Buyer of the $7600 top-priced lot at the Illawarra Red Revolution Sale Lachlan Alwer, Invergordon, Vic, with the vendors Glen Gordon, Cohuna, Vic, Ben Govett, Dingey, Vic, and Daniel Bacon, Tennyson, Vic.

The champion Illawarra cow at International Dairy Week delivered for its owners at the Illawarra Red Revolution Sale on Tuesday night with one its calves making the top price.

The first lot of the night was the choice of a pair of embryo-transfer daughters of the grand champion Illawarra Wallumlands Sunstorm 8.

The sire of the embryos was Treeton Pingerly, which was named premier sire at the show.

Buyer Lachlan Alwer, Invergordon, Vic, selected calf B, paying $7600.

Mr Alwer also bought the second top-priced lot, the show's intermediate champion Llandovery Thorpes Stella for $6700.

He rounded out his purchases with a heifer offered by M Flemming and C McPhee, Tocumwal, NSW, MCF Topsy’s Typhoon, for $2100.

The trio will be added to Mr Alwer's Illawarra stud.

He said he milked about 90 Illawarra's in his herd of 180, liking their easy calving, high fertility and temperament.

All twelve lots offered in the sale were sold to an average of $4350.
