The 36th Northern Dairy Expo Show once again displayed
some fantastic cattle. This year the exhibitors were under the
eagle eyes of Hefyn Wilson of Tregibby Holsteins.
The evening began with the first of three calf classes. The calf
born on or after the 1st December 2017 was won by Messers
Armstrong’s Febuary born calf, Wolfa Solomon Genevieve, with

rise to the top with Wolfa Atwood Fawn. Second place went to Messers
Horsley with Woodcatt Endure Marie. The final calf class saw Robert
and Elaine Butterfield’s calf take the red rosette, Holben
Solomon Enamel. Leanne Hedges, who was exhibiting at the show for
the first time stood second with Ingleden Goldwyn Charlie.
An impressive line-up of calves stood before the crowd for the
Calf Championship, however Hefyn had no hesitation in tapping out
the junior calf, Wolfa Solomon Genevieve as Champion with Reserve
going to the same prefix, Wolfa Atwood Fawn. Hefyn commented on
the correctness of her legs and the silkyness and openness of the

Moving onto the milking classes, strong entries saw the Heifer
in Milk class split into Junior and Senior. WA & A Booth’s
Feizor Beemer W Wendy stood top of the strong junior heifer class,
a youthful heifer with an exceptional mammary system. Second place
was D M & J Booth this time with Shawdale Moortop Fitz Pledge,
a family that has proven successful for the Booth family on numerous
occasions. Winning the Senior Heifer class was Evening Holsteins,
Evening Seaver Annette, a big powerful heifer that came to the
top of the line quite comfortably. The Heifer Championship saw
Feizor’s heifer taking the title with Evenings Senior heifer

It was an R-E-W Seaver daughter again from Evening Holsteins that
claimed top spot in the Three Year Old class, Evening Seaver Mischief,
a stylish cow with tremendous height of rear udder. Second to her
was Ingleview Jane Jareb from the Butterfields.

There was only
one entry forward in the Four Year Old Class but she did not lack
in quality, Ingleden Camelot Monica, a deep bodied, open ribbed
cow from the Williamson family.
The crowd watched on as the Championship Line up formed across
the ring. Hefyn Wilson commented on the quality of cattle that
stood before him. He had no hesitation in tapping out the Four
Year Old from the Williamson family as Grand Champion and Best
Udder. She showed tremendous quality throughout, a great mammary
system and paraded on a fantastic set of legs and feet. It was
the quality through the udder that gave her the advantage over
Evening Seaver Mischief taking Reserve Champion.
