A duo of terrific Charollais from the Ingram family, Aberdeenshire, took both the individual and pairs interbreed titles at the Royal Highland Showcase event.
The breed and individual champion was a home-bred, one-crop ewe sired by Logie Durno Talisman out of a ewe purchased at the Wedderburn dispersal.
sale. The male champion who teamed up with the breed champion to take the interbreed pairs winner was their purchase from the Worcester Premier Sale in 2020 in the form of the 16,000gns ram Foxhill Va Va Voom was sired by Loanhead Triathlon.
Interbreed judge Blair Cockburn was full of praise for the Charollais entries. “The ewe was faultless and had oodles of class with a tremendous carcass. As a pair they were also faultless, with style and all the conformation we are looking for.”
