Good Cornish weather could not dampen spirits at Royal Cornwall Show.  Judge, Mr Malcolm Hurd, enjoyed a full morning judging a quality turnout of Devons.  Both his Champions were found in the Junior classes with AJ Thomas’ yearling heifer, Bollowal Clara 35th winning the Female title and overall Breed Champion, whilst Nigel Barbery’s 2 year old bull, Trebowland Pagan impressed to take Male Champion and Reserve Breed Champion.  Nearly all Devon cattle exhibitors enjoyed a share of the ribbons; Bridgette & Steve Clamp’s cow, Perton Buttermaid  41st, won the cow & calf class and stood Reserve to the Female Champion. Graham Summerhayes took the senior bull class with homebred Rocknell Quarryman and Ian & Angela Poad won the Group of 3.   Interbreed classes, judged by Mr Henry Dart, were the usual highly competitive affair expected of Royal Cornwall.  The Devons made good account of themselves; Jeff Thomas was placed 3rd in the Interbreed Junior Pairs with Bollowal Clara 35th and Bollowal Front Row.  This yearling bull also won the Best Devon/South Devon class.  Trebowland Pagan teamed up with the Clamp’s winning cow & calf to take Reserve in the Best Pair, Any Breed.  Perton Buttermaid 41st also achieved Reserve in the Inter breed Best Cow with natural born calf.  Download a full set of results here
