Show day was wet and cold at the Great Yorkshire Show but it didn’t dampen the spirits with water proofs on and brollies up we saw an excellent line up of Salers in the show ring and Judge, Thomas Kelly from Northern Ireland had to deliberate over some excellent stock.

Salers were also picked fourth in the interbreed groups, which was a great accolade to the exhibitors taking part.

Overall breed champion went to the Livesey’s with a 2 year old heifer Cleuchhead Merry 1049 sired by Drumlegagh Brandon.
