NI Beef Shorthorn breeders excel at Calf Show

A super entry of calves was presented to judge Bill Landers, Scotland, at the NI Beef Shorthorn Breeders’ Calf Show held recently at Dungannon Mart.

William and Jill McAllister, Kells, had a first class outing with calves from their Burnside herd securing the Overall Championship with their stylish November 2020 born entry ‘Burnside Palo’. Sired by their stock bull Lightning of Skaillhouse, this young prospect drew many favourable comments on the day.

In the reserve spot was first time exhibitor Leanne Green with ‘Derriaghy Lovely Priscilla’. With Uppermill breeding on both sides of her pedigree, this October 2020 red heifer caught the eye of many.

The reserve male championship was awarded to George and William Gott with their son of Hussar of Upsall, ‘Shankhill Ronaldo’. Claiming the reserve female position was a daughter of Creaga Logic, ‘Aghalee Rhona’, brought out by Aaron and Graham Duncan.

Leading the way in the best pair from one exhibitor section was George and William Gott, followed by William and Jill McAllister.

It was lovely to see so many breeders out in force at this year’s calf show, which was held in conjunction with the NI Hereford Breeders’ Club.

One of the most popular classes is the young handlers’ category, which was won by Charlotte McAllister, with Jenson Lindsay in reserve spot.

Judge for the day was Bill Landers, Cairnsmore. It was a delight to have Bill and his wife Jane over at the calf show.

The NI Beef Shorthorn Club is indebted to a number of sponsors that kindly supported this event, including: Beef Shorthorn Cattle Society, Crudden Dolan Accountants, R A McClung & Co Ltd, Croobview Farm Meats, Cooper Shorthorns, Annaghnoon Shorthorns, Barry & Frances Fitzsimmons and Annahill Shorthorns. Thanks also to Dungannon Mart, Kathryn Shaw, Agriimages and all those who exhibited and attended.
