GRAHAMS SAMSON SIRED BROCKHURST BOLSHOI WINS THE 2014 ROYAL HIGHLAND LIMOUSIN CHAMPIONSHIP

Progeny by bulls available on Semenstore featured strongly in the high quality 2014 Royal Highland Show Limousin section  securing a number of the leading prizes including the Overall Supreme Championship.  Buckinghamshire-based breeder Doug Mash, Torrington Farm, Grove Lane, Chesham took the day’s top award with his outstanding eight-year-old cow Brockhurst Bolshoi who is sired by Grahams Samson.   A previous Supreme Champion at the Great Yorkshire Show, Brockhurst Bolshoi had already won this year’s Royal Bath & West Limousin Supreme Championship en route to the Highland.

Commenting on his Champion, the judge Ian Callion of the Lodge Herd, Bolfornought Farm, Stirling said: “This is an outstanding animal that is very stylish, correct, very good on her legs, has tremendous quarters, and is his doing her calf well.  In addition, she has great femininity and is a true-to-type Limousin, not extreme in size and full of quality.”  Grahams Samson is available on Semenstore priced at £10 per straw.

Following on from success at the 2014 Royal Ulster Show,  Jalex Itsallgood from James Alexander, Randalstown, Co. Antrim was at it again when picking up the Reserve Junior Male title.  By Swarland Eddie and out of Tyrone Dulani, this May 2013-born bull had placed first in a fantastic class of seventeen young bulls that had sent a buzz around the ringside.  Swarland Eddie is available on Semenstore priced at £20 per straw.

It was an outstanding Royal Highland Limousin debut for Messrs Campbell, Strawfrank Farm, Carstairs Junction, Lanark who placed as Reserve Female Champion to the Overall Supreme with their March 2011-born Strawfrank Gina.  From the establishing Strawfrank herd, now comprising of 25 females, Strawfrank Gina is actually the first pedigree Limousin calf to be registered by the Campbells.  This first-calved heifer, by Ampertaine Bravo and out of Marlepark Celia, was shown with her Vagabond-sired heifer calf at foot, Strawfrank Jena.  Ampertaine Bravo is available on Semenstore priced at £20 per straw.

Glenrock Illusion from Stephen Illingworth, Howgillside, Eaglesfield, Lockerbie picked up the Junior Female Championship before moving on to win the Overall Junior title, a first for the herd.  This stylish January 2013-born heifer is by the prolific Goldies Comet and is out of the herd’s noted cow Glenrock Spangle who was also the mother of Glenrock Fantastic, the 2013 Reserve Champion at the Highland Show.  On the Saturday, Glenrock Illusion, who was described by Stephen Illingworth as ‘a once in a lifetime heifer and perhaps the best I’ve ever bred’, placed Reserve Overall in the Junior Interbreed judged by Bob Adam, Newhouse of Glamis, Forfar.  Goldies Comet is available on Semenstore priced at £20 per straw.

Placing Reserve Junior Female and Overall Junior Reserve was Emslies Ieryl from Aileen Ritchie, Tamara, Burnside, Whitecairns, Aberdeen.  This April 2013-born heifer had come out of the first class of the day and up against a class of thirteen heifers born on or after 1st April 2013.  Emslies Ieryl is by Procters Cavalier and is out of Emslies Eryl.  Bred by Harry Emslie, this heifer was purchased at the Emslies Production Sale held in January this year at Carlisle for 15,000gns.  Procters Cavalier is available on Semenstore priced at £25 per straw.
