Three Bred & Owned Ohio Cows Senior Champions
An unusual occurrence took place during the International Brown Swiss Show. Judge Keith Topp of Ohio, and his Associate Judge, Dean Dohle of Missouri, had three cows pulled to center ring for selection of the Senior Champion of the International Brown Swiss Show. That in of itself is not unusual, but the three cows themselves – that’s another story. All three cows hail from the Buckeye state of Ohio and are also bred and owned by their Ohio exhibitors.
The first-place Five-Year-Old and tapped by Topp for Reserve Senior Champion and later, Honorable Mention Grand was R N R Lebron Emily, bred and owned by the Michalovich family of Lakeville, Ohio. An Excellent daughter of Lebron, she was the Reserve All-American Four-Year-Old in 2016. She made over 21,000M as a three-year-old. She is backed by two Very Good dams.
Topping the Aged Cow class was Kar-Linn Wondrmnt Reese ET, a 91-point Wonderment daughter bred and owned by Jeff Brown and Kar-Linn Swiss of Jackson Center, Ohio. Reese was ultimately tapped for Honorable Mention Senior Champion. She was the All-American Four-Year-Old in 2015 and Grand Champion of the Eastern National that same year. She has production records to 26,080M 1,257F 908P. Her dam is also a 91-point All-American winner sired by Supreme. The granddam is an Excellent Banker.
Taking home top honors and a first for her breeder and owner, Wayne Sliker, of St. Paris, Ohio, was Top Acres Supreme Wizard. The first-place Component Merit cow is scored ‘2E95’ and has records to 34,914M 1,840F 1,163P. She was the 2013 All-American Senior Three-Year-Old, 2015 Res. All-American Five-Year-Old, Res. All-American Aged Cow in 2016 and a member of the All-American Produce of Dam in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. She is a granddaughter of Top Acres EJ Whizzbang ‘5E93.’ Wizard is sired by Supreme and out of the All-American nominee, ‘2E93’ Andre Whisper.
