Leading a small offering of Aberdeen-Angus cattle here today at Builth Wells for an incredibly hot Royal Welsh Show was Glympton Farms, Woodstock, with their senior stock bull Glympton Glespin K470.
Born March 2010, this one is by Rawburn Rock Solid F544 and is out of Glympton Georgina. He’s been a successful bull on the show circuit over a few years now and was recently breed champion at the Royal Three Counties Show.
On the day he was described by judge Brian Clark of the Duncanziemere herd, Ayrshire, as “a big, clean, smooth bull who moves well.”
Standing reserve to him having come through as female champion was Colin Hutchings with Kingsbrompton Edith R316, a January-born yearling heifer by Wall Eastender L873 out of the home bred Edith E381. “She’s a sweet, correct heifer,” added Brian.
Glympton also took the reserve male honours with Ellie Westaway at the halter of Glympton Revolver R962, a January-born yearling bull by Rawburn Black Hawk L261 and out of Glympton Rowena F267. Meanwhile, the reserve female championship went to Julie Williams with her February 2013-born Kingsbrompton Eblackie N144, a daughter of Colin’s herd sire Plasllwelyn Ken H006.
