Jalex calves hit the mark at Clogher
Clogher Show is always regarded as one of the toughest nuts to crack with a strong entry each year, and a number of seriously good cattle out for the first time.
This years show was brilliant with a packed ringside glued to the judging all morning.
We were delighted to win the 2011 born calf class with our little madam “Bootylicious” who is enjoying a super year. She is one of the first calves by Black N Blue Diesel, and we are really pleased with how she is performing.
Another class leader was the flashy “Rockafella” sired by our successful Limousin bull Hightown Cassius. He’s another one of our favourites at Jalex, and we have high hopes for him as he has that “x factor” in our humble opinion! He ended up reserve junior champion at Clogher under english judges Tim Brassington and Joe Lennox.
Our day at Clogher ended up on a high when “Super Trooper” won the beef bullock championship and then went on to collect the reserve supreme award. This bullock which is showed between ourselves and Robert Simpson has had a brilliant track record this season.
Reserve Supreme Champion and winner of the beef bullock title was Super Trooper” from James Alexander & Robert Simpson.
“Bootylicious” was winner of the 2011 born calf class at Clogher show for James Alexander, Randalstown.
Reserve in the Junior Commercial Championship was “Rockafella” from the Jalex show team of James Alexander.
