The Sowary’s are no stranger to the showing scene, after bagging the champion title at February’s inaugural BOCM Pauls sponsored calf show. Therefore it was know surprise they were also responsible for the first and third prize Limousin heifer calves at this weeks show and sale, which made £318 and £225 respectively, along with the first prize Continentals class winner, a Charolais bull calf which sold for £315.
