My spy (Miss Wales thank you very much!) has just informed me that the earlier heifer champion from today’s judging, Croftends Candy from the Bellas family, has just taken the overall British Blue title at Borderway Mart.

Tapped out by David Ellas, she stands ahead of the senior champion Graymar Churchill from Graham Jones, who has had to settle for the reserve overall spot.

Both Jonathan and I have been there or there abouts in terms of our catalogue choices, but I admit there have been one or two suprises. I can’t wait to head up there tonight for tomorrow’s sale and see what trade will do – I reckon we’re in for a good day!!

Pictures will follow as soon as possible………….
