British Blue Cattle Show
It was another super day for the British Blue Cattle breed at Chelford last Saturday, upon the occasion of the 60th National Show and Sale to be held at the Centre.
The morning's Show was watched by a huge crowd, which bode well for the following Sale, and pre-sale expectations were exceeded many times throughout.
It was the Supreme Champion in the Show which topped the trade at 6,900 gns. Tapped out by the judge, John Laight of Lincolnshire, Trencrom Icarus was shown by his breeder Gail Ellis, of St Ives, Cornwall. Sired by New Close Colonel and out of the homebred cow Trencrom Ellie Ellis, this powerful black and white bull had excited plenty of pre-sale interest, and eventually sold to H Hitchcock, Belper, Derbyshire
