Successful South West Scotland Dairy Show 2021

South West Scotland Dairy Show took place at Wallets Mart, Castle Douglas on Wednesday 27th October with 47 head of dairy cattle forward representing Holstein, Jersey and Ayrshire breeds. The show was enthusiastically supported and enjoyed by exhibitors, spectators and sponsors.


Officiating the show was Robbie Scott from the Nethervalley herd, Ayrshire. He certainly had his work cut out, firstly with the calf and showmanship classes, then in some strongly contested Holstein classes.


Andrew Roan from Colvend had a successful night winning both the calf classes, before taking the Calf Championship with his family’s Jersey heifer, Logan Engineer Glitter, sired by Enniskillen Engineer.


Standing reserve champion was the second place senior calf, Tintoview Milio Vray 2 from the Buchanan family, Ballantrae. Her dam is full sister to Swiss Expo 2016 Champion Galys Vray EX94.


In the senior showmanship it was Kacie McCormick who took the red ribbon, while five-year-old Isla Davidson triumphed in the junior showmanship class.


Securing the Ayrshire Championship was Allan Clark from Glenluce on the halter of Fineview Indy. This Fineview Thunder daughter calved her third in April and is due again in March. She is giving 31 litres a day at 5.12%bf and 3.73%p, projected to give 9388 litres.

Reserve went to a non-pedigree entry from W P Callander, Crocketford. This second calver is sired by Rockstar.


In the Jersey Championship, the Buchanan family took top honours with Tintoview Tequila Molly, a second calved Tower Vue Prime Tequilla daughter. On her debut show outing, this young cow is giving 36 litres a day.


Standing reserve in the Jersey championship was the winning heifer in milk, Logan Joel Glitter VG85 from the Yates family, also on her first time out.


Taking top honours in the Holstein championship was Logan Estate Jazz EX93 from the Yates family. Sired by EDG Esther Estate 8132, this third calver recently stood first place four year old at UK Dairy Day, Telford. She has previously stood intermediate champion at UK Dairy Expo 2020 and Super Heifer, AgriScot 2019.


Standing reserve champion was second calver Errolston Brew Master P Ricki VG88 from the Davidson family, Gretna. Fresh in June she is one of five members of the Ricki family to stand reserve champion at the South West Scotland Dairy Show.


The show committee would like to extend their thanks to everyone who makes the show such a success.
