was the fourth for Benleigh Brown Swiss, with three different cows.
- Tandara Brown Swiss was premier breeder and exhibitor.
- Junior champion heifer - T, K, K & R Cochrane, Kevindale Zeus Rosina
- Reserve intermediate champion - Tandara, Tandara Etvel Heidi 217
- Reserve champion cow -AH & JA Van Rijthoven, Grasslands Dynasty Holly.
