We have now safely returned home and can reflect on another good show. We exhibited with four catalog numbers, all of which were given good marks by danish judge Søren Hauge.
On Friday, the first animal to be judged was Bloksdal Swarovski (UtrilloMic x Bloksdal Opal). He was in a group with five other fantastic young bulls. It is rarely seen that the quality of young bulls in Denmark has been so high, and in fact the group also included the later overall Champion for Charolais. Swarovski was fifth in the group with 22 points, as unfortunately he was not going well for the assessment. He was otherwise fine with both weight and size. We later sold Swarovski to Jan Stistrup from Hobro at the show. We hope that Swarovski and Jan will be a good match, wish you luck and thank you for the deal.
The next animal in line was Bloksdal Special Lady (Bloksdal Matador -ET V.B. x Bloksdal MiLady). She was in a difficult group with six other good heifers. Difficult because Special Lady was the youngest, and the others were up to three months older. Fortunately, Special Lady did well and won the group with 23 points. She was therefore later to participate in the honorary prize competition.
The next was Bloksdal Rosabelle (Glasgow x Bloksdal Mirabelle -ET). She was in a group of nine good heifers, where there were like three that stood out. Rosabelle was among them. She got 23 points and was also later to participate in the honorable mention competition.
The last animal in the line was Bloksdal Mirabelle -ET (Vaillant x Anabelle) with her calf Tur Beau after Neptune (I love you x Fabtazia). She was in a grup with two other large cows with calves. She came second and got 23 points, but didn’t have to take part in the honorary prize competition, which we are a little confused about.
For the honorary prize competition, there were 21 catalog numbers, which had to be cut down to 11 award-winning animals. Bloksdal Rosabelle was placed as number 12 and therefore did not receive an honorary prize. Special Lady ended up in the final and came in smoke and steam. She got a very nice ranking as number three and second best heifer at the show.
Finally, we would like to thank everyone who helped make the days at the Kimbrerskuet some good days, we from Bloksdal Charolais have at least enjoyed all the days in Aars. We would like to congratulate everyone on their prizes and placings.
