It was not less than 125 heifers and 75 cows competing in the different sections and G. Zeilon elected the "197", daughter of IMOLA, born on 01/09/2017 and owned by Carlos Manuel Toledo Costa, Grand Champion Heifer 2018. A feat for this heifer aged only 9½ months!

Carlos Manuel Toledo Costa leads a herd of 175 holstein cows with an average of 34 kg per day. His breeding is located in the town of Altares in the north-west of the island.

But where is Terceira?

Right in the middle of the Atlantic, Terceira is the 2nd largest island of the Azores archipelago (Portugal), where the famous anticyclone is formed which pushes the depressions over Continental Europe.
30 km long, the island of Terceira is the paradise of cows grazing green grass 365 days a year.
