Border British Blue Calf Show 2017

On Friday 27 January Michael Peile and I attended Harrison and Hetherington Auction Mart, Carlisle to watch the show and sale held on behalf of The British Blue Club, a breed recognised for their importance in the commercial beef market.

David Allen were proud to sponsor the Eighteenth Annual Open Calf Show.  It was a great show with the ringside busy with entries and buyers from near and far to view the show and subsequent sale.

Congratulations to Ian McGarve who secured the Male Champion, Female Champion, Overall Champion and Reserve Champion with Abington Lionel and Abington Liquorice.  A clean sweep and a much deserved result.

Young Handler Champion was presented to Ross Comrie who led Stonebyres Levi around the ring, who was also presented the Reserve Champion.
