STEPHANIE Dick, Mains of Throsk, Stirling, came up trumps in a strong Aberdeen-Angus section when she scooped the top award in the seniors, before going on to stand reserve native senior. 
This was with Crew Lady Jasmine S247, a July, 2016-born heifer by Netherton Fabulous Cruz, out of Cregga Judy. Purchased at Stirling in February to join her Stephick herd, Lady Jasmine stood breed champion at Braco and reserve at Gargunnock. 
Reserve was the male champion, Tonley Emmerson from father and son team, Neil and Mark Wattie, Mains of Tonley, Alford, who were returning to this show ring after a couple years out. 
Emmerson is a 16-month-old son of Tonley Anelka on his first outing and is out of Tonley Equidora J661 which has bred bulls to 6800gns and 4000gns. 
The Watties also saw Tonley Equidora T362, a March-born heifer calf made overall  junior champion before going on to stand champion native junior. Achieving a personal best for the herd since the show has moved from Forfar to Stirling, was one of the first calves by Weeton Evolution, out of Tonley Equidora P105. 
Runner up in the juniors was Mrs Hannah Heerema’s six-month-old bull calf, Balavilhouse Banksky, from Balavil Estate, Kingussie. Brought out by Robert Marshall , this son of Blelack Vice Consol is out of Blelack Blaeberry, which stood first at Agri-Expo.
