Well a good start to a rather cold morning (well I am a soft Southerner!) in Perth see’s Turriff, Aberdeenshire-based Hamish Sclater take the Aberdeen-Angus female championship.
The first animal to be catalogued, Deveron Proud Imogen E153 is a May 2005 female by Gigginstown Toy Boy and out of a home bred cow. Going back to Ebon Hill Extra Gold on the sire side, Imogen is no stranger to the show ring having taken a second prize ticket as a baby heifer calf at the 2005 Black Beauty Bonanza show. Taking the reserve title was Erskine-based Matthew Stevenson’s Linburn Emma F131. With Alastair Wyllie at the lead this June 2006 daughter of Halbeath King Kong is a grand daughter of Dalrene Cruz. With a milk figure of +4 and a terminal sire index of +21, she goes back to Netherton Lord Jockey on the maternal side.
