North-Effect Wa Tatas-Red has been named the best of the best at the 55th World Dairy Expo held in Madison, Wisconsin, on October 2-7. World Dairy Expo is the premier exhibition for dairy cattle exhibitors and enthusiasts. This year’s event was the largest ever, with a record number 2,663 animals housed and 54,525 attendees from 86 countries. Tatas was the winning Summer Yearling and Junior Champion in the International Red and White Show. She then went up against other breed champions in the prestigious Supreme Champion Pageant that concludes the weeklong event. While the overall winner hailed from Canada, Tatas reigns as Reserve Supreme and best in the United States.
Tatas is owned by Chris and Jen Hill of Thurmont and Tim and Sharyn Abbott of Richford, Vermont. She is housed at Glad-Ray Farm in Emmitsburg, owned by Jen’s parents, James and Sharon Keilholtz.
