Cattle shine at Royal Cornwall Show
NEAR-RECORD crowds meant the Royal Cornwall Show at Wadebridge bounced back in style, despite fewer pig and cattle entries and no sheep.
Unlike the Devon County and Bath and West shows, the Cornwall Show for once did not have to contend with torrential rain. Its Food and Farming tent, assisted by Objective One cash and the Womens Farming Union, also gave local food producers an opportunity to promote their products.
In the cattle lines there were celebrations too for the Holstein and dairy interbreed winners owners the Cox family. Their cow Ketby Rox was placed ahead of the Christophers Ayrshire in-milk heifer Rosehill Magenta H186 who also won the exhibitor-bred dairy interbreed ticket.
The same happened in the beef championship where the reserve to the Quick familys Limousin, A J Thomass Devon bull Bollowal Frederick was exhibitor-bred interbreed beef champion.
