Lifting the silverware in the show’s hotly contested pig championship were Brian and Margaret Mulkeen with their September 2009-born Welsh gilt Garsfield Nina 7. This one has been unbeated so far this year in her class and is by Owesby James and out of Garsfield Nina 6, the only Welsh sow owned by the couple. Reserve overall here was a January-born Middle White junior boar from Steve Richardson and Janice Wood, Finnington Captain. This is by Joben Captain and out of Finnington Fair Lady, one of two Middle White sows owned by the partnership alongside four Large Black sows.
