TRAVIS Dean's Holstein cow made history yesterday when it took out the Champion Holstein Cow of the Heritage Toowoomba Royal Show.
"Leader Mrsam Shania was the third cow from the same paternal line to be named a champion for Oakey's Leader Holsteins, a feat never achieved before at the Toowoomba show," Travis said.
"Her dam (mother) was champion in 2012 and her grand dam was champion in 2008.
"We've been coming here every year since 1996 and her great-great-grand dam won the Champion Holstein Cow that year.
"We've created history today. I'm really thrilled."
It is the 18th year the stud has shown in Toowoomba and it was a good one at that.
It also won the Reserve Junior Champion while Travis' daughter Charli took out first place in the paraders' competition for under 12s on Thursday.
