We always look forward to Strokestown show as it marks the end of the show season and the change of a weekend off early mornings and power hoses.
This years show did not disappoint! Leading the ways for us this year was our February heifer calf, Clonagh Jessie Girl winnng her National title. Jessie Girl is by KIlbride Farm Dragoon out of Knockane Wanda and had previously claimed the top spot in her class at the National Livestock Show this year. Her half brother Clonagh Hercules DD was reserve National champion at Strokestown last year.
We had two heifers in the December/ January calf final taking third and fourth spots. Both by Kilbride Farm Dragoon out of Banwy T-Rex daughters, Jennalynn Honey Duff out of Jennalyn Dee Duffy took third place whilst Clonagh High Heels Dora out of Clonagh Dora the Explorer was placed fourth.
In the February bull calf Clongh Just a Dream was placed third. He is by Kilbride Farm Dragoon out of the prolific breeding cow Cloneygowan Temptress Posh.
