Welsh National Show – Pembrokeshire County 14th August to 16th August 2018 – Judge Mr C Martindale
It was a great honour to be invited to judge the Welsh National Show in Pembrokeshire and I would like to thank the Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society for giving me this opportunity. I would firstly like to thank all the exhibitors who had worked extremely hard to get their stock looking tremendous and presenting me with some difficult decisions to make. Everyone made me very welcome and the stewards helped to make the day run smoothly, a most enjoyable day.
My first class was the young April bulls and I was immediately impressed by my first placed bull Cwarre Idaho – a well
fleshed bull with lots of style. In second place was a bull with potential for the future, Crugmelyn Idwal. Third place was a strong bull Crugmelyn Ilky Bar Kid and fourth was a young bull, Cwarre Iowa, with exceptional length and one to watch for
The second class was young bull born after 1st September 2017 and although there was only one in the class, Gwili Idwal
was a sweet calf with a tremendous back end, full of muscle.
The senior cow class had only one entry, a 7 year-old cow, Cefngwlad Cleopatra, who was working hard and doing her calf well.
The junior heifer class was won by Cwarre Rosie’s Hyacinth, a well-balanced calf that walked well and just beaten into second place was Sterling Ellie’s Heidi, a tall calf in natural condition.
The January class was won by Deerhurst Impulse, a very correct heifer which exhibited great presence in the ring. She went on to be Junior & Female Champion. Second was Mainview Jezabel, a big strong heifer but just not as neat as the first. Third was Dyfed Foxy Lady 2nd who just lacked condition on the day.
The April class was won by Crugmelyn Icing Sugar, a super heifer with lots of potential, second from the same exhibitor
was Crugmelyn Icecream, a long heifer that did just not quite have the style of the winner. born on or after 01.09.17 at the Welsh National Show
The calf class was won by Cwarre Rosie’s Ilex, a very sweet young heifer who exhibited herself well on parade. Second
was a very young calf, Cefngwlad Jennie which just lacked the power of my winner.
My Champion was the very stylish bull Cwarre Idaho and my Reserve Champion was the sweet heifer Deerhurst Impulse.
