June 20, 2021 The Scottish Showcase 14th-20th June 2021

Shows such as the Royal Highland have long been staple events for many, and their absence has been sorely missed over the last year. The Scottish Showcase sought to remedy this, by bringing traditional-style shows to an online-only audience, with only competitors attending in-person. Several spectacular Charolais animals were shown over the course of Tuesday 15th June 2021, with entries across four classes.

Maerdy Morwr – Overall Champion & Continental Beef Interbreed Pairs Champion

The day’s Overall Charolais Champion was none other than 5-year-old MAERDY MORWR, who also went on to win the title of Overall Continental Beef Interbreed Pair Champion. This phenomenal bull was exhibited by AJR Farms of Ellon, Aberdeenshire, who had purchased the bull from breeder Mr D E Evans in 2018. Morwr was sired by the popular Maerdy Dynamite, and his dam is Maerdy Fee, a daughter of the French-born Victorieux.

Tophill Roxanne – Best Female & Reserve Overall Champion

Standing reserve to the Charolais Champion was Best Female TOPHILL ROXANNE. Roxanne was a recent acquisition for exhibitor Mr T Atkinson of Cumbria, who purchased her from breeder Mr A J Stott in February 2021. This stunning young heifer was born to Hackleton Hetty, a daughter of Mulroog Alpine, and was sired by Hackleton Largerlout.

The final title to be won by Charolais animals was the Continental Beef Interbreed Pair Championship. First place in this competition went to the pair of HARESTONE MAMMAMIA and the aforementioned MAERDY MORWR. Mammamia was bred and exhibited by R & N Barclay of Insch, Aberdeenshire, and was 1st in her class in the preceding judging. She was sired by Maerdy Dublin, and her dam is Harestone Brigitte, a daughter of Harestone Ronsard.
