protein production winner.
'Oeh-My Atwood Enso,' owned by Chase and Willow Oehmichen of Abbotsford, was the second place entry. She was shown by Chad Ryan of Fond du Lac, who earned a check for $750. The cow was also named the top milk production winner.
And third place honors at the show went to 'Miss Summer Song-ET,' owned by Dawson and Kylie Nickels of Watertown and shown by Dawson Nickels. They received $500.
The Wisconsin Holstein Futurity is a non-traditional cattle show, where the exhibitors enter their animals three years prior to the show in hopes of raising a high-quality show cow. It is a prestigious show where only the best in Registered Holsteins compete.
John Erbsen of Lanark, Ill. served as the official judge.
