Speaking to Donegal Daily, Sarah Miller Arthur says: “The heifer was one of the best we have had and she was exactly what the judges were looking for which made her so special, she also has great breeding potential to produce super show calves in the future.”Joshua Miller and Sarah Miller Arthur showing the heifer with Judges Alan Lecky and Gerry Law.
