BLONDE d'Aquitaine-infused cattle impressed at the annual Bridgetown Agricultural Show's trade cattle judging last weekend.

Judge Neil Foale, Primaries South West, favoured the Blonde cross cattle in all three classes.

A 438kg Blonde d'Aquitaine cross steer exhibited by Luke Blechynden won the best single vealer on the hoof class, followed by a nine-month-old 441kg Blonde d'Aquitaine cross heifer exhibited by Uranongo Blondes, Bridgetown and a 409kg Black Simmental from Camden Hill Grazing.

Uranongo Blondes claimed first place in the best pen of two vealers class with two nine-month-old Blonde d'Aquitaine cross steers weighing 415kg and 417kg.

Two Simmental steers weighing 492kg and 441kg exhibited by ND & BJ Holdsworth finished second in the class, followed by Camden Grazing with two Black Simmental heifers weighing 376kg and 374kg.

In the cow and calf unit judging, John Bignell took out first place with a Blonde d'Aquitaine-Simmental-Friesian first calving female with a Limousin calf at foot.

Reenmore Grazing's Simmental-Angus-Friesian 12th calving cow with a Angus calf at foot took out second place, and T Watts was third with a Chargrey seventh calving cow with Black Simmental calf at foot.

Uranongo Blondes ranked first for the most points in the competition, followed by Mr Blechynden and Mr Bignell in second and third place respectively.
