A pair of homebred beasts have taken the top two spots in the commercial cattle here at Builth, with both the champion and reserve bred by their exhibitors – a bit of a change from the big spenders dominating by great to see some hard working breeders rewarded.
Top spot was taken by Tim Bodily with his Limousin sired heifer Peaches. This 582kg heifer is a Vivaldi daughter out of a British Blue cross cow.
Reserve overall was another Limousin, cross, this time the steer champion Mr Dynamite from Emily Jones, He is a Haltcliffe Chico son out of a Blue x Limousin cow and tipped the scales at 508kg.
Baby beef champion was Nessa, a Limousin cross heifer from the Price family. She weighed 400kg.
