The first UK Dairy Day at Telford saw an entry of 21 milking Dairy Shorthorns come in front of judge John Gribbon. Taking the championship ribbons in a high quality line-up was the junior cow Irthingvale Watzon Tulip from Graham and Barbara Bell. Sired by Drisgol Watzon she is out of Irthingvale Rebel Tulip, an Irthingvale Lillian’s Rebel daughter.   Fresh at the end of July in her third lactation she was shown giving 45kg a day and stood champion at Oswestry Show earlier in the year.   

John Gribbon commented: “My champion was a handy winner, I admired her dairy qualities throughout and particularly her well attached udder.”  Standing reserve to her was Rob Kite’s heifer Cotonhall Lady Barrington 2. She calved in April at 22 months old and is currently giving 31kg. This Sir Ridgedal Rustler Red daughter is out of the Innisfail Prince of Diamonds sired dam Rodway Lady Barrington 29. She has been undefeated in her class both as a calf and now in milk having been reserve champion at Newport and reserve interbreed heifer at Nantwich Shows.  “I am looking forward to seeing this heifer as she gets older. She is a very well balanced heifer and won the strongest class,” explained Mr Gribbon.  The Collins family stood honourable mention with their second place junior cow Churchroyd Gentle 87. In her second lactation this Churchroyd King Kong daughter is out of Churchroyd Gentle 75, a Raypel Lindio Red daughter. Three weeks fresh she is giving 42kg and was champion heifer at the South West Dairy Show 2013. Winning the mature class was the sixth calved Rodway Red Rose 36, a Kingsdale Lilly’s Rebel daughter from Neil and Rachel Madley and Rob Morgan. Classified Ex91 she is out of Rodway Red Rose 19, a Wreay Red Duke daughter.
