Concluding a rather wet day’s judging here at Peterborough, the English National Simmental Show championship has gone the way of Boddington Estates with their female champion Stirling Krumpets Britney, an ET-bred Sterling Flint daughter out of Sterling Hawaii’s Krumpet and she has carried on her fantastic form from earlier in the show season when she stood interbreed champion at Devon County Show.
Taking the reserve title having just been tapped out as overall male champion was Clonagh World Class, the Irish bred Kilbride Farm Newry son from the Borlase family. This one was bred in Garrett Behan’s herd and was part of the winning Burke Trophy pair at last week’s Royal Nofolk Show.
It was a repeat of the male junior championships for the overall championships with Beetley Cooperman, a Cairnview Snazzy son out of Beetley Wisteria from Abram Farms taking the top spot, while the reserve junior male spot went to the Hind family with Ravensdale Chopper, a Heathbrow Wizard son.
Winning the pairs class was the Borlase family with their Burke Trophy pair, Clonagh World Class and Perrywood Wispa with her World Class-sired heifer claf at foot, while the group of three class also went to the Borlase family.
Pictures to follow shortly…..
