Weighing in at 576kg, it is by the British Blue sire, Gass Cheggers and was bought from Rob Jones, Argoed at Brecon market in February. A winner at Somerset show in the summer, its next outing will be the East of England Smithfield Festival.

 

Judge, Philip Parrott, Buckinghamshire, said his champion was a tremendous heifer with a wonderful top line, was very square across its plates and well balanced with good conformation making it ideal for all trades.

 

Standing reserve was the steer and Limousin-sired champion, The Gangster from Phil and Sharon Sellers, Lincolnshire. Bought from David Jarman, Workingon, Cumbria after winning the championship at the suckled calf sale at Carlisle in March, it weighs 572kg and is by Rossignol out of a British Blue cross Charolais cow.

 

Sassy Lassy, by the Limousin, Waindale UFO took the reserve heifer championship for Jennifer Hyslop, Ayrshire. Bought from John Smith-Jackson at Leyburn in the spring, it was a winner at the National Limousin show at Carlisle.

 

Taking the reserve steer title were Marwood and Wilkinson, Leyburn, with Moofassa, a 628kg British Blue-sired steer bought from Dafydd Lewis at Brecon in February, which was reserve champion at Northumberland County and a winner at the Great Yorkshire Show.

 

Leading the baby beef section were Alan, Helen, Richard and Clare Dent, Hexham with their home-bred heifer, Hot Totty. By the Limousin, Wilodge Gold Card out of a home-bred cow, it was making its show ring debut.

 

Reserve champion was the second prize winning heifer, Holly, from Eddie and Bunty Morgan, Carmarthenshire. Bought privately from Berwyn Hughes, Lampeter, it was also at its first event.

Sheep

In the sheep ring claiming the supreme title were Martin and Val Brown, Leyburn, with their continental champions, a home-bred pair of three-quarter Beltex lambs weighing 45.5kg apiece which were part of the winning group of three at the Great Yorkshire show and also champions at the Penrith progeny show.

 

Judge, Sara Gibbons, Brecon said she was very impressed with the standard of lambs she judged, but her champions were full of meat with tremendous gigots and deep loins and were as close to a pair as it is possible to get.

 

The Browns also won the native Shortwool championship with a pair of Suffolk crosses and daughter, Hannah, was the winner of the single lamb class with a Beltex cross.

 

Reserve supreme went to Robert Garth, North Yorkshire, with his winning pair of trimmed lambs, home-bred three-quarter Beltex wethers weighing 42kg each.
