Royal Highland Show 2014

Champion: Screel Erin 3

Champion: Screel Erin 3

Screel takes the lead in the Royal Highland Show championship

19th/22nd June 2014 | Judge: David Winnington, Stafford

Taking the overall championship at the Royal Highland Show today under judge David Winnington from Stafford was Samantha Wilson, Auchencairn, Castle Douglas, with her heifer in-milk Screel Erin 3 who also came through as the junior champion.

This May 2011-born Breckney Gregory daughter is fresh calved and was first as a maiden heifer and second as an in-calf heifer here the past two years.

This is the first time the Wilson family, who no longer milk cows but sell everything as freshly calved, has won the championship at the Highland since the 90’s.

Standing reserve overall champion was Adam Lawson’s senior cow and Ex90 classified Lisnamulligan Whitetail 2nd. This fourth lactation Meadowhaven Pride’s Star daughter is two months fresh giving 40 litres a day. She was reserve champion here as a heifer in milk, first as a maiden and in-calf heifer and honourable mention in 2013. Her dam is the Ex91 scored Amber Whitetail 16.

Meanwhile, securing the honourable mention was John and Joe Teasdale’s Brafell Molly 6th, a second calved Kirkbryde Royal Event daughter.  

In the junior championship it was Samantha Wilson’s second prize milking heifer Screel Jewel that stood reserve. She is a Marleycote Thunder daughter shown one month fresh and giving 28kg a day.

And further continuing her winning form, Samantha Wilson also won the best pair with her champion Screel Erin 3 and reserve junior champion Screel Jewel.
