Java is quickly filling the shoes of her dam, Carmel, when it comes to being in the show ring. In 2017, Java entered the show ring after a late July freshening, going 2nd at her first show (to a half-sister). After a successful linear appraisal where she earned a final score of 89 EVEV at only a few weeks fresh, Java completed her championship at the 2017 Dutchess County Fair. She also went Best of Breed and Best Udder of Breed as well as being a critical part of our group classes including 1st place Get of Sire and 1St Place Dairy Herd.
With limited showing in 2016 due to Nationals, Java still had a great year! At the 2016 ADGA Nationals, she placed 15th in a very large class of 4 year old does. After Nationals, Java earned her restricted leg at the 2016 Dutchess County Youth Show by going Grand Champion and Best in Show. She then went on be Reserve Grand Champion at the Progressive Midsummer Madness Show and also at the 2016 Dutchess County Fair (for the second year in a row) behind her herdmate, Double Shot. To finish the show season, Java was the Grand Champion, Best of Breed and Best Udder at the 2016 Big E! Java is maturing nicely, and this year really developed the body capacity she needed to be competitive in the champion line up. If she is anything like her dam, her best is yet to come too!
At the 2015 INBA District 2 Specialty, Java was 1st place three-year-old and Best Udder of Breed. She finished the 2015 season going Reserve Grand Champion at the Dutchess County Fair.
