2018 BALMORAL SHOW (ROYAL ULSTER ASSOC.)

Excellent Salers Entry at 150th Balmoral Show (photos by Alfie Shaw)
Salers cattle breeders put forward a high quality entry at the recent Balmoral Show, with a packed ringside of visitors following the judging.
The breed Championship was awarded to Drumlegagh Hamish from the Elliot family, Newtownstewart, Co Tyrone. This rising four year old home bred bull was placed Reserve Champion at the Highland Show in 2017 and has grown on exceptionally well since then.

Supreme Champion – Drumlegagh Hamish

The Royal Ulster Agricultural Society were celebrating it’s 150th Balmoral Show this year, and to mark the occassion the judges for the beef cattle were all ladies. The Salers Society were delighted to welcome Welsh judge Sioned Pritchard to place this section.
Her Reserve Champion came from Pearse O’Kane, Greysteel, co Londonderry with his super two year old heifer Brookfields Eva, bred by G & R Wilson. This choice entry is sired by Brownhall Laurence and out of Moygara Kathryn.
It was a clean sweep in the Junior Championships for the Elliott family who secured both the Champion and Reserve positions with progeny sired by Drumlegagh Hamish. “Mars” stood in the winning spot, and is out of the Highland Show Champion Drumlegagh Galaxy. His herd mate Mia was in reserve and is out of Drumlegagh Gabriellla.

Junior Champion – Drumlegagh Mars

Reserve Junior Champion – Drumlegagh Mia
