A QUALITY line-up of dairy cattle at LiveScot saw the overall title go to Jimmy Baillie and his sons, James and Gavin, Over Dalserf, Ashgill.

Taking the silverware when picked out by judge, Jamie Lawrie, Cuthill Towers, Milnathort, was Dalserf Demon Corneliske 442, a Wintersell Demon daughter bred from a long-established family line in the 250-cow herd. This third calver started her latest lactation in April and has already given 10,000kg, coming after finishing a 13,000kg second lactation, so she’s no slouch in the parlour either.

She was ahead of the June-calved heifer in milk, Blythbridge Alligator Alice, a VG87 daughter of Stantons Alligator shown by the Laird family, from Blythbridge, West Linton, Peebles. Another star at filling the bulk tank, she’s projected to 11,000kg this lactation and was making her show debut.

The Lairds also won the young cow in milk class with the four-year-old Blythwood Atwood Primrose, a VG88 (3yr) by Maple-Downs IGW Atwood.
