OMBRELLE SHINES AT ROYAL WELSH ’22

Ombrelle from Bertie Facon of Gentons Pedigree Livestock shone at the hottest Royal Welsh Show on record! The Salers classes held on Monday 18th July 2022 were kindly sponsored by Gamlins Law and the Society were delighted to welcome solicitor, Rachel Wynn Jones to present the prizes.
To mark the comeback of the show following covid restrictions, the Salers had 17 cattle forward, however predictions of soaring unprecedented heatwaves saw a reduced number of cattle present but that was not reflected in the quality of cattle put before Jennifer Davidson, Poldean to judge.

Judge – Jennifer Davidson

Jennifer has been involved the Salers breed since they were introduced to the Poldean herd in 1989. Along with her son and daughter-in-law, they farm at Moffat, in Southwest Scotland and run a herd of 300 Salers breeding cows and a flock of 500 breeding ewes.
Leading the way at the Royal Welsh was the imported cow Ombrelle from Bertie Facon, brought out by Ben Bellew. This Icare sired cow, born in December 2017, out of Energie was placed female champion and then took the overall championship title. Standing second in the cow class was Gwawr Griffiths’ Felin Mona Mai, an Illimani sired cow out of Felin Elisha with her Preenbank Lord Bisto sired calf, Parys Sweetie-Pie, at foot. Felin Mona Mai won the best turned out animal at the show.
