Once again, Devons dominated the cattle lines at another of our principal south west agricultural shows. Judge Mr Richard Dorrell had good numbers of quality Devons in all classes, including some particularly competitive heifer classes. First win of the day went to Messrs Heywood & Hurds Whitefield OReilly who also took the Male Championship, with Junior Bull Champion, Eastyard Fitzroy 2nd in Reserve. The Female Championship went to Mike & Danielle Cowells Eastyard Herd, with Eastyard Camelia 4th, winner of the Senior Cow class, taking the Female Champion title, with their yearling heifer Eastyard Milly 2nd in Reserve. This pair proved unbeatable, being the judges choice for Breed Champion and Reserve Breed Champion. The Group of Three was won by Philip & Caroline Gays Bagnell group of three very even heifers, and the Pairs was won by Eastyard. Breed classes were swiftly followed by the Interbreed where Eastyard Camelia 4th continued to impress, being the Judges choice for Interbreed Reserve Native, Exhibitor Bred Champion. The second day of interbreed judging proved to be another successful day for Mike & Danni Cowell, with Judge, Mr Richard Bartle, putting up Eastyard Milly 2nd as his Reserve Native Interbreed Junior Female Champion, and Eastyard Fitzroy 2nd his Reserve Native Interbreed Junior Male Champion. This pair were then crowned Interbreed Native Pairs Champions. A great advert for our breed, a grand day for the Eastyard team, and one that must have been pleasing for Clive Thornton whose Thorndale bloodlines of Assirati and Fitzroy were responsible for siring all the Devon Champions and Reserves at Bath & West.
