Wales & Borders British Blue Club Calf Show
Saturday 11th October 2008


Saturday 11th October 2008 was another extremely successful day for the Wales & Borders British Blue Club as they held their second Calf Show.

The judge, Mr Philip Halhead, of Norbreck Genetics, complimented the exhibitors on the outstanding quality of the 24 calves on show. He also gave a commentary explaining his reasons for placing the calves in a particular order. This was greatly appreciated by everyone and gave much food for thought.

The judge decided that females shone on a very damp, drizzly day and awarded both the Supreme Championship and Reserve Supreme to heifers.

The Supreme and Female Champion was Betws Donna. Donna is an exceptional 8 month old heifer from Rhys & Gill Bellis, sired by Empire D’Ochain and out of Currare Primrose. This was the second time Rhys had won the calf show and meant he continues to hold the GT&E Feeds Sweetblends Perpetual Trophy for another year. This continues to be a very successful year for the Betws herd.

The Reserve Supreme and Reserve Champion Female was very sweet 4 month old Dragon Blues Dilys. She was bred and exhibited by Geraint and Kim Williams, who were showing cattle for the first time this season and must be very proud of their young herd. Dilys is out of Dundrod Sophie and sired by Bringlee Volkawagon.

The Champion male was also from Rhys & Gill Bellis, Betws Dustin a 9 month old Blak Du Baty calf out of Croft Urella.

Dragon Blues David completed another successful show for Geraint & Kim Williams when he took reserve male. He is a 5 month old son of Dafydd D’Ochain out of Hazelwood Petal.

Congratulations and thanks to everyone at the show who made the day a very enjoyable one for other competitors and visitors alike.
