Well, two very wet shows on Wednesday, Gillingham and Shaftesbury and then today, Dunster. N Lomu did the business both days, Breed Ch and then Reserve Interbreed to Nick Hill & Lisa Hill ‘s lovely cow and calf. He showed his socks off both days in pouring rain, both Interbreed judges kindly complimented us on the bull’s great mobility so he has just one more show left before retirement beckons!
And because you’re sometimes just desperate to win... here’s Phil and N Moira taking to the Jersey/Holstein ring to get judge Dave Chave’s opinion....
Can’t recommend this skilled craftsman highly enough (he’s our farrier, known him forever!). Makes both hunting and professional cook’s knives to order. Great Christmas or Birthday presents for someone who is difficult t buy for ! Definitely order now if you’re thinking about Christmas.
We are appealing for information following a robbery which took place at the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show on Tuesday, July 23.
Between 11pm and midnight, an elderly man used the toilets of the campsite at Lower North 12, which is near entrance F, located at the far end of the showground near the cattle sheds.
On leaving the toilets, he reports being punched to the face and having items stolen.
He was found in hedgerow behind the toilets the following day. He sustained minor injuries and is recovering.
Police are continuing to investigate, and would like to speak to anyone who saw or heard anything between 11pm and midnight on Tuesday, July 23. As a point of reference to anyone who was at the show, it was the night of the thunderstorm.
If you have any information that could help, please contact police either online at: http://bit.ly/DPPReportOnline, by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 101. If you are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired text the non-emergency number on 07811 311 908. Quote reference: DPP/2166/24/07/2019/02/C
18 years old and just coming up 18 months, Uvita and her ET daughter, Nuvita this morning in their working clothes. Uvi doesn’t particularly breed show winners but boy, is she ever what anyone in racing would call a Blue Hen producer !
Dam of several AI studs bulls, her late daughter Halo has bulls on stud for Genus, another, Lilibet, has now contract flushed twice for Genus and once for ourselves, so watch out for her sons - we have some NewPole Icon’s here and they’re are looking great.
Nuvita, by Tilouis d’Atrive, is a natural born daughter, her brother is on stud in Ireland and we will be flushing her to some pretty special white bulls later this year.
