“Khaleesi”, an August ’13 born heifer took the honours at the 8th Borderway Ari-Expo event this past weekend (31st Oct 2014). This tremendous daughter of our very own Swarland Eddie has enjoyed a remarkable year notching up Reserve Champion at Balmoral and Baby Beef Champion at Beef Expo in May, and also Supreme Champion at the Summer Spectacular in August – but last weekends win is her biggest to date as she romped to success in front of a huge crowd.
“Khaleesi” was purchased privately from our herd by Dermot, Gareth and Marc Small, who made the trip to Carlisle with the heifer and were delighted with the Supreme Championship. On the day she tipped the scales at 570 kilos and was shown to perfection by Stephanie Dick.
Congratulations also to another Northern Ireland exhibitor Robert Miller, Moneymore who picked up the title of Reserve Baby Beef Champion. This was for his super heifer “Dashing Lady” who was brought out by youngster Luke Wilkinson. The sire behind this entry is the British Blue Dafydd O Chain.
The Agri Expo show case attracts in excess of 12,000 visitors each year and is considered by many as the leading event for commercial cattle in the UK. With over 250 entries it is a huge accolade for us to feature so highly in the Championships.
