A second Breed Championship success of the year came for Brian & Marilyn Palmer at Mid-Somerset Show on 15th August, this time with senior heifer Porlock Zareen taking the overall title and her stable mate Porlock Hilda in reserve. It was the first time that British White breed classes were scheduled at the event in Shepton Mallet, this year held on a brand new site after previously being located just down the road for over 100 years!
The British White Cattle Society would like to thank the Mid-Somerset Agricultural Society for including classes for the breed for the first time, as well as the exhibitors who filled them and we hope to be able to bring forward even more support next year. Thanks also go to judge Jess Maynard of Columbpark & Sapphire Livestock, Crediton, Devon.
