The 2010 Senior Limousin Female of the Year and the RDS Limousin Champion of Champions is Milbrook Celine bred and owned by Mr William Smith Oldcastle Co Meath.

 This heifer is no stranger to success having already been the recipient of the 2009 Junior Limousin Female of the Year during which time she won such coveted titles as All Ireland Female Derby winner in Clogher Valley show, Tullamore Overall Breed Champion and Reserve National Limousin Show Champion Milbrook Celine comes with an impeccable pedigree from the highly successful show cow Milbrook Ulla and the renowned UK sire Greensons Gigolo.

2010 proved to be an equally excellent show year, in May at the beginning of the show season Milbrook Celine was crowned Balmoral Reserve Female Champion and she was also  part of the team that won the Interbreed Group of Three title. Tullamore Show was the venue for the National Limousin Show and Milbrook Celine went one better than 2009 when she stood Reserve Overall Champion to her mother by being crowned 2010 National Limousin Champion.

Celine also had a list of wins at such shows as Longford, Virginia,Elphin, Cappamore, Athlone and Strokestown.

With the depth of back breeding along with her style and the long list of achievements to date Milbrook Celine is justifiably the worthy winner of these two coveted awards.
