Kevin Watret again ruled supreme among the senior classes in the British Blue ring with his female and male victors going on to be crowned overall senior and reserve champions, respectfully.

Solway View Perfect certainly lived up to her name as she ticked all the boxes for judge, Jonty Bellas, when adding to Kevin's ever growing rosette board and landing the female title, overall honours and the continental senior championship.

Bred out of one of the best females in the herd, Solway View Katie – which had produced sons to 15,000gns and 12,000gns – this October, 2020-born heifer was an AI daughter of Dodou de St Remacle. It won't be the last we see of her as Kevin and the team will be parading her in the ring at LiveScot, at Lanark.

Adding to the celebrations, Kevin's male champion and reserve overall victor came in the form of Solway View Pluto. On his first outing, this September, 2020-born AI son of Bedgebury Kent was out of Solway View Nemo – which stood champion at the 2018 January calf show, held at Carlisle. Pluto will also be heading to Lanark, as well as the English Winter Fair on November 20 and 21 and will be forward for sale in May, 2022.
