BORDERWAY – CARLISLE – CUMBRIA – CA1 2RS
‘A YEAR OF FIRSTS AT BORDERWAY UK DAIRY EXPO’
CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS 2017
PEAK GOLDWYN RHAPSODY – Yasmin Bradbury
Borderway UK Dairy Expo held at Carlisle saw a showcase of firsts for this key annual event. The first time that the same cow has been crowned Champion of Champions more than once, the first year that the show has seen a triple crown winner in any of the breed sections, the first time that a mother and daughter were in the final three of any class, the first time a judge has been invited solely to judge the Champion of Champions, the first time a Dairy Shorthorn as accumulated a double Championship title two years running, the first time that the event has hosted the British Friesian National Show, the first time a mother and daughter Brown Swiss have both received Championship titles and finally, the first time all four home nations have been represented in the Championship line-up.
Carlisle was a hive of activity as thousands of British dairy farmers flocked to the city for this major Dairy exhibition, hosted by Harrison and Hetherington at Borderway Mart on Saturday 11th March. The event highlighted the remarkable quality of dairy cattle in the UK, and the International line-up of judges, and spectators alike, were thrilled with the impressive calibre of entries.
Without question, the star of the show was the mature Holstein, Peak Goldwyn Rhapsody exhibited by Yasmin Bradbury of the Derbyshire based Peak herd. This is the second time that this cow, which is in her sixth lactation, has been awarded the highest accolade at Borderway UK Dairy Expo after being crowned Champion of Champions back in 2014. Her daughter Milliedale Dusk Rhapsody was also awarded third in the mature Holstein class; the first time that mother and daughter have been in the final three in any class at the event.
Another star which must not go unmentioned is Jersey Champion Bluegrass Vindications Harp exhibited by the Fleming family, CJ Henning and K Agnew who now has a hat-trick of Championship titles at Borderway UK Dairy Expo. The five year old cow was also awarded best udder in the Jersey show. Click here for full story…………….
