Young Reece and Andrew Simmers, Backmuir, Keith, enjoyed a cracking day at Turriff Show on Monday, winning not only their first Simmental championship but also the supreme beef honours, and overall champion of champions accolade.

The two brothers who own the newly established Backmuir Simmental herd comprising 40 females, went straight to the top with the February 2017-born heifer, Sterling FCUK Impuls. A daughter of Sterling Gino, she was bought at the bull sales at Stirling in February after standing pre-sale champion for Jimmy McMillan.

"The Simmental is an outstanding animal with a dead-straight back, a leg in each corner and she could walk. She also has a tremendous temperament and a good head," said the overall champion of champions judge, Mrs Hazel England, Perth, a retired beef, sheep, arable and equestrian farmer.

Backing up these statements, the inter-breed beef judge, Gerald Smith, Laurencekirk said: "She is a tremendous heifer with plenty of character, length, and very good legs. She was an easy winner with the commercial champion a very clear second."

No stranger to the show ring, Sterling FCUK Impuls was a big winner last year standing reserve female at the Royal Welsh and the English National and since the boys' bought her, has secured the female championship and reserve overall at the Highland and the Scottish National at the Border Union.

Adding to the celebrations, the heifer which was paraded in calf to Islavale Gambler, teamed up with Michael Durno's rising two-year-old bull, Auchorachan Impeccable, a Team Fergus son from Auchorachan, to lift the inter-breed pairs title, judged by Anne Macpherson.

It was another good day for Aberdeenshire's top show calf duo, Blair Duffton and Rebecca Stuart, too when they bagged another commercial championship and reserve overall beef title with their Limousin cross heifer, I'll Be There. Winning her fifth championship to add to the reserve or overall beef championship titles also scooped from five shows, this 14-month-old is by the AI sire, Lorenzo and was bought at the Aberdeen Spring Show in February for £4600 from the Robertsons at Fodderletter after standing pre-sale champion.

Blair and Rebecca were back in the tickets winning the inter-breed group of three title with commercial calves, while a trio of Limousins from Fodderletter, lifted the reserve.

Beef Shorthorns made their mark in the inter-breed pairs too, taking the runner-up ticket. This duo was made up of the Green's champion, Coldrochie Broadhooks, a heifer bought at the dispersal, for the family's new pedigree beef enterprise at Corskie, and the reserve, the Mair's Muiresk Lord Mair, a rising two-year-old bull by Alvie Galaxy.

Anne Macpherson, also judged the inter-breed young bulls and found her champion in Neil and Mark Wattie's Aberdeen-Angus, Tonley Excel, a previously unshown son of Nightingale Perry, which was followed by the Limousin best, Corsairtly Oswald, from Richard and Kathleen Davidson.

It was a case of beginners luck amongst the sheep for Robert Cockburn and Diane Woo too, when they won the Texel championship, supreme sheep and reserve overall champion of champions for their first visit to Turriff. The couple, who are well accustomed to winning inter-breed championships further south with entries from their Knap flock from Hill of Errol, Perth, led this year's cracking entry of sheep with a home-bred one-crop ewe. Champion at the Scottish National at Stirling last year and first at Lesmahagow the same year, she is by Clinterty Yuga Khan.

"The Texel showed that bit more character than the rest which is what you want to see in any animal. As well as being a physically correct all through, she had that extra style," said the inter-breed sheep judge, Iain Campbell, Glenrath, who found his reserve supreme in the lead Blackface.

This was a ewe from Neil and Stuart Barclay's Harestone flock from Insch, managed by Robert Marshall. Bred from a Connachan female, she is by a Connachan-bred son of a £5200 Nunnerie retained for breeding.

Percy Tait's Knighton Rouge flock all the way from Worcester also came up with the goods, winning the inter-breed pairs with a home-bred shearling and gimmer. The duo, shown by flockmaster Will Price, were being shown alongside Mr Tait's Bleu Du Maines for the breed's National Show at Turriff, which also saw the duo land the reserve breed championship.
