July 2017 NEWSLETTER

Congratulations to our chairman Craig Hollingsworth and his parents John & Val on their success at the Lincolnshire show in June. They were showing two daughters out of their show cow ‘Midhope Bright Light’.  

‘Midhope Firstlight Tinsel’ won the Overall Championship and collected the Reserve Interbreed the next day, whilst her younger sister ‘Midhope Heavenly Light’ took the Reserve Female Champion spot.

Tinsel continued her run of success at the Driffield show winning the Championship in the any other breed section. Well Done to Katie Steele who brought out her parent’s sweet 9-month-old heifer ‘Weeton Crocus’s Honeysuckle’ to collect a 2nd in a very strong young handlers class, well done again Katie.
