Brigadier commands top spot at Shropshire County

Breed Champion Carpenters Brigadier

In the Traditional Hereford section at Shropshire County Show on 25th May, it was the three-year-old bull Carpenters Brigadier, exhibited by Mrs S Cowle, Aylesbury, which claimed the Championship under judge Mr C Smith of Laxfield Herefords, Carmarthen. Purchased by Mrs Cowle in the 2023 Grass Masters sale from breeders I & H MacLeod, this bull joined the newly-formed Eutierria herd of Original Population animals at HighHedges Herefords in Buckinghamshire.

Reserve Breed Champion Carpenters Curly 20th

Standing in reserve was another Carpenters animal, the in-calf heifer Carpenters Curly 20th bred and exhibited by Mrs H MacLeod, Malvern, which also won the Female Championship just ahead of 2019-born cow Boresisle Regina 87th, bred by Mr & Mrs D Fenton and exhibited by Mrs S Cowle, shown with her April-born heifer calf Eutierria Regina 1st at foot.

Winning the John Featherstone Perpetual Trophy for the best yearling animal in the Traditional Hereford classes was junior heifer class winner Carpenters Curly 21st, also from Mrs H MacLeod, which is one of the lots entered into the upcoming Grass Masters Online Sale on 28 - 30 June.
