Calf Show 2011
The Fleming Family from Seaforde dominated the prize list
in the Jersey section at the 9th annual multi-breed calf show,
held at the Pedigree Sales Arena, Moira.
Brothers Lindsay and Lyndon Fleming claimed the champion and
reserve showmanship awards, while the family’s senior
calf walked off with the supreme overall championship ribbons.
Ailsa Fleming won the junior showmanship class, while her
cousin, Amber Sloan, secured first prize in the novice showmanship
Jersey judge, Louise Graham, from Moira, praised the Fleming
boys for their handling skills. “They are both very capable
and always in control of their calves. The overall winner had
a slight advantage over the reserve.”
In the calf section the supreme championship ribbons went
to the January 2010 born Potterswalls Minister Poppy. She was
sired by Select-Scott Minister, and her dam is the home-bred
Potterswalls Jazzman Poppy.
“The overall champion is a well balanced calf which
was very stylish on parade. She is powerful and has great openness
of rib,” explained Louise Graham, who runs the 3-cow
Brookvale Jersey herd, and 40-cow Moyrah Holstein herd in partnership
with her husband Richard.
The reserve championship award went to Clandeboye Estates,
Bangor, for the October 2010 born Clandeboye Action Mabel.
This Forest Glen Avery Action daughter is bred from Clandeboye
Remake Mabel. “The runner-up is another very nice calf.”
Ulster Jersey Cattle Club chairman, Daniel Brady, thanked
Louise Graham for giving up her time to place the entries at
the annual calf show. “Thanks also to our valued sponsors,
United Feeds who sponsored the calf section; and Ulster Bank
who sponsored the showmanship section.”
