Rull Aberdeen-Angus Herd Clinches Calf Show Title

With nearly 60 calves entered and quality throughout it’s safe to say the Southern England Calf Show for 2013 was another success.

Stepping up to the mark after the original planned judged took ill, was Colin Hutchings, Dulverton, Somerset. There aren’t many major shows that he hasn’t judged, so he was well up to the challenge of the Calf Show.

Champion calf at the Southern England Calf Show was Rull Eon N150 from Ed and Claire Jones, Collumpton, Devon, with Ian Dowlman at the halter.

It was certainly a day for the South West Club with the overall championship, male, reserve male and female champions staying in the area. Taking the top spot was Rull Eon N150 from Ed and Claire Jones, Cullompton. Described by the judge as a well balanced, stylish animal which attracts attention when he enters the ring, this February-born bull calf has already made headlines this month with his mother winning the futurity and overall female championship at the Winter National Show at Carlisle. Brought out by 2013 YDP winner Ian Dowlman, Eon is sired by Blelack Blacksmith and his dam, Rull Evita L127 boasts a pedigree full of famous sires and goes back to Netherton Evita on the female side.

Reserve champion honours went to the female champion Temple Neonia N555 from Andrew and Judith Denning, Bridgwater. Winning the red ticket in the extremely strong January/February heifer class, Mr Hutchings said this winner was longer and stronger than the other heifers and fuller in the hind quarter. Neonia is sired by Lockerley Legolas G850, stock bull at Idvies and Rawburn and out of Muirhall Top Deal E006 daughter and a favourite of the Denning’s youngest daughter Grace.

Andrew and Judith Denning’s Temple Neonia N555 took the female and reserve overall championship.

The reserve male championship went to a young bull calf from Andrew and Judith Denning’s daughter Jess. The Park Wall herd may only number three cows, but managed to secure a first in the baby bull class and second in the Jan/Feb heifer class. April-born Park Wall Jethro Eric N564 is by the Rawburn Transformer sired bull Temple Full Loaded L506 and out of Kingsbrompton Jacata Erica G558.

Reserve in the female lines went to Inkpen Pretty Pansy N158 from Jessica Kary, Hungerford. Brought out by freelance stockman Keith Jempson, this March-born heifer is sired by the home bred bull Inkpen Elroy K099 and out of a Nightingale bred dam.

The long journey was made worthwhile for South East Club Secretary Mike Spooner and his wife Jennie when they won two of the five bull classes. Both March-born and both sired by Nightingale Ploughman. Kingwood Editor N097 is out of a Bramley Grange Black Brindley D064 sired dam and Kingwood William N098 is out of a Netherton Figo C244 sired dam.

The first red ticket of the day was won by Hereford-based P P and J E Symonds in the Sept-Dec 2012-born bull class. Newgrove Enoch M560 is an October-born son of Aynho Rossiter Eric B125 and out of a Wedderlie bred dam.

The Sept-Dec 2012 heifer class was won by another stylish heifer Eckington Jessica Erica M182 from Judy Gardner, Worcestershire. Born in September she is sired by Rawburn Edge J893 and out of a home bred cow by Warrenho Rob.

Winning the red ticket in the baby heifer class was South West Club Secretary Gayle Bersey with an April-born Idvies Euris B112 daughter, Lynher Valley Encore Aurora N068. Gayle also had the best steer with an end of April born Gerester of Haymount calf.

The junior handler classes were as always a great watch and the under 14’s did so well that the judge couldn’t split them giving joint first to Grace Denning and Jo Harding. In the 15-21’s class Abbey Batch from Lockerley fought off stiff competition to win first prize.
