Aberdeen-Angus

The Aberdeen-Angus Winter National Show was judged by Hamish Sclater of the Deveron herd, Turriff.

 

He awarded the overall female championship and calf championship to Bryan Ronan and Carol Stephens, Appleby, with the April 2014-born Jerusalem Duchess P308, by Rawburn Julio Eric, and out of Jerusalem Duchess G123. This one came through as winner of the heifer calf championship.

 

The male championship, bull calf and reserve overall championship went to Mark and Neil Wattie, Alford, Aberdeenshire, with Tonley Jose Ebanks-Blake P050, a son of Blelack Evor H929 out of Blelack Jubilee Erica F422, a cow bought from the Blelack matrons’ sale.

Hereford

It was a clean sweep for the Livesey family and stockman, Darragh McManus, Leicestershire, in the Hereford calf championship. They took the male title and overall supreme with November 2013-born Normanton 1 Laertes, with January 2014-born Normanton 1 Lionel standing reserve male and reserve overall champion.

 

They also had the female champion, January 2014-born Normanton 1 Jews 11. All the Liveseys’ calves are from the same flush of Normanton 1 Jews Ear C21 which also bred the 2011 Hereford bull of the year, and Dendor 1 Harinordoquy.

Simmental

The Simmental calf championship went to junior champion, Deerhurst Fern, a January 2014-born heifer from G.T. Van der Gucht, Gloucester, who was competing at the event for the first time. By Penwern Amber, out of Deerhurst Bridesmaid, it was making its showring debut.

British Blue

Auchenlay IO, a home-bred October 2013-born heifer by Heros Du Peroy, out of Auchenlay Fair Maid, from Robert, Maimie and Sam Paterson, Dunblane, was the winner of the British Blue calf championship on its first showring outing.
