The 40th Anniversary Show and sale was held on Monday 18th August at Borderway Mart, Carlisle. The overall champion was a British Blue cross steer shown by G & JE Bell, Far Broom, Long Marton, Appleby-In-Westmorland, Cumbria.
This black 27 month old home bred steer called Flash, is sired by the registered British Blue bull Tamhorn Warrior (Sire: Seduisant De Fooz) and bred from a homebred Limousin cross cow.
Flash is no stranger to the show ring as he won 4th prize at the Borderway Agri Expo 2013 and has collected many rosettes at local shows this season. He sold for 248p/pk to gross £1688.88.
