The Society’s first outing at the Pembrokeshire County Show

The Society’s first outing at the Pembrokeshire County Show


Last week we attended the Pembrokeshire County Show for the first time – a show that is becoming increasingly anticipated on the yearly calendar.

At the show, the Female and Breed Champion Aberdeen-Angus, and Female and Breed Champion Any Other Native was Melview Kokoa P158 (pictured above). Kokoa is a 3rd Calf 5 year old cow. She comes from the Tegnose K family bred by ex Society president Nigel Hammil. Tegnose Karman, one of the first UK Angus bulls to have huge amounts of semen exported (and a bull that really put UK genetics on the map) is from this cow family.

The Society had a stand for the first time there for the 3 days, which attracted a good amount of interest from new faces looking to make use of Aberdeen-Angus genetics. A big thank you to all involved in a super show.
