Home-bred by Bluegrass Lord Actionman, it was being shown for the first time having calved in November and currently giving 23kg at 5.16 per cent butterfat and 3.90 per cent protein.

Judge, Ashley Fleming, from Northern Ireland said it was an easy winner which was clean over its shoulders with width through the mammary system and great openness and spring of rib.

 

Reserve

 

Standing reserve was another heifer making its show ring debut, the Ayrshire champion, Halmyre Urr Louise 297, from L. Davidson and Son, Castle Douglas, who were showing at the event for the first time since it moved to the NEC.

 

Just four weeks calved and giving 29kg, it is by the home-bred sire, Halmyre Urr Lieutenant.

 

Also making the final line-up was the Holstein champion, Cramar Brasilia Cutes by Butz-Butler Atwood Brady. Bred by Roger and Diane Steeples, Kettering, who subsequently sold a half-share to Oliver and Jo Williams, it is the first heifer to be classified VG89 this year.

 

The British Friesian title went to the in-calf heifer, Oakalby Benloyal Debbie 32 by Blackisle Benloyal from E.S. Burroughs and Son, who run 280 mainly British Friesians at Beccles in Suffolk. It was second at the All Britain All Breeds calf show last year.

 

Kedar Rhapsody by Vetsch’s Nesta Calvin took the Brown Swiss championship for T. Lochhead and Sons, Mouswald, which having calved in December, is currently giving 25kg and is projected to give 7,500kg at 305 days. It was a winner at the event as a maiden last year and was also reserve champion at UK Dairy Expo.

 

The supreme Guernsey was Hinton Nancy by Lang Haven Grumpy Novak which calved in December. Owned and bred by James Bartlett, it was reared and shown by the Adams family, Curry Rivel, Somerset.
