Dairy cow championship returns to Louisville

The largest exhibition of registered Jersey cattle in the world, the three shows of the All American will be held Nov. 4-6 in conjunction with the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville.

Dean Dohle, Halfway, Mo., will judge the All American Jersey Show on Monday, Nov. 6. This will be his second appearance as a judge for an All American show, having placed the National Jersey Jug Futurity in 2012.

Dohle judged the Jersey shows at the Ohio and Kentucky state fairs and the New York Spring Carousel in 2016, as well as the national Brown Swiss Show of Mexico in 2015. His consultant will be Paul Trapp, Taylor, Wis.

Keith Topp, Botkins, Ohio, will place the 64th National Jersey Jug Futurity on Nov. 5. Highlights of his long career as a dairy cattle judge include the state fairs in Wisconsin, Indiana, Minnesota and New York, plus Eastern State Exposition and the Fort Worth Stock Show.

Topp also will be judge for the 2017 International Brown Swiss Show at World Dairy Expo. His consultant will be Joe Nash, Lyndonville, N.Y.

The National Jersey Jug Futurity is the oldest and richest class for dairy cattle in the world. A total of 293 cows currently are eligible for the 2017 show, which is expected to offer $9,000 in premiums.

Judge for the All American Junior Jersey Show on Saturday, Nov. 4 will be Kevin Lutz, Lincolnton, N.C. He has judged all of the shows that make up the All American schedule: the open show twice, in 2012 and 2003; the National Jersey Jug Futurity in 1999; and the junior show in 1998.

Lutz judged the 2011 Royal Melbourne Show in Australia, as well as many state fairs across the United States over the years. Brady Core, Salvisa, will be the consultant.

The first and second place winners in each class of these shows will become the 2017 All American and Reserve All American honorees of the American Jersey Cattle Association.
