The baby beef champion, Biwt, a November 2014-born Limousin-cross heifer from Tudor Edwards, Corwen, went on to take the overall commercial championship.
Weighing in at 346kg and making its show ring debut, it is by a Limousin bull Mr Edwards bought from Andrew and Tom Davies, Llangadog, who were reserve female and reserve overall in the section with their home-bred Limousin-cross heifer, Hi Spec.
Leading the way in the over 426kg section and taking the reserve overall rosette, were Tecwyn Jones and family, Llanrwst, with Black Beauty, a home-bred July 2014-born heifer by Ronick Hawk.
It was making its first appearance since taking the baby beef championship at Beef Expo.
Reserve female and reserve in the section was Munchkin, a January 2014-born Limousin-sired heifer from Jason and Sarah Wareham, Sussex. Bred by J. Roberston, Pitlochry, it was bought for £5050 from Sarah Jane Jessop, after winning at the East of England Smithfield Festival last December and has been a big winner this summer.
Another bought for £5,000 after winning at the same event was the steer champion, Black Gold, an April 2014-born Limousin-cross. Weighing in at 614kg it is owned by B. E. Williams, Sennybridge, and bred by Balfour Baillie.
Reserve steer was Sky Walker, a January 2014-born Limousin-cross from Robert Elias, Garndolbenmaen, which was bought for £6,000 from breeders, Bowen and Bowen, Welshpool, after winning the baby beef championship at the Welsh Winter Fair last year.
