Sage tastes Dairy Week success

Quality stock: Sage Deenen of Leongatha with Carisma Jacot Paradise, which won her class in the youth show at International Dairy Week at Tatura. The class was heifer born September 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018.

A LEONGATHA girl has succeeded at International Dairy Week at Tatura.

Sage Deenen won four first place ribbons, with two in the youth show and two in the Jersey show. These included heifer born September 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018, with Carisma Jacot Paradise and Jersey Regal Park Joels Laramie, which won class 10.

She was delighted with her results.

“I love the relationships between myself and my calf, and the friends that you make at cattle shows,” she said.

“I also like the enjoying of showing and winning after all the hard work I put in.”

Sage said the keys to her success are training her calves well, practising most days, improving her handling skills and selecting a good calf.

“I have spent my whole life on farms with many animals and have been showing calves since I was four years old,” she said.

“I have always loved the animals and so has my mum Maree and grandparents.”
