This third calving cow which judge Mrs P Stanley  described as ‘superb’ was reserve interbreed at Hertfordshire County Show and was also interbreed champion at Rutland Show. Shown by Neil Brown and weighing in at 1250kg this one heads to the Royal Welsh Show.

 

In reserve was a Limousin cow Fleethill Sal with calf at foot from the Dinmore herd of  Paul Davies, Hereford. This old timer at 10 years old was interbreed champion at Cheshire two years ago as well as champion at Monmouth two years running. The calf at foot is full brother to Dinmore Bandit which sold for 28,000gns at Carlisle in 2008. This one will be shown at Cheshire County Show next.
