Limousins lead the way at Nottinghamshire County #Showsandsales

By his stock bull Fenomen, which is owned in partnership with Aled Edwards, Llandovery, it was making its showring debut. Scorboro Melody, a heifer by the same sire, also claimed the reserve overall junior title for Mr Bloom.

 

Standing reserve supreme was the overall senior female champion, Burnbank Jenny, a three-year-old Limousin cow from Paul Barwood and Anita Padfield, Great Yarmouth, which was shown with its first calf by Ulm.

 

Reserve senior champion was Witham Bank Javelin, a three-year-old home-bred British Blue bull from John and Wendy Laight, Boston.

DAIRY

The dairy inter-breed title went to the Holstein champion, Blydale Quality Lynn, a heifer by Maple-Downs-I G W Attwood, which had been All Britain junior heifer in 2015. Having calved in December it is currently giving 34kg daily. This was the first inter-breed title with a home-bred animal for Sam and Tracey Wake, Kettering, who milk 17 Holsteins alongside their full-time jobs.

 

Standing reserve was the Jersey champion, Design Daydream 165. The second calver was bought by Graham Armitage, Wakefield, at a sale on the island of Jersey last year, with its breeder, John James Le Feuvre retaining a half share. It calved in December and is currently giving 22kg.

Andrew Bishop, who was showing sheep at the event for the first time, claimed the sheep inter-breed title with a home-bred Beltex shearling ewe. By a home-bred ram out of a ewe going back to the flock’s foundation female line, Mr Bishop thinks it is the best sheep he has bred.
The any other continental breed champion, Knighton Slowsuck, a Rouge shearling ram from Percy Tait, Worcester, stood reserve. Out of the 2007 Royal Show inter-breed champion, it was having its first outing.
