Following on from being crowned steer champion and Limousin breed champion, Jager Bomb from Tecwyn Jones, Wales, triumphed overall.

 

This one is by a British Limousin bull and out of a British Blue x cow.  It is the 8th show of the year for this beast which won champion steer at the Royal Welsh Show.  Mr Jones is no stranger to Countryside Live, and lifted the title of reserve supreme beef back in 2008.

 

He now plans to take Jager Bomb on to Agri-Expo before judging the beef classes at Smithfield.

 

Taking reserve supreme beef champion, as well as reserve Limousin breed champion and heifer champion, was heifer Minni M from Mr M L Howatson & Son.

Judge Phillip Sellers said of the championship:  “These are two outstanding animals.  The bullock is 654kg but it’s all quality.  He is what I like from a bullock.  The heifer is very fine and very feminine, and eyecatching from the word go.

 

“I have gone for the bullock as the champion because I think he is more fleshy on the loin and has more length and strength.”
