Royal Cornwall Show proved to be a memorable one for the Foxhillfarm team, with both the supreme interbreed and reserve supreme championships claimed by cattle from the team.
Top spot went to Limousin heifer Foxhillfarm Limited Edition, a Kype Interrogate daughter out of Bankdale Elizabeth. She had previously stood first in her class and Limousin breed champion before going on to be tapped out as interbreed champion and exhibitor bred interbreed champion, adding to the array of awards she won last summer and winter.
Reserve supreme was then claimed by Charlotte’s British Blue heifer Rhymil Kylie. Another seasoned show performer Kylie was purchased privately last autumn from Rhys Millichap and is by Gitan Du P’Tit Mayeur and out of Lakeview Dancer. She had previously been reserve Continental champion at Devon County Show last month as well as highly successful last summer.
