Peter Donger secured the overall championship at the Royal Welsh Show today under judge Rob Livesey from the Cleuchhead herd. His champion was Seawell Genie, a 2011-born cow with her March-born heifer calf at foot by Vicote. Genie herself is by Seawell Extra and out of Seawell Connie.
Rob commented on his champion by saying: “I was impressed by the champion, she is a young productive cow with lots of stretch, scale and style. She has a correct young calf at foot and is producing it well.
“The bull that stood reserve is big, powerful and strong and I look forward to seeing his progeny in the future.”
Standing reserve overall was Etna, a French import from Alun Jones. This 2008-born Anjou son is out of Ondee and is on his first show in the UK since being purchased from breeder Gaec Elevage Missiel last October.
In the female championship Nathan Rogers’ Tanybryn Georgia stood reserve champion. She is a January 2013-born Preenbank Gabriel sired heifer out of Cleddau Debbie.
Peter Donger’s February 2013-born bull, Seawell Idris, stood reserve male champion. He is by Casper and out of a French bred dam.
