Years showing at fair: Seven. This was the best she’s ever done, and she was very happy with the results, she said.

Cow’s name: Rachel

Advice to other kids: Work with the animals before the show. When animals behave better, they look better to the judge, Broege said.

What the judge liked: Judge Mark Brown said the cow’s udder was outstanding.

“She has a super level-four udder, and the height and weight of the back udder was good, too.”

He was also impressed with the long line of the cow’s back.
