Holstein lifts overall title at Strathaven

THOSE WHO braved a rainy Strathaven show morning were rewarded with a sunny judging of the champion of champions which saw James Bailey's Holstein taking the top spot.

William Glazebrook awarded Mr Bailey of Over Dalserf, Ashgill the top prize for his second-calver Dalserf Cornelisse 356 which had taken the overall dairy championship earlier.

Reserve champion of champions went to Robert McInnes and Stuart Heads, Aitkenhead Fenwick for their Blackface gimmer, Islay Princess, which took champion of champions at Muirkirk the week before.

Champion beef animal came from John White and sons, Biggar with a Charolais heifer calf.
