Dairy articalDairy articalOn the 17 April 2013 the 21st Annual Philadelphia dairy herd competition was held.

Eight of the top dairy farms in the Philadelphia district in the Western Cape, took part with 3 independent judges judging 2 or 3 groups of 4 cows in a group from each farm. Cows were judged mainly on body shape and conformation (called dairyness), udder shape and attachment, as well as teat length and placement.
