2018 Royal Ulster Show was a great success for our team of 5 Panmure 1 Henry progeny all making their show debuts. Taking the Supreme & Female Championship was the 20 month old in calf heifer Starlet P2. A heifer with great conformation and style her dam is an excellent Dyanmite daughter. Starlet N23, a 2 year old full sister to Kentucky Kid stood second to another Henry daughter owned & bred by B & G Watson in the Senior heifer Class, with 3rd place going to our Junior Heifer Starlet P9, a maternal sister to Ferrari & Handsome, all successful ai sires. In the Junior Bull class our entries lifted 1st & 3rd in the class with Playboy finishing 1st. (see For Sale Page) Not to be out done by his herdmate, Perfection went on to lift the Native & Reserve Overall Beef Interbreed Performance Class the next day. We also lifted 2nds in the progeny pair and group of 3.

At the NI National Show, we took a small team of 3, Perfection was Reserve Supreme Champion and later in the day won the Interbreed Beef Bull Championship. Starlet P9 took 3rd in a big Junior Heifer class and teamed up with Perfection to win the Progeny pairs class. Our 3rd entry Partner took 2nd in his class to the Male Champion on the day.

At the NI Calf Show our team of 3 bulls all making their debuts walked away with 4 firsts, Senior, Reserve Senior, Reserve Junior, Male & Reserve Male Champion. Rival won the September/October bull class before being tapped out Senior & Male Champion. A combination of our last 3 stockbulls (Upgrade, Henry & Dynamite) he is definitely one for the future and has exceptional figures (see For sale). Winner of the second class and the Reserve Male Champion was Rudolph, the youngest bull in the class, a heavy muscled Upgrade son, his Dynamite dam Starlet G16 was also a prize winner at the NI Calf Show in 2010 and has bred very well for us. Winning Class 3 was Real Good, one of an excellent set of ET calves from Dainty N11, a daughter of Henry and a full sister to Pounder who sold at 11 months to Ai Services He is sired by NBG 69T The Wonderer. Real Good & Rudolph also took first in the pairs class, the biggest class of the day.

At the 2019 Royal Ulster Show our team was led by the 13 month old Real Thing, who took the Junior Bull class and Male Championship. Sired by NBG 69T The Wonderer his dam is a full sister to Pounder and Rawhide who recently sold for 6000gns. Real Thing was winner of the best bull calf in last years herds competition and his full brother was Reserve Junior Champion at last years calf show. Following just behind him in second place in the Junior Bull class was Royalty, a 16 month old son of Nobility, stockbull at Rempstone Herefords. These pair teamed up with Dainty R19 to win the group of 3. Immediately after the groups we claimed second placed in the progeny pair class with Real Thing and his Moeskaer Salute sired sister Dainty R19, both being out of Dainty N11.

As usual our NI Calf Show team all made their show ring debuts and  they didn't let us down! Taking the top female spot was Starlet S4, a  combination of our last 3 stockbulls (Upgrade, Henry & Dynamite) making her identically bred to Rival last years male Champion. She sold shortly after the show to Cregg Park Herefords to form their new herd. In the Male Section Samson took the Reserve Senior & Reserve Male Champion titles with Superstar taking the Junior Male Championship Samson is a Dynamite son and a genetic full brother to National Junior Champion Royal Ulster 2017 and now stockbull at Baldinnie Hereford in Scotland.
