York­shire show win­ners

The Galloway News - - FARMING -

The Ross fam­ily from Romes­beoch, Shaw­head, had a suc­cess­ful trip to the Great York­shire Show at Har­ro­gate, which is one of the lead­ing events in the coun­try.

Their Nerys 1306 of Romes­beoch won the Chol­monde­ley Per­pet­ual Tro­phy for the breed cham­pi­onship af­ter win­ning the fema l e cham­pi­onship.

Jim and Se­lena along with son Doug, daugh­ter Carolyn and grand­son Lo­gan brought home their 19th Gal­loway breed cham­pi­onship, male cham­pion and ju­nior cham­pion from this pop­u­lar show which at­tracts many lo­cal vis­i­tors.

Lift­ing the cham­pi­onship rosette was their seven year old Nerys 1306 of Romes­beoch whose fa­mous Nerys mother won many cham­pi­onships, in­clud­ing the Royal High­land Show, Great York­shire show and Na­tional shows.

Nerys 1306 is a Kirkmabrec­k Nim­rod daugh­ter and was shown with bull calf foot by Turbo Tam of Nether Cleugh. Turbo Tam also re­ceived the red, white and blue rosette for male cham­pion. This 2012 born bull is by Black­craig Quest and the red rosettes con­tin­ued for the Ross Fam­ily as they re­ceived ju­nior cham­pion for Nerys 1921 of Romes­beoch, a 21-mon­thold heifer by Pen­ning­hame Win­ward who was bought at the Pen­ning­hame dis­per­sal.

In the Belted Gal­loway classes Mrs Anne Bell of Nether Clifton, South­wick, won the ju­nior cham­pi­onship re­serve ti­tle with her heifer Clifton Lily while she also took re­serve hon­ours in the male cham­pi­onship with her bull Clifton Lochin­var. She also won the pairs and group of three an­i­mals

It was a cham­pi­onship win­ning show for Suffolk ex­hibitors Sharon and Annabelle Hid­dle­ston with their Barn­soul Pedi­grees from Irongray, Dumfries.

Tak­ing the supreme cham­pi­onship and The Sir Price-Smith Tro­phy, were de­lighted first time ex­hibitors, Sharon and Annabelle whose fe­male cham­pion, a gim­mer out of a Strathisla ewe by the 20,000gns Muir­ton One Di­rec­tion, on her first time out, took the hon­ours.

One Di­rec­tion was also sire of the fe­male cham­pion at last year’s show. They con­tin­ued their suc­cess by win­ning the ewe lamb class, with a pre­vi­ously un­shown ewe lamb.

One of the beef judges at the show was Don­ald Big­gar of Chapel­ton, Haugh of Urr, who placed the ju­nior cham­pi­onship and also the Blythe­wood beef pairs com­pe­ti­tion.
