Great Yorkshire Show Champion: Churchroyd Gwen 8, by Marleycote Maverick from Ian Collins

The Collins family from Dewsbury cleaned up in the overall championship at this year's Great Yorkshire Show.

8th - 10th July 2014 | Judge: Matt Hayward

Judge Matt Hayward from the Tuxford herd, Newark, tapped out Churchroyd Gwen 8 as overall champion having come through as the senior class and production and inspection class winner. She was reserve overall champion at the National Show held at Cheshire last month and stood first junior cow at the South West Dairy Show 2010.

Classified Ex90, this fourth lactation Marleycote Maverick daughter calved in November, is still giving 35 litres and in her last lactation gave 14,967kg at 3.25%bf and 3.37%p. She is back in-calf to Lemon Grove Belagio and is out of the VG87 scored Hooton Fair Measure daughter Churchroyd Gwen 5.

Matt Hayward commented, “The quality was outstanding throughout the classes today, cattle were well turned out and a credit to the exhibitors. My champion was a stylish cow showing dairy strength, with lots of capacity and oozing milk today.”

Standing reserve to her in a reverse of the National Show line up was the junior champion Churchroyd Peggy 19 also from the Collins family. This milking heifer calved in May and is by Nejay Prince 4, out of the Attwell Atom daughter Churchroyd Peggy 14. Currently giving 30 litres a day she was reserve interbreed champion at Cheshire Show and champion at Stafford Show.

“The heifer that stood reserve has a fabulous udder and has a bright future ahead of her.”

Richard Baynes stood reserve junior champion with the second prize heifer in milk Marleycote Songstress 17. Sired by Palmyra Tri-Star Reality she is classified VG86 and out of the Ex91 scored Marleycote Songstress 8, a Morwick Sand Ranger daughter.

In the remainder of the classes Mrs Wilkes took the red rosette in the maiden heifer class with Kidstones Gentle 3, by Disgol Madonnas Prince. Born July 2013 she is out of the VG85 classified Jerom daughter Churchroyd Gentle 58.

Top of the line in the in-calf heifer class was Mrs Wilkes’ March 2012-born Churchroyd Lucky daughter Churchroyd Amanda Red 10.

Winning the class for cows in calf and due in the next three months was Marleycote Princess Jill 24 a 10 year old cow from Richard Baynes. Classified Ex92 this Carrousel Regiment Red daughter is out of the VG89 classified Marleycote Princess Jill 15, a Winbrook King Vic daughter.

Richard Baynes also won the junior cow in milk class with Marleycote Olive 16, a Hunday Major daughter. This VG86 scored second calver is out of the VG88 classified Marleycote Olive 11, a Kingsdale Libby’s Rebel daughter.
