National Dairy Show NEC Overall Champion Showmanship title goes to Beth Mellish

By Simon Wragg

It turned out to be Lady’s Day on the second day of Livestock Event 2013 as four female contenders for the Overall Champion Showman took to the ring in NEC’s Hall 17 where Beth Mellish (15) has just triumphed over Claire Daw (18) in a close run final.

The judge Miss Jarvis praised all the competitors but suggested Beth Mellish edged ahead having stood her animal well through to end of the competition. And having maintained a smile throughout the classes Beth Mellish suggested she was enjoying the experience – an attribute the judge hoped other competitors would adopt.
