Limousin Society 50th Anniversary Show

Borderway, Rosehill, Carlisle, CA1 2RS

Champions to the Fore at Limousin Society’s 50th Anniversary Show

In a week of celebrations of the Limousin Society’s 50th Anniversary, all descended on H&H Borderway mart for two days of spectacular commercial and pedigree shows on 29th and 30th July 2022.

In the pedigree section, it was Upperffrydd Power who literally powered through to the Overall Pedigree Championship. In the run up to the event there had been increasing speculation whether this three-year old bull would lift the title, having already claimed championships at the Royal Welsh and Great Yorkshire Shows this season.     Brought out to perfection by owner Thor Atkinson and his team of the Arradfoot pedigree herd, Power was bred by Tomos Evans of the Upperffrydd herd in Powys and sold to Mr Atkinson for 3000gns in Carlisle in October 2020.   He is sired by the record-breaking price Trueman Jagger, who won the last National Show in 2016, and out of the noted Foxhillfarm Joslyn.

Claiming the Overall Commercial Championship was Limousin-bred heifer Maggie.  A March 2021-born calf by noted sire Trueman Idol, she was bred and brought out by B&L Wilkinson, Ivy Farm, Leyburn, North Yorks. 

Judges on each day were Jim Quail from Northern Ireland (commercial heifers), Louise Forsyth from Scotland (commercial steers), Christian Laloi from France (pedigree females) and Paul Sykes from Ireland (pedigree males).
