A small but select group of Salers and young breeders exhibited at the 100th Royal Welsh Show. What we lacked in numbers we made up for in appearances, with great success in the Exhibitor Bred Pairs Championship with Fred and Bryn Robinson taking  reserve overall with Preenbank Neddy and Preenbank Miss Emma, missing out on the interbreed championship to the British Blues. Preenbank Miss Emma also took Gwawr Griffiths to reserve overall champion in the interbreed young handler.

Preenbank Neddy from Fred and Bryn Robinson took the overall Breed Championship, sired by Preenbank Lord Charles out of Preenbank Jolanda this Jan 2018 young bull looked the part and has gained a new home. Dragon Polled Britannia from Mathew Jones took reserve. A beautiful sweet young heifer sired by Rigel Khalid Poll out of Indiana Poll born March 2018 this 16month old heifer has plenty of scope and promise for the future.
