Bushmills milk producers Iain and Joyce McLean and family certainly had the ‘cream of the crop’ in the dairy section at Omagh’s 176th annual show, winning the Holstein, Ayrshire and Jersey championships, before going on to score a hat-trick in the interbreed line-up.

It didn’t end there when their home-bred third calver Priestland 5235 PS James Rose EX91 came head to the head with the interbreed beef winner and was crowned overall champion of champions at the Tyrone Farming Society event.

Judge Archie Hamilton described the beef and dairy leaders as excellent examples of their breed. “The Simmental bull is exceptional and has magnificent potential ahead of him, but on the day I picked the Holstein cow for her age and experience. She is the perfect example of a dairy cow, has an excellent udder and good locomotion.”

Priestland 5235 PS James Rose is no stranger to the limelight, having won the breed’s honourable mention award at Balmoral Show. She was Holstein, interbreed dairy, and supreme overall cattle champion at Ballymena Show in May, and also chalked up numerous accolades at Ballymoney Show.

Runner-up in the dairy section was the McLean family’s Ayrshire cow Marleycote Sea Lily, a maximum score EX94 fourth calver producing 35 litres of milk daily. Taking the second reserve award was the Jersey champion Fordwich Saturn Genevive, a third calver classified EX91.

Omagh Show also proved to be a memorable day for Robert and Lorna Forde from Tempo, who won the Simmental championship and interbreed title with their nine-month-old bull Mullyknock Gallant ET. He is by Anatrim Bodybuilder, and bred from the 2008 Balmoral champion Mullyknock Princess – one of six cows in the herd. Orkney judge Liam Muir described the home-bred youngster as very smart. “He has great style, character, excellent fleshing ability and super locomotion.”

Runner-up in the beef section was the Charolais leader Ratoary Lennox ET, an eleven-month-old Conval Frank son bred by Sean McGovern from Clogher.

“It’s been a great show despite the rain. I see a lot of NI-bred bulls in Stirling and Carlisle, and they always come to the top. I’ve no doubt these two young bulls are hot prospects for the future.”

Claiming the overall championship plaudits in the hotly contested sheep section which boasted classes for more than 20 breeds, was the Texel leader, a ewe lamb from James Wilkinson’s flock at Cookstown. Catching the eye of Scottish judge Archie MacGregor to take the reserve interbreed award was a North Country Cheviot ewe exhibited by Allister McNeill from Toomebridge. Second reserve honours went to the Lanark Blackface champion shown by Paddy and Veronica Fullerton from Draperstown.

Rain coats, umbrellas and wellies were the order of the day, with people turning out in force to enjoy the packed schedule of events. One of the biggest attractions was award winning country music star Lisa McHugh.

Among the visitors braving the elements was DAERA Minister Michelle McIlveen. The DUP Minister has been a strong supporter of the provincial show circuit since her election in May. “This is my first time at Omagh Show, and it’s the fifth show I’ve attended so far. There is a good turnout of people and an excellent display of livestock, with organisers reporting increased entries in all sections, especially the sheep classes,” she said.

“I really enjoy getting out and about and meeting farmers. I’ve been getting positive comments about the announcements on advanced early payments, and the capital scheme which will offer grant aid to farmers determined to expand their businesses.

“Obviously the Brexit has created uncertainty, but we are looking forward to positive negotiations.”
