In the National Rare and Minority Breeds Show held as part of the Royal Three Counties Show on Sunday 19th June, it was Dallyashes Tapestry from Mrs Angie Hamilton, Carmarthenshire, which this time pipped her stable mate Dallyashes Tattersett - Breed Champion from the classes held at the show on Friday - to the top spot.
Repeat success also came for Mr James Brain, Warwickshire, in the bull section, when his homebred stock bull Lordswood Oliver was crowned Male Champion for the second time in three days, with Albany Oscar from Mr Leslie Cook, Cambridgeshire, in reserve.
Judge Mr Denis Jenkins, a Red Poll breeder from Norfolk, was delighted with the selection of cattle forward and complimented the breeders on giving him some very competitive classes to ponder. His selection was made for the Breed Championship based on the superb job the young heifer Dallyashes Tapestry was doing, rearing a tremendous bull calf at just 2 years old and a credit to her breeder.
