Another regular show attendee,  Jim and Selina Ross and Family, Romesbeoch, Shawhead, Dumfries secured the reserve female rosette with Moira 1926 of Romesbeoch,  this incalf cow who is due in November is by  the German sire, Holsten Oder and out of Moira 408 of Romesbeoch, a previous reserve champion at Dumfries Show. 

It was Kilnstown’s breeding that secured the reserve male title, Welling of Kilnstown who was purchased privately in 2016 by Jason and Sarah Wareham, Heathfield, East Sussex,  this four year old bull is a son of Coldplay of Fingland and our to Marina 67th of Kilnstown.  Another regular on the show circuit, Welling has been interbreed champion at Heathfield show earlier in the year. 

Lockerbie breeders David and Rosemarie Cornthwaite, Balagray was also in the rosettes as they received the junior championship and the group prize.   The junior prize was received by their yearling bull Oka of Balgray, a son of Troloss Impeccable who is jointly owned with Alan McClymont, Kirkstead and out of the home bred Exocet of Balgray.   The group of three - Neave U of Over Barskeoch,  Ogilvy of Balgray, Oka of Balgray received the The Reid- Walker Perpetual Challenge bowl.
