This August-2017 born homebred gilt is by Prestcombe Goldarrow and out of Prestcombe Belle 7. It also took the inter-breed rare breed title and overall best exhibit at the Royal Three Counties show this year.

 

Reserve supreme and reserve female champion went to Broccwood Princess, a Large Black gilt from the Cullington family, Taverham, Norfolk, which gave them an inter-breed title on their first time showing at the Great Yorkshire.

 

The male championship went to Malcombe Hicks, Coventry, with the Gloucestershire Old Spot Windmill Gerald 48. A homebred boar, it also won the reserve inter-breed pig championship at the recent Cheshire show.

 

Pig of the Year competition

The highly regarded Pig of the Year title went to Greenhillfarm Maple Leaf 87, a Large White from Robert Emerson, Broughton Astley, Leicestershire. The July-2017 born gilt took inter-breed pig supreme at Cheshire as well as taking titles at the Royal Three Counties show this year.

 

Taking reserve was Prestcombe Belle 8, a British Saddleback from Julian Newth, Shepton Mallet, Cornwall. The homebred gilt was fresh from the inter-breed ring having won the supreme title hours earlier and will be shown at several of the Newth’s local shows next.
