This year’s show season for Pierrepont Farm came to an end with the All Breeds All Britain Calf Show, held at the Three Counties Showground at Malvern on the weekend of October 18th and 19th.

Being a national, rather than a regional, show means the competition is that much stronger, so Pierrepont did well to win one first, one second and two fourth prizes, among others.

Zoë Clear was helped in the showing of the calves by friends of the Clears, Hannah Garrett and Mathew Limond. Jenny Cooper, who has featured as a handler in our show reports over the past few years, has had other commitments in 2014.

The full Pierrepont Farm results are shown below (“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):
