Lifting the Championship award was the July 2021 born Springfield Moss.  Sired by Islavale Jabba and out of Cleenagh Eliza, a Drumlone Anchor daughter, this latest title follows on from the recent Stars of the Future Show and where Springfield Moss won both the Overall Senior Championship and Overall Senior Male. 

The judge at Live Scot was Garry Patterson of the noted Aultmore herd at Upper Forgie, Keith, Moray and who commented on his Champion: “Springfield Moss is a good, correct bull with fantastic style and I look forward to seeing what he can achieve in the future.”

Springfield Moss will now be aimed at the February 2023 Stirling Simmental Bull Sale.

Making it a Springfield one-two was the April 2022 born heifer Springfield Nita who lifted the Simmental Overall Reserve Championship.  Again by Islavale Jabba, this calf is out of Springfield Goldie, a Popes Barclay daughter.  Of his Reserve, Garry Patterson said: This is a very  young, sweet heifer full of potential, and just the kind of heifer that I like”.
