For a third year in a row, William Smith, Oldcastle took the 2014 supreme interbreed beef title with his cow, Millbrook Ginger Spice. Having lifted the prestigious title for the past two years, William returned to Balmoral last week with Ginger Spice but this time brought her early January born calf by Brookmill Fearless at foot. She claimed the overall Limousin title earlier in the day and then took to the ring to battle out the prestigious interbreed award where she made it three years-in-a-row. This is an exceptional achievement by any breeder and is in fact, William’s fourth consecutive Interbreed title. He won his first title back in 2011 with the three-year old homebred heifer Millbrook Celine, a Greensons Giglo daughter out of the well-known cow, Millbrook Ulla (she was reserve Limousin champion at Balmoral in 2009).

The victorious Smith family

Now three and a half years old, the newly crowned Balmoral champion, Millbrook Ginger Spice, is a Wilodge Vantastic daughter out of the homebred dam, Millbrook Baby (a Brookmill Usefull daughter). She has a fantastic showing record having won the overall female championship at the 2012 Limousin Derby and the 2013 supreme title at the National Limousin Show in Tullamore along with the overall interbreed titles at Balmoral for 2012, 2013 and 2014.
