This year’s victor was Frogmore Helen, a home-bred heifer by Wilodge Cereberus out of Ironstone Frangelica from Chris White.

Due in October to Goldie’s Comet, it was reserve inter-breed junior female at last year’s show and has been reserve breed champion at Devon and Royal Three Counties Shows this year. Mr White who is a farm management consultant and runs a milk brokerage company, keeps 25 Limousin at Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire and set up the herd four years ago.

Inter-breed judge, Ronald Mackie from Crieff, Perthshire, said he could not fault his champion which was full of breed characteristics, had good legs and most importantly was well fleshed with a good top and loin.
