Politician elected as the best once again

One of the most promising young bulls in the Aberdeen-Angus breed capped a successful showring career on Saturday by winning the yearling bull championship at the Black Beauty Bonanza show of Aberdeen-Angus calves and yearlings at Aberdeen and Northern Marts' Thainstone Centre.

The 19-month-old Logie Politician L137, owned by Bill Bruce, and paraded by stockman, Andrew Reid, was bull calf champion at the show last year and took the junior bull, reserve junior and reserve male championships at the Royal Highland Show in June.

He is one of the first crop of calves by the 25,000gns Blelack Lord Hildago H972 and is destined for next February's Stirling sale.

Taking the bull calf championship was Greame Massie's Blelack Jubilant Eric M908 with Auchincreive Etna M526 from Charles McCombie the best of the heifer calves. Among the yearling heifers it was Tonley Annie L772 from Neil Wattie which stood to the fore.
