Interbreed judge Terry Coghill praised Vandal for his exceptional fleshing and locomotion, proclaiming him an excellent mover for his flesh and backend. “He was fluid every time I looked at him and carried a great topline too.”


In reserve Mr Coghill had the Welsh Black champion Seisiog Bedwyr 129 from Tecwyn Jones and family. Bedwyr is by Mynydd Morgan and out of homebred cow Seisiog Bet 94.

Mr Coghill said Bedwyr was the best Welsh Black he’d ever seen and said he was just lacking on flesh compared to the Limousin. “I don’t know much about Welsh Blacks, but what a beast he is, he has power, bone and such balance.”
