Galloway cross heifer tops suckled calf show and sale

Overall Champion

Borderway Annual Autumn Suckled Calf Show and Sale

23rd September 2017

The annual autumn suckled calf show and sale at Carlisle was held on Saturday 23rd September and attracted a catalogue entry of 756 head. This event was very kindly sponsored by Capontree Vets, David Allen (accountants), Sure Calf (Zoetis) and Border Cars. The pre-sale judging was ably carried out by renowned showman and cattle finisher Mr W Timm of Barlow.

The overall championship rosette went to a truly outstanding Galloway cross heifer consigned by Messrs Telfer & Claxton of Newton High House, Stocksfield. She was sired by the registered Galloway bull Glenkiln Dynamite and was out of a pure Limousin cow by Rainbow Simon. This stylish heifer is sure to feature in the forthcoming autumn/winter shows and after spirited bidding she was sold for the days top price of £3500 to the judge Mr Timm.
