Simmental is Suffolk Show beef champion

The interbreed beef title here at Suffolk Show this morning has gone to the Simmental champion, Dirnanean Sarah 58 from David and Lesley Sapsed. This one, bred by the McGowan family in Perthshire, is by Starline Nelson and was shown with her bull calf by Kramer at foot. She was bought from Perth in February 2007 as a maiden heifer for 5000gns and has bred three bull calves, the first two of which have been sold for pedigree use after successful show careers.TS Suffolk Beef Champ 2010.JPGTaking the reserve overall ticket were the Mash family with their Limousin cow with calf at foot, Brockhurst Bolshoi.
