Out of Trueman Foxtrot, a Wilodge Vantastic daughter, it was reserve senior champion within the Limousn breed at the Pedigree Calf Fair at Beef NI Expo in November. A natural calf itself, it was also a twin to another heifer.

 

The 20-month heifer is set to return to home ground before being put in-calf in a couple of months.

Reserve

Reserve champion went to Carlhurlie Epic from James Porter, Dromore, Co. Down, a three-year-old Aberdeen Angus bull on its first time out.

 

Purchased in the dispersal sale of the late Rae Grieve's herd in December for 5,000gns it is now used as a stock bull for Mr Porter's Old Glenort herd.

 

Mr Coghill said: "If this bull can breed how he looks himself, he will make a great name for himself in the breed."

Beef Shorthorn

Mr Porter also came out top in the Shorthorn championship with cow Uppermill Gipsy Robyn, with calf Uppermill Ricky at foot.

 

By Ardoyne Bombus, a bull with said to be very good breeding top females, it is home bred.
