Two prominent dairy breeds, Holstein, and Jersey*, are on exhibit during the Open Dairy Show by dairy exhibitors from across Texas. Cattle exhibited range in age from calves to cows that are already in production. Judges will focus primarily on udder quality and structural correctness along with other important physical traits.
