I took the Show team to the Royal Cornwall Show (6-8th June) and had success in the ring as well as a great social time catching up with friends in the west of England! Kaprico Donato was male champion and the junior heifers/bulls were well placed in their classes. The Royal Cornwall is one of the great traditional true agricultural shows where many farmers attend for several days in order to carry out business/purchases.
I flew north to the Royal Highland Show later in the month to watch the Limousin judging on the opening day. The classes were strong and very competitive – and it was good to see a Westcountry heifer Foxhillfarm Gracie doing so well.
The weather has been warm and sunny – as a result we have been very busy irrigating potatoes. Cereals are looking well but in need of water , similarly the maize.
