DENIZES BULL IS THE ‘FULL MONTY’ AT STIRLING SIMMENTAL PRE-SALE SHOW
The atmosphere is growing at Stirling, with the Simmental show taking place this afternoon, judged by Chris Martindale, of the Forsdale herd, St Martins, Shropshire.
The crowning glory went to the Supreme male and senior champion Denizes Monty 21 from MA Barlow & Sons, Leyland, Lancashire. No stranger to the showring, this January 2021-born bull was awarded the junior championship at the Highland show in June. His homebred sire is Denizes Hamish, and his Dam Denizes Trixie-Belle 6th, is a daughter of the 21,000gns Auchorachan Wizard.
The reserve supreme male, was another Lancashire bred bull, JH & VG Wood’s intermediate champion Popes Matchmaker. Bred out of Popes Whispers Della, who goes back to the 9,500gns Banwy Wonderboy, this 18-month old lad is sired the 10,000gns and Agri Expo junior male champion Denizes Impressive.

Mr Stronach went on to claim the junior championship award with Islavale Mint, an April 2021-born bull by the above mentioned Corskie Highlander and out of Islavale Amber, an Islavale Echo daughter.
The Reserve Junior champion was the class eight winner Keeldrum Midas from David Lowry, Newsteadings Farm, Lanark. This April 2021 born is entirely homebred being by Keeldrum Gambler and out of Keeldrum Rebecca.
The days female champion is Popes Nelly’s Mia, an April 2021-born heifer from JH & VG Wood, Dutton, Lancashire. Sired by the aforementioned Denizes Impressive, she is bred out of Popes Nellys Ilia, who goes back to Swingletree Emporor.
