Charolais breeder Gilbert Crawford is celebrating success after notching up yet another victory at Clogher Valley Show this week. This is one of the largest agricultural shows on the circuit and attracts a huge crowd of thousands annually.
Supreme Charolais champion was the mighty two year old heifer “Coolnaslee Diane” – a daughter of the noted Allanfauld Superscot who has bred so well in the Maghera herd.
This outstanding female has enjoyed an enviable show season securing the Supreme award at Balmoral Show in May followed on by a string of successes at Ballymena, Ballymoney, Armagh and Omagh.
Judging for the coveted Interbreed title at Clogher was in the hands of David Leggat, Scotland who placed Coolnaslee Diane as the Overall Champion describing her as an “easy winner – and without doubt one of the best Charolais females that I have ever seen”.
Gilbert Crawford was delighted with his outing at Clogher, where he also picked up an array of rosettes with his show team of Charolais.
