- Pure bred Limousin wins Commercial Championship
- Limousin sired animals take Champion & Reserve in the Baby Beef
- Foxhillfarm Lionking wins all-breeds Pedigree Championship
Well known showman Phil Sellers from Lincolnshire, made his first visit to Beef South West a winning one taking the primestock championship with his Limousin heifer Here Comes Trouble. The 2015 Beef South West event was held on November 11th in Exeter.
The Champion animal, a July 2014-born pure-bred Limousin heifer, was bought at the Ruthin Show Potential sale in February from the breeder, D.H. Lloyd, Newtown. This year it has already been champion at Ashbourne and a winner at the Nottinghamshire County and Countryside Live events respectively.
The judge for the day, Phil Price, Hereford, said his Champion was: “just what I was looking for being very stylish, full of meat and good on her legs.”
Taking the Baby Beef Championship was Denis The Menace, a home-bred January-born Limousin cross steer from Darrell and Sarah Cheaker, Pilning, Bristol. Making his show ring debut was Connor Pengelly, Cullompton, who took the Reserve Championship with Millie, a March-born Limousin-cross heifer which he had bought locally in August.
In the pedigree section the Calf Championship went to Foxhillfarm Lionking from Michael & Melanie Aford, Foxhill Farm, Cullompton, Devon. This January-born bull is an embryo calf by Ionesco out of the prolific Bankdale Alice.
