GENTONS PASHA POLL VICTORIOUS AT GYS

The GYS show committee pulled out all the stops to ensure this major agricultural calendar event went ahead in 2021. Numbers at the gate were capped each day but the show was extended by one day in order to maximise attendance and the number of attractions, whilst maintaining safe COVID measures. The ability to meet people in a more normal setting came as a huge relief to everyone and the sun shone in celebration.

The Salers classes were ably judged by Mr Stephen Maginn from Downpatrick, Northern Ireland. Stephen runs around 60 Salers cows at home under the Lisnamaul herd prefix located at the foot of the Mourne Mountains. Stephen’s pick of the day was Gentons Pasha Poll ET, bred by Bertie Facon and immaculately brought out by Ben Bellew who earned the 2021 Great Yorkshire Show Stockman’s Cup.

Genton’s Pasha Poll ET was victorious, winning the Female Championship and lifting the Bents Farm Trophy, the Junior Championship to take home the Junior Champions Cup and won the Rigel Cordelia Cup for the Overall Championship title. This stylish, red, polled, yearling heifer was Sired by Icare and out of the French cow Gertrude. She also won the Arthur Beevers Cup for the best polled animal at the show. She then went on to joined Bertie Facon’s Genton’s Pablo Polled ET in the pairs competition that lifted the Jock Watson Trophy for the best pair of animals by the same sire.

Angus and Kerry Gowthorpe also had a fabulous week bringing out Approach Farm Pepin a dark red yearling bull sired by Beguin out of home-bred cow Approach Farm Libby. No strangers to the Great Yorkshire Show, Team Gowthorpe were delighted to lift the Male Championship for the Watson Trophy, the Reserve Junior Championship to take home the Dennis White Cup and to win the KW Alternative Farm Feeds Cup for the Reserve Overall Championship title. Angus and Kerry also brought out the Reserve Male Champion Approach Farm Olly a 2019 born bull bred in exactly the same was as the Male Champion being sired by Beguin and out of Approach Farm Libby. To cap their week they also lifted the I’Ansons Trophy for the best group of three Salers owned by the same exhibitor.

Carolyn Fox’s Manor Lane herd also produced the goods with Manor Lane Pandora who lifted the Reserve Female Championship title. Manor Lane Lunar Poll and her heifer calf at foot Manor Lane Pebbles won the cow class and Manor Lane Pebbles also competed in her own right in the junior heifer class and despite giving away at least six months in age to anything else in the class was placed 4th.

The Society would like to thank the Great Yorkshire Show for hosting this event in such difficult circumstances and to congratulate all the exhibitors for a fantastic display of Salers cattle.
