The IHFA Champion Cow Award went to Hallow Attic Christina owned by Philip and Linda Jones of Hallow Holsteins. In 2017, she won both the Glanbia Supreme Championship at Emerald Expo in Virginia and Supreme Champion at the National Livestock Show, Tullamore. This is the second year that Hallow have been awarded the IHFA Champion Cow Award.

The All Ireland Awards was based on submitting a photograph entry of animals exhibited at a local or national show.

The entries were scrutinized by a pre selection panel of judges who took into account the quality of the animal as photographed and their winning successes at various shows. There was a final selection of six photographs which were printed in the Winter Journal.

The winning entries were based on the combined placings of seventeen judges who adjudicated on the photographs in each class as they appeared in the Winter Journal. Judges were selected from the IHFA judges panel representing the broad geographical area of the country and on the basis that they had no connections to entries in any of the classes. There were many entries, all of a high quality. The finalists in each class are as follows.
