Whispering calves

We photographed these six week old Murray Greys pillow-talking at the annual Scottsdale Show last Friday, in 29 degrees Celsius heat! So, what makes a champion breed? While watching the judging for the Belted Galloway cows and their calves, it was interesting to hear the New Zealand judge speak about valuing the ability of the cow to produce rather than just how the beasts scrubbed up on the day. Just a bit harsh, we thought. What's a Show for if not a bit of showing off?
