Rob commented on his champion by saying: “I was impressed by the champion, she is a young productive cow with lots of stretch, scale and style. She has a correct young calf at foot and is producing it well.

“The bull that stood reserve is big, powerful and strong and I look forward to seeing his progeny in the future.”

Standing reserve overall was Etna, a French import from Alun Jones. This 2008-born Anjou son is out of Ondee and is on his first show in the UK since being purchased from breeder Gaec Elevage Missiel last October.
