N.Ireland Irish Moiled National show 2019 hosted by the RBSTNI at Gosford Forest Park

Junior Irish Moiled heifer wins Interbreed title at RBSTNI show

The N. Ireland Irish Moiled Cattle Society’s national show hosted by the RBSTNI at Gosford forest park saw one of the largest turnouts of Irish Moiled cattle out on the show circuit this year. The junior heifer of Nigel Edwards and Michelle McCauley (N & M Moilies), Curraghnakeely Bluebell that had been previously exhibited at six different shows, had never been beaten in her class, continued her winning streak at the national show by clinching the Irish Moiled overall champion title under the well-known breed judge Derek Steen from Scotland, after winning a strong class of maiden heifers and taking the junior breed championship on her way to the national title. Success continued for this young heifer when she won the junior interbreed derby championship under interbreed judge Leslie Hood of Ballymena and was crowned supreme overall interbreed cattle champion of the RBSTNI show 2019 under a trio of breed judges - Derek Steen, Mike Frazer and Leslie Hood.  

Robert Boyle of Millisle had also a very successful day with his stylish homebred Irish Moiled autumn born heifer calf Beechmount Ann, taking the reserve overall breed champion spot as well as winning the calf breed championship and the interbreed calf derby championship.

Judge Derek Steen was full of praise for his overall champion and reserve champion choices which he tapped out of the final championship line-up ahead of the senior champion, a powerful homebred senior heifer, Mountain-view Olivia Jane owned by Brian Mc Crory of Dromore.

The cow class saw a classy homebred cow of Robert Davis of Templepatrick, Ballyvesey Joan with a typically coloured heifer calf at foot awarded first place. Second place went to Andrew McConnell (Glenfeld Irish Moileds) of Broughshane with an in-calf cow, Mullaghcarton Laura bred by Victor Campbell of Lisburn and third place went to Brian O’Kane of Martinstown with his home bred Ravelglen Shelly cow with a heifer calf at foot.

The senior heifer class, a toughly contested class was won `by new breeder Brian McCrory with a very powerful in-calf heifer Mountain-view Olivia Jane, the eventual senior champion. Second prize went to Andrew McConnell with Derrypark Rose, bred by J. Magill of Larne.  Brian McCrory also took third place with another homebred heifer, Mountain-view Ella Louise

The Junior heifer class that consisted of a strong entry was won by the outstanding heifer of Nigel Edwards and Michelle McCauley, Curraghnakeely Bluebell, the eventual junior breed champion and the overall breed champion. Second place went to Alanna Bloomer of Dungannon for her heifer, Beechmount Halley who went on to be awarded the reserve junior breed champion spot. Third place went to Brian McCrory with his homebred heifer, Mountain-view Louise.

The heifer calf class was the largest class of the day and was won by Robert Boyle with a homebred, very stylish, autumn-born heifer calf Beechmount Ann, the eventual breed calf champion and reserve overall breed champion. Second place went to Brian O’Kane with an autumn born heifer calf Carn Tochair Bidi bred by Niall O’Kane of Maghera. Third place went to Robert Davis with a homebred, spring-born heifer calf, Ballyvesey Nesta.

The pairs class was won by Brian McCrory with a ‘heavy-weight’ pair of senior heifers. Second place went to Alanna Bloomer with a stylish pair of junior heifers. Third place went to Andrew McConnell with his senior heifer and in-calf cow pair.

It was a fantastic day for the Irish Moiled breed winning the supreme overall interbreed cattle title a long with other interbreed successes for the Irish Moiled breed which included Robert Boyle winning interbreed derby champion calf with Beechmount Ann,  Rachel Armour winning the interbreed derby pair championship with her stock bull Curraghnakeely Pokemon and maiden heifer Ravelglen Anne and also Rachel won reserve champion in the interbreed calf derby with a heifer calf Beagh Belle and Brian O’Kane won reserve junior interbreed derby with Ravelglen Ruben.
