Limousin wins beef supreme at Monmouthshire

After bringing its show date forward and switching to a Saturday, Monmouthshire Show saw a Limousin bull take the beef championship.

 Champion beef animal was a home-bred Limousin bull from Adrian, and daughter-in-law, Anna.

It was a case of following in the family footsteps in the inter-breed beef ring at Monmouthshire Show.

Last year the Herefordshire-based Sherry Limousin herd of Terry and Sheila Jones took the limelight.

They were back again this time around but in the breed classes had to give way to a home-bred bull from their son, Adrian, and daughter-in-law, Anna.

Reserve in the beef was a black Limousin cross steer (right) from Gilbert Brooke, Alfrick, Worcestershire.

Victory in the breed placings was later followed by a four-point margin from the judging panel for their 12-month-old Mojo Mint, on what was the couple’s first ever competitive appearance since establishing what is now a three-cow herd four years ago at Llangybi, Usk.

In reserve was the commercial champion, a black Limousin cross steer from Gilbert Brooke, Alfrick, Worcestershire, and third was the Hereford breed leader, Bromley 1 Klusner, from M. and M. Roberts, Hereford.

Home-bred Limousins from T.W. Roberts and Son, Cardiff, led the inter-breed pairs parade.


Heading the overall and reserve championships in the dairy section were Holstein yearling heifers from Sophie Powell, Hengoed, Caerphilly.

Jonathan Long, Herefordshire, judged the sheep inter-breed and as male champion chose a two-year-old Moortown-bred North Country Cheviot from Monmouthshire Livestock Centre auctioneer Phil Jones and his wife, Amy, who live at Raglan.

Taking the reserve male rosette was a yearling Texel from the Millend flock of Russell and Gill Watkins, Hereford.

Reserve inter-breed sheep and heading the females was a home-bred yearling ewe from Rhys Cooke and his Nantyderri Blue Texel flock, Llantilio Crossenny, with a yearling Beltex from Andrew Bishop, Gloucester, in reserve.
