The judge, Robert Proctor, Thetford said ‘it is a great cow which is very youthful after having five calves and is a great credit to the breed.’
Standing reserve was the any other breed champion, Wigboro Wick Evolution Peggy, a home-bred Ayrshire second calver from John Smith, who set up his own Ayrshire herd five years ago which runs alongside the family’s 180 Holsteins at St Osyth, Essex.
