THE youngest female exhibit to enter the ring was sashed supreme in the Highland judging this year.

Emma Rose of Amrabull Park was exhibited by Amrabull Park principal Scott Carter, Nuriootpa, who also took out the top Highland acclaim last year.

The 15-month-old heifer was by Black Watch Emmet 3863US, and out of Tarraleah of Amrabull Park 74.

Vic judge Ryan Bajada, Elders, said the junior female - which was sashed grand champion ahead of stable mate and senior champion Eevie Grace of Amrabull Park - had the extra style he was looking for.

"It's got length of body, depth of rib and structural soundness ... that extra strength of spine, that extra style and femininity is what got this heifer on top," he said.

Eevie Grace of Amrabull Park was also exhibited by Mr Carter, who operates the stud with partner Luke Godly and mum Leanne Carter.

The judge commended Eevie Grace, a rising two-year-old, for its length of body, structural soundness and depth of side.

Eevie Grace was sired by Caleb of Amrabull Park - which was grand champion bull at Adelaide and supreme exhibit at the Australian Highland Cattle Society's Annual National Show in Junee, NSW, in 2018.

Erica Smith, Glentstrae stud, was the owner of junior champion bull Gryphon of Glenstrae - a 210-kilogram nine-month-old bull sired by Sky High Cornerstone with an eye muscle area of 60 square centimetres.
