A superior quality show of livestock, saw the inter-breed sheep honours and supreme overall presented to a Suffolk gimmer from Stewart Lathangie, Pyeston, at a glorious Fife Show

Taking all the plaudits when selected supreme overall by the various inter-breed judges on a points basis, was a previously unshown home-bred gimmer by Limestone Marksman bred from a ewe by Limestone Limited Edition.

It was a day to remember for Beth Thomson and her father John, too, when they bagged the Limousin honours and the supreme beef title with the 27-month-old heifer, Beath Tianna, from Hilton of Beath, Kelty. Reserve inter-breed here last year, she is sired by Bangtidy Notorious and out of Homebyres Tilly

There was also a roll-over win in the dairy lines, when Billincoat Secretariat Veronese, a third calved Holstein in milk from the Wilsons, Carskerdo, Cupar, won the the inter-breed dairy title for the second year in succession. Calved in December and giving 53litres per day, this Ex93-3-classified cow was also champion of champions at West Fife and inter-breed dairy at Kinross.

Wilson Peters' commercial champion from Cuilt, Gilmerton, Crieff was also out for the overall champion of champions. This was the Limousin cross heifer CC Cindy, a 20-month-old daughter of Carmorn Lionbar that was reserve at Ayr and also picked up several awards last year.

Supreme horse was the Connemara steel grey stallion, Craigmancie Lockdown, a four-year-old from Aberdeen-based Ashley Watson-Anderson. Supreme in hand at the NSW PCA in Wales last year, this lightly shown youngster is by Lonsdale Legend and out of Blairmore Willow.
