Midnight Star, a three-way owned black Limousin cross heifer continued on her winning ways at the recent Countryside Live, winning not only the heifer championship but also the supreme overall.

The event staged in Harrogate, saw Mark and Sarah Harryman and Trevor Warriner's home-bred heifer win the big one after taking the commercial championship at the Great Yorkshire in July and the same award at Ryedale.

Judge Wilson Peters Crieff, found his reserve supreme in Phil and Sharon Sellers' Fancy That, another Limousin cross heifer. It was bred by Frank Page and bought privately at Ashby Show.

Topping the steers was Katrina Donaldson and James Little's Midnight, a 602kg Limousin-sired entry from Ireby. Bred by John McAllister, Wester Thomaston, it was bought at Caledonian Marts, Stirling for £1400 from Brian Harper and was another winner at the Great Yorkshire.

Just pipped at the post amongst the bullocks, Penrith-based Neil Slack produced the runner-up with the home-bred British Blue cross, Mo Salah.

Flying the flag for the Scots, Jennifer Hyslop from Barrhill, Girvan, won two of the three baby beef classes to include the overall championship with the home-bred Dancing Queen, a daughter of the Limousin sire Waindale UFO, which also bred her second first prize winner, Queen of Hearts.

Reserve baby beef was Jaer Bomb, another by the same sire from John Smith-Jackson, Haltwhistle.

Judge Robert Osborne, Dumfriesshire, had his work cut out for him selecting the top winners in the sheep lines too, with the supreme eventually going to a pair of pure Beltex from Hannah Brown, Leyburn, who also won the shortwool championship with a pair of Suffolk crosses. Her champion winners, by Hallcrake Buccaneer, weighed in at 42kg.

Three-quarter Beltex from J Hall and Son, Dalston, weighing 39.5kg scooped the reserve overall.
