Born September 2009, this son of Abberton Mr Bionic G141 out of Wedderlie Blackbess G436, herself a Wedderlie Blackboss daughter E950, secured his third breed championship this year at Tullamore alongside his two interbreed championships. The bull is a senior herd sire in the 60-cow herd and has already sired three sons in pedigree herds in the UK and nine sons running in pedigree herds in total. He next eads to the All Ireland championships next month.

Commenting on his champion, Mr Steen said: “This bull is a good blend of traditional and modern Aberdeen-Angus genetics, he’s carrying just the right condition for an aged show bull with good locomotion and breed character.”

Having followed him through in the male championship, Matthew and Rita Goulding’s young bull calf, Goulding Proud Boy, clinched the reserve overall title. This February-born calf is a son of Oakchurch Dirk N131 and is out of Goulding Pamela. He’s previously won his class at Bandon and Nenagh and also heads to the All Ireland Show.

“This bull calf has a great future ahead of him. He’s full of potential and carries tremendous second thigh but is still soft fleshed with a great tail head,” added Mr Steen.

In the female championship it was the winner of the cow and calf class, Laheens Jill, from Carrick On Shannon-based Cathal Duignan, which took the top spot. This four-year old cow shown with her Bunlahy John G bull calf at foot which won the Septmber-born class, is by Aynho Rossiter Eric and is out of a home bred cow. She was champion of her section at Clune Show this year.
