Welsh Winter Fair 2011 – pig championship

The pig ring was dominated by Andrew Davies of Andrew T Davies and Son, Trial Mawr, Llanon, Aberystwyth. He secured both the pairs and individual championship with his homebred gilts.

 

Taking the pairs title were two Welsh litter mates out of Milday Tessa and by Tralmawr Emperor. It was the first show outing for the pigs which weighed in at 91kg.

 

Judge Arwyn Morgans of Morgans Family Butchers Builth and Brecon said: “They are very smart, long, well shaped and ideal for the butcher. They’re as matched as you can ever get.”

 

In facts Mr Morgans likes what he saw so much that he purchased the pair after the show. One of the pair also walked away with the title of supreme individual pig.
