There was a great turnout of Longhorns at the English Winter Fair at the Staffordshire Showground at the weekend. Many congratulations to the Saxby family who took first place in the Longhorn class with the homebred steer Litton Ragtime, born January 2017 and weighing 595kg. He was bought by Ben Stanley for his farm shop for £2.72p per kilo. Tom Mills and Eileen Hallifield also had cattle there, meaning the Longhorns had their own class.
Bertie Facon's calf Gentons Sara was second in the AOB calf class.
The overall Supreme Champion, Messrs A Dickinson & L Powdrill's British Blue x heifer born in June 2017, has a Longhorn grand-dam, so we can bask in the reflected glory of that little fact!
