DRIVING RAIN and gale force winds failed to dampen enthusiasm among exhibitors at the 120th Lincolnshire Show where longstanding supporters were among those heading home with silverware.

A strong entry of the native Lincoln Red headed up the cattle section with R I Clough & Sons of Spilsby, Lincs’ 20-month-old bull Beverley Exalted taking the breed championship ahead of Leics-based RJ & GD Goodwin’s 26-month-old heifer Hemingby Bridget.

In the beef interbreed, Bob and Gill Hudson’s British Simmental two-year-old bull Glebehill Nod, weighing in at an impressive 1.25t, took the title.

Handler Gill Hudson of Barton-in-Fabis, Notts, was delighted: “He’s homebred and by our stock bull Glebehill Just William. And to take this title on only his second outing is terrific.”

Also celebrating was Mick Saxby and staff from Nottingham Trent University when the Jersey cow Brackenhurst Triumphs Borage took its quota of cups. 

These included best in breed having second or subsequent calf, breed champion and ultimately interbreed champion titles.

Calved in November last year, she was still giving 30 litres/day, said Mr Saxby. “Not only is she a good show cow, she is a hard working member of the 120-cow milking herd at Brackenhurst College and that’s what it’s about.”

Entries in the sheep section were up markedly this year, marking a turning point for a species that was once integral to the county’s farming fortunes.

Interbreed judge David Raine of Penrith, Cumbria made light of the stormy conditions at this year’s show as he picked out his interbreed champion in the form of a two-shear British Charollais.

His owner, Osgodby-based Joe Coulson was showing for his 16th year.

Mr Coulson was justly proud. “The ram stood overall champion at Newark in 2003 and reserve champion male at last year’s Great Yorkshire. It’s just a solid, well-fleshed tup true of its breed,” he said.

Also taking top spot after 20 years exhibiting at the Lincoln Show, was pig breeder Sue Hudson.

She saw her six-month-old Berkshire male take the champion boar title and then the British Pig Association champion’s title in the regional heat of the Pig of the Year Award.

Mrs Hudson, who has a small herd of just seven sows supplying a Cleethorpes butcher with finishers shares the award with husband, Tony and son, Paul.

“It looks like we’ll have to make arrangements to go to the Great Yorkshire for the BPA Pig of the Year final,” she said.

Although not on the awards list, exhibitors were full of praise for show stewards and attendants. “They can’t do enough to help,” said one grateful, wind-swept exhibitor.
