What is your favourite cow of all time and why?


Having seen Idee Lustre when she won the Royal Winter Fair she was a cow I think was almost ahead of her time. She was a really dairy, silky, black cow with tremendous height of rear udder. She wasn’t just a show cow either, she’s bred well and I was lucky to get the opportunity to buy in to the family and still have Honesberie Shottle Lustre EX93 in the herd in her seventh lactation.


Is there an All-Britain Calf


winner that stands out for you? I judged Feizor Jordan Flo 2 at the Lancashire qualifier the year she won and made her reserve champion. I thought she had real potential and purchased a Windbrook out of her – it is amazing what you see when you are judging. Her pedigree has generations of National champions.


What makes a worthy All Britain winner?


Something with that extra something that catches the eye, first impressions are everything. Calves has to have strength and dairy character, strength of spine, width of rump and chest, but need that extra style to stand out. The champion should be noticed as soon as she enters the ring – if she is good enough she is big enough.


Where has been the best show of


dairy cattle you have ever seen? I’ve never had the chance to get to Madison, but I was blown away by the high standard at the Royal Winter Fair. I’ve been four times and the strength and depth in the classes is amazing.


What show would you most like


the chance to go to? I’d really like to go to Madison and Switzerland.
