There have been 8 Guernsey cows to win Interbreed Supreme Championships in relatively modern times (since 1980) , they become known by just their names and so I am lucky that even now 30 years after the event people still recall “Clarissa” she was Supreme at Edenbridge and the Dairy Event in 1982, Supreme at the South West Dairy Show and South East Dairy Fair in 2003 and Supreme and Champion of Champions at the South West Dairy Show in 2004.
“Jacquetta” was the next great cow to emerge for Len &Margaret George in West Wales and she was Supreme at United Counties and Pembroke Shows.
“Tessa” was Supreme at the Newbury Show for the Durbin’s and Kim Sales in the 80’s
“Stella ” was Supreme at Frome in 1997 for the Durbins.
Slindon Venus 42 was Supreme at the North Somerset also for the Durbins
“Daphne” was Supreme at the Dairy Show and South West Dairy Show in 2002 , beating the Ex97 Maude there but standing Reserve Supreme at the Welsh Dairy Show when trying for the elusive Triple Crown for Andrew Hope and the late John Posnett
“Duchess ” was Supreme at the Bath & West in 2009 at the only show she could attend because of Blue Tongue restrictions for John Sansom and Ian Crouch.
Gabrielle was Supreme at Stithians in 2010 and finished as Hon Mention in the Supreme at the South West Dairy Show in 2010 and 2011 and now has the Royal Cornwall title for the Warren family.
Who will be next?
