Continuing her winning ways – Millburn Must Have is crowned Cappamore Show Supreme Champion

//Continuing her winning ways – Millburn Must Have is crowned Cappamore Show Supreme Champion

Cappamore show was held on Saturday 17th August in Portnard, Cappamore, Co. Limerick. The show, which is going from strength to strength, was celebrating its 65th anniversary. At the helm of the committee is their dedicated secretary Paddy Ryan. Paddy and his son Sean (MC in the cattle rings) are well known in Limousin circles with their pedigree Sliabh Felim herd (this year a homebred bull Sliabh Felim Mourinho topped the Premier sale when he sold for €11,000).

A wonderful display of cattle across all breeds competed in over eighty classes. The Limousin section was judged by John Jennings of the Glencarr pedigree herd based in Glenamaddy. John was very complementary of the quality of cattle presented to him. Taking the champion title and continuing her winning ways was Millburn Must Have Et from Richard O’Beirne. Must Have stood as Supreme Reserve Overall Champion at the 30th National show (held in Tullamore on the 11th August). This November 2017 born heifer is a daughter of Wilodge Fantastic (VTI) and Richard’s outstanding Mas Du Clo cow Millburn Bobby Dazzler. Not stopping there this outstanding heifer was crowned Supreme Champion of Cappamore Show (she was competing against the Champions of all the beef breeds at the show) – a formidable achievement justly deserved by this cracking heifer.

Standing in Reserve was John McInerney’s remarkable Neuf daughter Foxhillfarm Naughtybutnice. Born in January 2017, Naughtybutnice has Wilodge Fantastic and Sympa in her back pedigree.

The first class of the day was the Inter Breed Calf class for both male and females calves born on/between 1st Sept. 2018 and 31st Dec. 2018. Judging this keenly contested class was Declan McKenna, Clogher, Co. Tyrone. This class was won by Richard O’Beirne’s Millburn Nightingale Et, an embryo daughter of Wilodge Fantastic and Millburn Bobby Dazzler (she is a full sister to show champion Millburn Must Have Et).
