Cattle on the Move!!
« on: January 06, 2012, 19:17 »
December was a busy month; our limousin x, charolais and sussex steers went at the start of the month at the fatstock show and sale ending our show season. We also had our two heifers calve with two big bull calves looking good to show or fatten hopefully  :) and also to start this year's show team, we have two blonde heifers arriving tommorow afternoon, giving a hard job training them for the next couple of weeks!!! We have a team of 10 show cattle this year and better than ever, will anyone else be showing this year??

Wow, impressive!
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Haha, thanks  :D unfortuantely, out of the 10 show cattle, we will only actually own 2 cattle because, all the dairy heifers are brought on site just before the shows, and we are loaning the 2 blonde and sussex heifers which is a shame but the club is not financially capable of buying and feeding this amount of cattle

Not sure if I`ll be doing any showing this year, but done a bit over the last 40 or so years.

This was my last outing in July 2010, helping my son show two of his holsteins at the Mid Devon Show. He came away with a first, a second and reserve breed champion.

I`m left handed, what`s your excuse?

What a coincedence!! the man on the far right of the picture, is the farmer of Curscombe Holsteins, who i have worked for in the summer and helped show before as well, and i'm good friends with his daughter as well. And not bad your son's results haha, they must be superb holsteins then?

Colin and I were just debating why the heifer he is holding was breed champion over ours and the consensus was that the judge being female may have had something to do with it. (No I jest, she got it right.)

He didn`t last year as he changed jobs, but he`s now only half a mile from the Mid Devon showground, and it`s a case of the right cows looking right at show times. But he`s keen to as he has his own cows kept alongside his boss`s herd, and as long as they can stay TB free of course.

More pics from 2010:
