Wilson Peters' CC Cindy, a 22-month-old home-bred Limousin cross heifer landed another section supreme and a second overall champion of champions at a sunny Doune and Dunblane Show.

His black heifer from Cuilt Farmhouse, Monzie, Crieff, is by the stock bull Carmorn Lionbar and out of a British Blue cross cow. Champion of champions at Alyth Show, she was also reserve inter-breed beef at West Fife and Angus and section champion at Fife.

Inter-breed beef judge and overall champion of champions judge, Iain Millar, Lochend, said she was an easy winner with meat in all the right places.

He was also most impressed by his choice of reserve overall, Fordelhill Limelight, the Clydesdale horse champion from Scott Greenhill, Leuchars, which is equally well known. This four-year-old mare by Glebeview Sir Charles, out of Fordelhill Heather Mairi was champion at the Great Yorkshire Show champion in 2022 and last year stood champion at Banchory, Braco and Kinross. She was paraded with her seven-week-old filly foal at foot and fresh from winning the heavy horse honours at Haddington the previous week.

Supreme sheep was the champion Suffolk from Robert Bryce, Chalmerston, Stirling. His home-bred two-crop ewe which also took the breed honours at Gargunnock, is by Strathview Hashtag and out of a Sunnyhills X Factor-sired ewe.

Chalmerston also won the reserve inter-breed group of three with the supreme group won by a trio of Beltex from the Mortons of Lochend, Denny – for the fourth year on the trot.

Winning the inter-breed pairs amongst the cattle was a commercial duo from Andrew and Christa Dunn and son Andrew, Redhall. Their top two was made up of the reserve section champion, a home-bred Limousin cross stot and a Pitcairn-bred heifer bought out at Islay.
