The winner was a Jersey second calver, Trengothal Tequila Bandanna, which had earlier taken the top honours in the coloured breeds dairy section.

 

Bought from the Trengothal dispersal in July this year, the Tower Vue Prime Tequila daughter was shown giving 25 litres daily, having calved in December last year.

 

Standing reserve was the Holstein champion, Crystal Explode Jazz 14, from Catherine Elms, Swindon.

 

No stranger to the prize list, the third calver took the supreme championship at Alresford as well as reserve breed champion at Royal Bath and West shows this season.

 

Home-bred by Wabash-Way Explode, it was shown giving 45 litres having calved with its third in June on what was its final outing this season.

 

Topping the line-up in the individual beef judging was the October-2017 born heifer, Dinmore Noueuse. The continental and Limousin champion, owned and bred by Herefordshire based Paul Dawes, is a Dinmore Lionheart daughter, out of Dinmore Joyeuse.

 

Its April-2015 born sire was one half of the Limousin pair to take the Burke trophy at Berkshire in 2017, while Noueuse herself also stood inter-breed champion at Burwarton show this year.

 

In reserve was the any other breed section winner, an April-2015 born Speckle Park cow, Long Ash Cookie, from Sid Hollier, Dorchester.

In the pig section, it was the Tamworth champion, Valstock Princess 894, which took the supreme title for Andrew Brown, Winsford.

 

Home-bred by Valstock Dream Boy 686, the August-2013 born sow was shown due in November with its ninth litter.

 

It stood Tamworth champion of champions as well as show champion at Dorset County Show in 2016.

 

The reserve inter-breed title went to a home-bred Duroc gilt, Maddaford Nancy 66, from Alan Rose, Somerset.

 

It was the Leicester Longwool, Astcote Kingfisher, which reigned supreme in the sheep lines. Owned and bred by Chris Sander, Northamptonshire, the 18-month-old ram by Ascote Heathcliff was on its second outing.

 

In reserve was the any other hill and heath breed champion, a three-shear Norfolk Horn ewe from Muschute Farm, London. Bought from David Walton, Preston, last year, this marks its first inter-breed placing alongside several rosettes on the local circuit for the ewe this summer.
