Straiton Show Results

10th June 2017

Judge: Ian Findlay, Blackcraigs Farm, Corsock, Castle Douglas.

Straiton Show was held on the 10th of June and once again was a great day out for all who attended. Weather started off drizzly but soon was typical sunny Straiton show weather. Great friendly atmosphere and superb home baking from the local farmers wives.

Congratulations to Zan Kirk who won the Championship with her lovely heifer Huntfield Sage. This in calf heifer was bred by Zan and Joe Kirk from the Huntfield Herd, Lowkirkbride, Auldgirth, Dumfries. She was a tremendous character heifer and showed real Belted Galloway type. She was born in October 2014 and is by the homebred bull Huntfield Optimist out of Huntfield Panoply. Huntfield Tamara sired by the AI bull Southfield Major Ronaldo won the junior heifer class, another lovely heifer. Two new Tobergill calves Uist and Usha, sired by Shelsleys Dallas were at their first show and took part in the calf class and also in the young handler class.

The young handler class had 4 exhibitors, 3 leading Tobergill Belties and Calum Cook leading a Black Galloway heifer. They all did really well and Abbie Montgomeries was second followed closely by Mollie and Daisy Keily.
