Newbury Show results

by Rod Kebble

The 2014 Newbury Show (aka the Royal County of Berkshire Show) was held at the Newbury Showground over the weekend of 20th/21st September.

The show season is now winding up for the year, with just the All-Breeds, All-Britain Calf Show (aka the National Calf Show) on the 18th/19th October left in the Pierrepont diary.

Discovery Miles' Jellybean (daughter) and Discovery Fantom's Jenny (dam) winning the Jersey Dam & Daughter class.

Once again, Pierrepont Farm did pretty well in all classes it entered, although we were pipped at the post in a couple of the championships. The table below tells the full story. (“Pierrepont” and “Discovery” prefixes both denote Pierrepont herds. Discovery Fantom’s Jenny and Discovery Miles’ Jellybean are owned by Zoë Clear under the name Stonebridge Jerseys.)
