First Ever National All Breeds Show Welcomed by the Industry

Last week’s National All Breeds Show came to a fitting finale when the prestigious interbreed Dairy Burke Trophy was judged after the completion of the breed classes.

This was the first ever ‘all breeds’ show for organisers, Holstein UK, and high numbers of cattle entries firmly cemented the occasion as the premier event for dairy cattle exhibits in the annual showing calendar.

The coveted Burke Trophy - formerly awarded at the Royal Show – was the icing on the cake and remained in the hands of the Holstein breed, who also won the Burke at the last Royal Show in 2009.

Fending off strong competition from the other six groups from the Jersey, Guernsey, Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Red and White and Dairy Shorthorn breeds, the triumphant Holsteins were breed champion, Berryholme Shottle Flo and intermediate champion, Smiddiehill Durm Ashlyn. Flo is owned by David Wright and his parents Francis and Anne from near Kendall inCumbria and Ashlyn comes from Cheshire-based Mark Nutsford and his father-in-law, Bill Nadin, Derbs. Both were young cows in their second lactations, the champion sired by UK-bred Picston Shottle and her partner by Regancrest Elton Durham.

Dairy Shorthorn breeder and interbreed judge, Seimon Thomas from Pembrokeshire said the Holstein pair were by far the best example of their breed.

Breed championships also went to D & C Sanderson’s Middle Emerald Mr (Ayrshire); J Lochhead’s Kedar Becks Alice (Brown Swiss); N Madeley’s Nejay Erin 2 (Dairy Shorthorn); Evans & Sales Partnership’s Bickfield Rainbow 51 (Guernsey); and D P Manning & Co’s Ellerdine Easton Crystal 2 (Jersey).

Commenting on the event, whose forerunner was the successful National Holstein Show, John Cochrane from the Ayrshire Cattle Society said: “We were extremely happy to be taking part in an event at which there were so many people interested in cows. It gave us a great shop window for the Ayrshire breed and was thoroughly enjoyed by the cattle exhibitors.”
