Eadon Raita - SupREME CHAMPION
AlSO: 1st Yearling Heifer, Champion Junior Female Champion & Overall Female Supreme Champion
New Zealand Highland Cattle Society Winter Show was held on Sunday 28 May at Clevedon A & P Showgrounds
on a lovely clear day while the weekly Farmers’ Market was in progress.
Highland Cattle breeders included, along with our Eadon Fold, the Te Mata Hills
Fold and Ardargie Fold, both of which are long time and very successful
breeders and Show contestants.
The winning red rosettes were shared around, as usual, but this year, to our delight, our Eadon Fold walked away with the main prizes: Champion Female (Eadon Fiona Girl) and Champion Bull (Eadon Douglas).
These two animals then competed for the Supreme Highland Exhibit with our yearling heifer, Eadon Raita, who won the Supreme award. While we have now won Champion Bull in four consecutive Winter Shows, we had never before won Champion Female or the Supreme award.
By the end of the show, we were bursting with pride to have won Champion and Reserve Champion Junior Female, Champion Female, Champion Bull and Supreme Champion.
is particularly pleasing, is the while the number of contestants was low, there
were high quality cattle in every class, and anyone who competes against Te
Mata Hills or Ardargie cattle knows it is a true contest.
