The Baby Beef championship at the English Winter Fair has been claimed by the super British Blue heifer Dashing Lady exhibited by local commercial showman Robert Miller.
This is considered to be one the most prestigious fatstock shows in the run up to Christmas, and attracts entries from right across the mainland.
Dashing Lady is a daughter of Dafydd D’Ochain and out of a Limousin x British Blue dam. She tipped the scales at 340 kilos. Judge Paul Tippetts described her as an exceptionally classy, stylish heifer.
The heifer was shown to perfection by 13 year old Yorkshire-based Luke Wilkinson. He was also at the halter the week previous when Dashing Lady notched up the Baby Beef Championship at Thirsk Show.
