Dreams Come True At Allams
After having the most unbelievable year with our team of show cattle in 2013 we couldn’t have written a better ending with our Limousin heifer “Eddie Rocket” scooping the illustrious Supreme Champion title at Allams Christmas.
Allams is the “one” that everyone wants to win, we have tried hard to lift that magnificent trophy for years without any luck!
Our Champion heifer is sired by our stock bull Swarland Eddie, who is breeding exceptionally well. “Eddie Rocket” caught the eye of Scottish judge John Currie who described her as “a truly outstanding heifer, who was a dream to handle”.
There was spirited bidding for her in the sale ring with Barry Gallagher and Kieran McGee snapping her up for £5000. They plan to show her again next year as a breeding heifer, she will then be put into a flushing programme and they intend to sell eggs from her in the future.
Our entire team of cattle fared well in both the show where we had 6 cattle and all 6 cattle recieved a 1st place, and sale rings at Allams where our stock averaged £3300, and we are indebted to our team of helpers who ensured that they looked their very best on the day.
I would also like to thank all customers that pay over the odds to buy the prize winning cattle, I hope they all do well.
