was Joylan Farms’ Joylan Sail K August. Meanwhile, Richaven Sid Squaw 3 stood second to Warnelview Winners Silverwings in the junior three-year old class for Richard Bown.


The senior three year old was a strongly contested class, according to Nico: “The senior three year old class was amazing, any of the top 10 could have won, it came down to the smallest detail to split them.” Top of the line up was the reserve grand champion Richaven Goldwyn Squaw 6 and the honourable mention senior champion Sterndale Atwood Noel stood second.


Abbeyhouse Gold B Ruby 2 stood top of the four year old class for Riverdane and I-Cow Holsteins. Calved in March with her third calf, she is giving 52kg at 4.2%bf and 3.4%p and is classified maximum score of VG89. She was purchased from breeder Andrew Jennings after standing champion at the Great Yorkshire Show 2013 and has since stood second at UK Dairy Expo and UK Dairy Day 2014. Riverdane also stood second with Sahara Sanchez Ambrosia 3 who is owned in partnership with Barmick Holsteins. Leading the way in the five year old class was David Gray on the halter of Blythbridge Blackjack Jackie EX94 for


Blythbridge Farms. This fourth calver was fresh in May and is served back to Doorman. Giving 67kg a day she is projected to give 15,000kg. Unbeaten in her class to date, she was first at Agriscot 2013, first at the Royal Highland Show 2015 and champion at Biggar 2015. Holmland Goldwyn Adeen from Richard Bown and Absolute Genetics stood second in this class.


In the mature cow class standing second to the grand champion Berryholme Infloence Linda 3 was the Bown family’s Richaven Goldwyn Adrienne. The last team in the ring in the Club group of four which is announced in reverse order was the West Midland’s Club with cows from Richaven and Showgirl. The team consisted


of Showgirl S C Sara, Richaven Sid Squaw 3, Richaven Goldwyn Squaw 6 and Holmland Goldwyn Adeen.


The Richaven herd also received the Premier Exhibitor and Premier Breeder banners for most points gained in the show for the Bown family. Winning the prize for the best presented stand was the North Wales Club.


“UK Dairy Day has a fantastic atmosphere, it is a very well organised show and I was extremely impressed with how smoothly the classes ran, as I never waited for a cow to enter the ring. Many show organisers and breeders could learn from this show. I was thoroughly impressed and honoured to be a part of it,” added Nico.


Nico Bons commented that the senior three year old class was the best class of the day.
