Mortimers Charolais continued their winning form of recent weeks at today’s South of England Show where they took the interbreed championship with their heifer Mortimers Cameo. This one, placed by judge Danny Wyllie, is by Mortimers Upstart and out of Mortimers Neccesity. The herd’s main show cow Mortimers Urovision is being rested until the Highland in two weeks time.
Taking the reserve overall championship was the Limousin champion and overall male champion, Nebo Viking from Smiths of Bloxham. Led out by stockman Andrew Bishop, Viking took the breed championship yesterday under Colin Hutchings and is one of a team of herd sires for Peter Smith’s Ironstone herd at Banbury, Oxon.
