Taking the overall supreme beef championship at Countryside Live was Tecwyn Jones with Black Beauty. This 15 month old Limousin cross heifer sired by Shire Apollo was bred by John-Smith Jackson and was bought privately for an undisclosed amount. This isn’t the first win for Black Beauty as she took interbreed title at Denby and Flintshire Show earlier in the year. This is the second year in a row Mr Jones has won the supreme title at Countryside Live having taken the title with Jager Bomb last year.
