Results in after strong entries for Stars of the Future calf show

Insights

There were more than 400 pedigree beef calves competing at the Farmers Guardian and Farming Eye supported Stars of the Future Calf Show at United Auctions, Stirling, where Brian Wills, Forfar, was in charge of the inter-breed judging.

His first championship winner, the senior native champion, was the Beef Shorthorn heifer, Lintonpriory Millicent 5, from the Gordon Brooke Trust, Earlston.

 

Brought out by Drew Hyslop, this Stonehills Pearls Perfection daughter, is out of Holmeere Millicent 4th, herself a successful show cow who took two breed championships at the Royal Welsh, as well as reserve inter-breed there and reserve female champion at the Great Yorkshire and Royal Shows.

 

Mr Wills said: “This heifer oozed style, class, power and was bought out to perfection. Today I was looking for correctness and this heifer was easily the most correct of all my champions today.”

 

Standing reserve to her was the Highland senior champion, Frangag Dubh of Cladich from I. and M. Adams, Banchory. This February 2013-born Seonaigh Mor of Aroura daughter, out of Frangag Donn 10 of Torloisk, was champion at Echt and reserve at Tarland shows and was bought at Oban last October for 2,400gns.

 

The continental senior championship went to Ian and Wendy Callion, Stirling, with their Limousin, Lodge Indie. This September 2013-born heifer by Loosebeare Fantastic, out of Lodge Evita, was first at Perth Show, as well as winning best 2013-born heifer in the Scottish herd competition.

 

Reserve to her was the Charolais winner, Elgin Isaac, from the Milne Family, Elgin. By the 12,000gns Caylers Gladiator, this bull is out of Elgin Electra, which is full sister to 20,000gns Elgin Davinci. It has been unbeaten in its class to date and was reserve champion at Nairn Show and will be for sale in Stirling in February.

 

In the native junior championship, top spot went to the Aberdeen-Angus winner, Tonley Jose Ebanks-Blake P050 from Neil and Mark Wattie, Alford. By Blelack Evor H929, out of Blelack Jubilee Erica F442, it was bull calf and male champion at the Winter National Angus Show at Carlisle.

 

Reserve went to the Beef Shorthorn, Alvie Melba Hermione, by Chapelton Duke, from Messrs Williamson, Kincraig.

 

Making it a first for an exhibitor to win both the senior and junior continental championships, Wendy Callion led out Lodge Jalise to take the top spot. This March 2014-born Ronick Gains daughter, out of the imported Jacot daughter Balise, won best calf in the Scottish herd competition this year and was breed champion at Doune and Dunblane shows this summer at four months old.

 

Reserve to her was the Charolais, Raymond Irvine’s Inverlochy Julianne, an April 2014-born heifer by Blelack Giggsey, out of Redheughs Fanfare, exhibited by Raymond Irvine, Ballindoch.

 

Winning the inter-breed junior young handlers championship was 13-year-old Richard Davidson showing the Limousin heifer Corsality I-Candy.

 

The senior young handlers championship went to 16-year-old Stephen Taylor on the halter of the Charolais, Dunesk Jack.
