Victory for Elmo at Royal County of Berkshire Show
Smiles please . . . a happy Julie Haste, from E C Haste & Son, of Shebbear, in North Devon, took the British Blue breed championship with her three-year-old bull Oxcroft Elmo at the Royal County of Berkshire Show.
The last county show of the summer, it was held at Newbury over the weekend, and as usual there was an excellent turnout of cattle from all over the UK – with a strong contingent of Westcountry exhibitors.
Patrick Greed, from Rewe, near Exeter, took the Reserve Junior Interbreed Continental Championship with his homebred 18-month Limousin bull Killerton Hemingway.
And Lorraine and Jeff Dunn from South Tawton, Okehampton, were delighted to take the Reserve Champion Interbreed Continental Championship in the Pairs competition with their homebred British Blue heifers Highridge Blues Glisten and Highridge Blues Glitter. The Dunns also won Reserve Champion in the Progeny classes with the same pair.
