The Royal Three Counties Show opened on Friday 17th June with a scorching hot day of judging for the British White breed classes. It was the seven-year-old breeding cow Dallyashes Tattersett from Mrs Angie Hamilton, Carmarthenshire, which topped the order on the day with her December 2021-born heifer calf Dallyashes Tattinger at foot. Mrs Hamilton stood at the top of the line just ahead of her daughter, Mrs Ruhi Pugh, Lancashire, who was awarded the Reserve Female and Reserve Breed Championships with her young cow Amaroo Meringue, a 2016-born cow also with heifer calf at foot, Amaroo Moët.
Winner of the Male Championship was senior bull Lordswood Oliver from Mr James Brain, Warwickshire. This homebred six-year-old is owned in partnership with neighbouring breeder Mr Mervyn Forster, and is sired by Mr Forster’s Elgany Fletcher. Reserve Male Champion was yearling Albany Oscar from Mr Leslie Cook, Cambridgeshire, and taking home the Halberd Trophy for Junior Champion was yearling heifer Templar Louisiana from K & RP Harding, Leicestershire.
