Grand start to the Show Season at Devon County

Devon County Show, Breed Champion, Colleton Martion 27th bred & exhibited by S&G Phillips Devon County Show, Breed Champion, Colleton Martion 27th bred & exhibited by S&G Phillips

Several first time exhibitors swelled the impressive ranks of Devons at Devon County Show this year, giving Judge, Mr David Barker, a challenging and enjoyable day’s work.  Devon exhibitors presented the Judge with both quantity and quality.  Simon & Grania Phillips’ successful show campaigner, Colleton Marion 27th stood out in her cow class and went on to take Female and Breed Champion.  Standing in Reserve to her was Jeff Thomas’ yearling bull, Male Champion, Bollowal Front Row.  Stonegrove Livestock took Reserve Female and Male Champions with Stonegrove Snowdrop 23rd and Stonegrove Scorpion.   Bollowal Front Row excelled in the Interbreed classes.  Judge Mr R Harvey tapped him out over the South Devon, in the Best Devon or South Devon Bull class, and made him Reserve Champion Junior Bull (to a Limousin).  Jeff Thomas also took home the Champion’s silverware in the Interbreed Native Beef Pairs class with Front Row and his yearling heifer Bollowal Angel 13th and took reserve overall.  Simon & Grania Phillips Group of Three stood Reserve Champions in the Interbreed beef group.  It was good to see Devons successfully catching the eye of the Judge in the commercial classes; Matt Smith and Jess Maynard won a competitive heifer sired by native bull class with their heifer sired by Eastyard Devonair.  Kean Frain stood 2nd in the steer sired by a native bull class with The Real Deal sired by Eastyard Larkspur, both sires from Mike & Danni Cowell’s Eastyard herd.
