Mellow classified 86pts as a heifer but has not been re-classified as yet, she has scored well in OFC, her dam Merry was much admired in OFC competitions and was once said to have the best foreudder of that particular Challenge. The Hi and the Rose each have topped the herd for production and each produced over 300kg with no bail feeding. They have been favourite cows through the whole line, being reliable producers and of excellent temperament. This line of cows goes back over 40 years on this farm.
