The strong ringside favourite Sandyford Clover 10th from Eric and Blaise Tomlinson has just won a very powerful senior Ayrshire cow class, described by judge Peter Berresford as a sheer delight to judge. “You can only ever imagine dreaming of judging a class of such high quality,” he told ringsiders.

Clover is no stranger to the show ring, having won the dairy championship at this year’s South West Dairy Show and having taken top spot at the Great Yorkshire Show in the summer.

Taking the blue ticket home was another show favourite Halmyle Urr Princess Royal who took the top spot at the Royal Highland Show this year for the Davidson family, shown by H&H’s Katie Davidson.
