By a Penrenant ram, it took the breed championship at the Royal Welsh and was reserve breed champion at Kington Show last year.

 

Judge Jonathan Long, Worcester, said: “This ewe is full of breed character with tremendous style and presence and handled exceptionally well across her top line.”

 

Reserve was a Ryeland shearling tup, Widgits Xemplar, from Steve Gray and Doreen Smillie Gray, Herefordshire. Bought as a lamb, it was reserve male champion at Devon County and Royal Bath and West this year and breed champion at Monmouth Show.

In the beef cattle lines, inter-breed judge Robert Neill, Jedburgh, chose Church Stretton-based Fred Robinson’s 2013-born Salers bull, Seawell Invader, by the imported sire Denver, as champion.

 

Taking the reserve was a Limousin heifer from Paul Dawes, Dinmore, Herefordshire. Dinmore Naturelle is a January 2017-born heifer by 145,000gns Trueman Jagger out of Dinmore Elle.

 

Taking the native inter-breed title was a Highland heifer, Urshula 1 of Yarchester, from M.J. and V.M. Monk.

 

Leominster-based Burnett and Lloyd partnership took the commercial championship with a Limousin cross steer, Dark Shot.

 

Taking the top spot in the small selection of dairy cattle was the Holstein champion, January 2015-born Hawksmoor Dot 91 by Farnear-TBR Altaavalon, out of the EX92 Hawksmoor Dot 71, from Rob Clare, Market Drayton.
