    At the National Holstein Show in Bulle, Switzerland, two candidates from the mature cow class fought for the championship. The French-born Du Bon Vent Stormatic Atacama of Marc & Erhard Junker ultimately triumphed due to her extra quality in dairyness and rear udder. Reserve went to the mighty and balanced cow Ptit Coeur Iron Dirona of GS Alliance. Honorable Mention went to the stylish and youthful Lystel Bolton Lorana of Swisslor.In the Red Holstein Show, two young milking cows drew lots of attention; the refined and super-uddered Bopi Talent Lotanie of Oberson & Savary and the flawless and open-ribbed La Waebera Acme Sublime of Michel Clément. In the finale they finished in second and third respectively and only had to bow for the winner of the queen’s class: Pepita (photo). The reigning European Champion of Everdes Holsteins combined strength with capacity and lots of quality in her udder and legs. (
