GAIL MAKES WAVES AT THE DAIRY EXPO

The 29th Northern Dairy Expo took place on Friday 21st October at Borderway Mart, Carlisle. A strong show of cattle was exhibited before this years judge Giuseppe Beltramino who owns the renowned “Bel” herd in Italy.

The show got under way with a large class of Junior calves led by a handler under 16 years of age. After much deliberation it was Aliann Alexander Miss Lolli owned by JD & JA Holgate and led by Elliott Jackson that was placed first. A January born Golden-Oaks ST Alexander daughter out of a VG89 2nd calved Goldwyn backed by 7 more generations VG and EX. Lolli later received the World Wide Sires trophy for the Reserve Calf Championship.
