Keith Show 2015
Yet again we were blessed with a lovely sunny day for our last summer show, Keith, which was a great success after last year’s cancellation due to the wet weather.
The Scottish Beef Supreme Cattle Championship (where any beef cattle that have previously won a breed championship at any show in Scotland are invited along for a grand finale) took place following the show’s own interbreed competition. Cattle are judged in three categories – Native, Continental and Commercial – and then compete for the overall title of Scottish Cattle Champion 2015.
It was the commercial champion Lady Moo Moo, from Blair Dufton which lifted the overall award. She was previously commercial champion at Angus, Banchory, New Deer, Tarland and Fettercairn shows this summer. Purchased at the Thainstone Spectacular last September from Grant Morrison, Newtack, Keith, she is by the Limousin sire Haltcliffe Donny and out of a Limousin cross cow bred by Gordon Carol.
In reserve position were Dougie MacBeath and Sarah Jane Jessop with their Limousin heifer Poolehall Iris. This two-year-old daughter of Haltcliffe Ben and Wilodge Flawless was purchased at the Red Ladies sale at Carlisle in December. She won the National Limousin Grand Prix and went on to win the overall champion of champions at Turriff Show, as well as plenty other red tickets at various shows this year. We never managed to get a stood picture of her at the show but we are taking one of her at home in the coming days.
