Photographs: A brilliant day at Balmoral


We had a fantastic day over in Northern Ireland yesterday at the Balmoral Show, with the sun shining all day which always helps. Society President Alex Sanger was judging on the day and was very impressed with a great show of cattle, including a magnificent class of heifers of 19 in total. Alex’s Champion for the day went to James Porter’s Carlhurlie Epic, by Skaill Dido out of Carlhurlie Epea. We’ll have a full report from the day to share shortly, but in the meantime, here are some of the great photographs we captured of the day for you to enjoy.
