CHAROLAIS JUDGE – Mr Archie MacGregor, Allanfauld Farm, Kilsyth, Glasgow
SPORTSMANS Highness, a two-year-old heifer from Boden and Davies, Stockport, took the supreme championship at the Farmers Guardian-sponsored National Charolais Show hosted by the Livestock Event.
Home-bred, by Maerdy Express and out of Sportsmans Debutante, she was Charolais junior female champion at last year’s Royal Welsh Show where she will be heading again this year.
Judge, Archie MacGregor, Kilsyth, said she was a terrific heifer with plenty of bone and power, which walked well and was a worthy winner.
Taking the reserve supreme rosette was the reserve female, Balbithan Hersieys, a January 2012-born in-calf heifer by Chunal Dougie, out of Balbithan Sherbet, from Andrew and Beth White, Swanage, Dorset. A winner at the event last year, she has been inter-breed champion at Devon County Show and reserve inter-breed winner at Bath and West and Cornwall shows this season.
Gretnahouse Indian, owned by Alasdair Houston, Gretna Green, took the male championship. April 2013-born, by Lochend Apache and out of Gretnahouse Baywatch, he was a winner at Cumberland County Show. He is from one of the herd’s best female families, with his grand-dam producing bulls which have sold to 25,000gns. He will be sold at Stirling in autumn or spring if not privately before then.
The reserve male championship went to Marne Impeccable, a Janaury 2013-born bull, by Rumsden Fawkes, from Robert and Michelle Tremayne, Helston, Cornwall. It has been male champion and reserve breed champion at Cornwall and Devon shows this year and also took the junior inter-breed bull title at Devon.

July 1, 2013 National Charolais Show 2013
Inaugural National Charolais Show a great success
The first National Charolais Show attracted an attendance of 63 head of cattle at the Livestock Event at the NEC, Birmingham, with Rumsden Gamble TI +41, SRI +42, taking the overall supreme champion title. The show, principally sponsored by Weatherbys and Melton Mowbray Market, included classes exclusively for Breedplan recorded bulls and females born between 1 January 2011 and 31 October 2012.
Two year old heifer Rumsden Gamble, sired by Coley Hamish and out of Rumsden Dice, was tapped out as female and overall supreme champion by judge David Murray, Forfar, Angus, who commented: “This heifer was truly outstanding with great length, stretch and power. She also carried herself really well in the ring and is very feminine – a real cow-maker.”
Gamble, exhibited by Rob Tremayne and Michelle Hanson, Helston, Cornwall, and bred by Rupert Taylor Ltd, Saxstead, Suffolk, had previously taken reserve female breed champion at Devon County Show and female breed champion at Royal Cornwall Show. Rob said: “We were always hopeful for success here but this was never expected. It’s a fantastic day for us and we’re looking forward to the future ahead, both at the local shows later this summer and to the cow that we hope she will become.”
Standing reserve overall to Gamble was male champion Culford Hector TI +27, SRI +31, from Darren and Donna Knox, March, Cambridgeshire. Sired by Holstead Cracker and out of Culford Cherry, this 14 month old was bought as a calf at foot having been bred by C N Flack, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. Judge David Murray said: “He’s a great young bull with an exceptional future ahead – a real good example of the modern British Charolais with great locomotion, topline and clean throughout.”
Darren and Donna were delighted with their win: “We’re over the moon having come here with absolutely no expectations; Hector has done well at shows locally – taking junior male interbreed, reserve breed, and junior continental champion titles at Royal Norfolk Show last week – so to be placed at an event with such a high quality turnout of cattle would have been enough.”
British Charolais Cattle Society chairman Alasdair Houston said: “We’ve had a fantastic day at the inaugural National Charolais Show at the NEC, with entries from throughout England and Wales putting on a fine display of young cattle. The event can and will go from strength to strength and we hope to attract even more entries next year.”
