Thomas family take the championship for the third year

Paul Thomas and his family from Berkshire took the championship for the third year at the Royal Welsh under the eye of judge David Grant from the Ardmore herd in Aberdeenshire.  This year with French senior bull Idefix, born August 2013 sired by Uvay out of Cerise. Idefix picked up the senior bull, overall male championship and supreme championship, much to the delight of the Thomas family who run the Samoht herd. Idefix previously won the supreme championship at the Blonde national show held at the Royal Three Counties show in June.

Reserve champion was awarded to Doncombe Indika who stood junior champion in 2014 at the Welsh as a yearling, from Sue and David Knight from Bristol. Indika took the red ribbons in the senior heifer class before lifting the trophy for best female. Out of Doncombe Boheme sired by Rodleigh Voyageur, Indika was born January 2013.  Junior male champion was Doncombe Lacoste sired by Doncombe Armani born April 2015.  Senior cow Doncombe Celine from Sue and David Knight born November 2007, sired by the  French bull Nielson just pipped last year’s champion Doncombe Flora to the ribbons.
 
Junior cow Kinaston Grey Lace from Roy Kinnish, Shropshire won the red ribbons in the M.C  Davies class, sired by Doncombe Sebastian born July 2011. Grey Lace took the junior female championship at the Welsh in 2013.
 
In a strong intermediate heifer class, Nantygelli Jaycee took the judges eye. Sired by Dodimead Gipetto born March 2014 from exhibitor and breeder Stephen Pegington from Monmouthshire. This intermediate heifer took the judge’s eye so much so that he awarded her the South Wales member’s cup for the animal that stood out to the judge on the day,  Which also led her to being reserve female champion.
 
National show junior champion, Doncombe Let It Go born May ’15 won the maiden heifer class. Sired by David Knight’s stock bull Doncombe Coolibah, stable mate to half-sister Doncombe Lavender Lile born April ’15 who stood second in the class. Together they won junior championship for Doncombe Let It Go and reserve for Lavender Lile.
 
The Davies family took the title in the teams class followed by the Thomas family.  The society is very grateful to Agri Advisor Solicitors for their generous sponsorship and to David Grant for travelling the distance to judge.
 
The weather was glorious and a good week was had by all.  Click here to see more photos on our facebook page

About Blonde

The Blonde d'Aquitaine breed has been established in the UK for over 40 years and continues to gain much respect from commercial farmers be they suckler producers or dairy men.

The breeds principal attributes are ease of calving and excellent growth rates, terminating in a carcase with a very high killing out percentage and an exceptionally high ratio of lean meat to bone.

The breed is widely distributed throughout the UK and Northern Ireland and thrives well in both the harsher climes of the north and the sunnier south.

The society was founded in 1971 to improve and promote the British Breed.
