Royal Three Counties Show

It was a successful weekend for Traditional Hereford breeders exhibiting at the Royal Three Counties Show on Sunday 18th June, as classes got underway in the National Rare & Minority Breeds Show.

Taking the Interbreed Cattle Championship under judge Mrs F Wise, Berkshire, was the Traditional Hereford Breed Champion Albany Sailor from F W Cook & Son, Cambridge. This two-year-old bull also teamed up with the Reserve Breed Champion, in-calf heifer Carpenters Curly 18th exhibited by The Elms School, Colwall, to take the reserve spot in the hotly contested Interbreed Cattle Pairs Competition.

This pairing was decided by results from the breed classes judged earlier in the day by Mr Dean Whybrow, Letchworth, who selected his champions from a strong lineup put forward by eight exhibitors, all of which are to be congratulated on bringing out their cattle and supporting the show.

Members also worked hard to attend to the THBC trade stand, chatting to potential purchasers and announcing the release of the catalogue for the forthcoming Grass Masters Online Sale of Traditional Hereford cattle and embryos, which runs from 7th - 9th June 2023. We are extremely grateful to all of our exhibitors and young handlers for their enthusiasm in presenting a wonderful show of cattle, and we look forward to attending again next year on Sunday 16th June 2024.
