Judge Ashley Fleming, Downpatrick, Co. Down, said:  “When you are in this you are looking for a heifer that comes to the top of her breed.

“This one had tremendous ring presence; she went around the ring really enjoying herself.  She has a tremendous, long body and moves exceptionally well with really good legs and feet.”
