Armagh Show played host to one of the most eagerly anticipated championships in the show calendar.
Masons ‘Star of the Future’ heifer contest drew in a large entry of dairy female calves from across the country.
The man with the unenviable task of choosing a winner from the high quality entries was David Boyd from the renowned Glaslough Holstein herd. David is no stranger to the judging ring and after much deliberation he picked John Berry’s heifer, Skybrook Doorman Lola as winner of the class. This September born calf is a powerful heifer for its age, showing all the right characteristics to win the class.
David’s second choice was Glasson Jordie Kandie Kane. This is a home bred animal from the Glasson herd of Philip and Simon Haffey and led by Lily Haffey. This was a January born heifer.
The third place heifer came from the same yard. Isla Haffey’s Glasson Jordy Kandie Apple. This was also a January born heifer.
The competition was strong and Mason’s would like to thank all exhibitors who took the time and made the effort to ensure this event was successful. They look forward to seeing how these heifers progress and perform in their herds in the years to come.
