Dairy ti­tles con­tested

The Galloway News - - FARMING -

The annual South West Scot­land Dairy Show held at Wal­lets Marts, Cas­tle Dou­glas, on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 31, was a great suc­cess with 60 an­i­mals for­ward from four breeds.

Judge Bryce Sloan, Darn­law, Ayr­shire, had a tough job with ex­hibitors who had trav­elled from as far as Bal­lantrae in the West and Hex­ham in the East to com­pete at the show.

Tak­ing the cham­pi­onship in a strong Hol­stein sec­tion was Col­vend At­las Rox EX94 from Steven and Tracey Roan, Dal­beat­tie. Fresh at the be­gin­ning of Au­gust in her sev­enth lac­ta­tion she is giv­ing 44 litres a day, hav­ing pro­duced 75 tonnes life­time to date. She is the sev­enth gen­er­a­tion of Ex­cel­lent clas­si­fied cows from the Roxy fam­ily and has pre­vi­ously stood se­cond at South West Scot­land Dairy Show, Dum­fries Show and Ste­wartry Show.

Fur­thest trav­elled ex­hibitor Richard Baynes from Hex­ham had a worth­while jour­ney when his fifth calved Ayr­shire cow, West Moss­giel Miss Mod­ern 28 EX94-3E stood cham­pion. Sired by West Moss­giel Aramis she stood sale cham­pion and was pur­chased at the North­ern Na­tional Ayr­shire Sale 2017 for 3000gns from the late Stu­art Gilliland. Fresh 42 days and peak­ing at 68kgs she has given 57,017kg life­time so far. Last year she stood third se­nior cow at AgriS­cot and 1st PLI.

Jonny Lochhead, Mouswald, se­cured the Brown Swiss cham­pi­onship with Kedar Alino Car­men. The heifer also stood first 3yr old and Hon­ourable Men­tion at UK Dairy Day. Fresh in May with a Jedi heifer calf she has pro­duced 4455kgs at 4.51%bf and 3.55%p so far this lac­ta­tion.

Cly­de­val­ley Tequila Flora 2 EX91 stood cham­pion Jersey for Ali Cook, Lochmaben. This third lac­ta­tion cow is 70 days fresh and giv­ing 42 litres a day. Pur­chased pri­vately from breeder Robert Hunter she has since stood Jersey cham­pion at Dum­fries Show 2017 and se­cond Maiden Heifer at UK Dairy Expo 2015. She has a daugh­ter by Vin­di­ca­tion con­signed to the Black & White Sale at Carlisle on December 5.

The show­man­ship classes were well sup­ported with Ruby Pat­ter­son win­ning the ju­nior class and cousin Kat­lyn McCormick win­ning the se­niors.

An­drew Roan led Col­vend Clas­sic Honey to win the ju­nior calf class, while Rory La­mont led Brian and Michael Yates’ Lo­gan Di­a­mond­back B Jodie to win the se­nior calf class.

The show com­mit­tee is grate­ful for the sup­port of ex­hibitors, spon­sors, spec­ta­tors and the yard staff at Wal­lets Marts who made the show a fan­tas­tic event.
