Fantastic show for Bloksdal Charolais
As proclaimed, we participated this year with four catalog numbers and the first animal in the arena on Friday was Bloksdal Taurus (Neptune JC x Bloksdal Jelena). He won his group, young bulls 12-15 months, He was the youngest, but with the same weight (672 kg) as the oldest.
The next animal was Bloksdal Tur Beau (Neptune JC x Bloksdal Mirabelle -ET) in the young bull group 15-18 months. He was third in this. He was also the youngest and has been walking in the field by the cows. He weighed 724 kg.
After that it was Bloksdal Special Lady (Bloksdal Matador -ET V.B. x Bloksdal Milady). She won the heifer group 28-32 months with an impressive weight of 921 kg.
In conclusion, it was Bloksdal Opal (Cristal-DK x Bloksdal Hæmatit) and her calf Bloksdal Unika by Bloksdal Matador -ET V.B. turn to get into the arena. They were in the “cows over four years with calf”. It was a large and strong group, i.a. with the interbreed winner from the National Show this summer, but Opal, who weighed 1181 kg at the show, manages to win the group together with her calf, which weighed 286 kg.
Our three winners participated in the honorary prize competition. Here there were 16 animals and 10 honorary prizes to fight for. Here it went absolutely fantastic and all three animals managed to get an honorary prize and even make it into the top six.
Judge Jean-Marc Touillon awarded Bloksdal Special Lady the title of second best individual in the show and thereby also best female animal.
Bloksdal Opal and Bloksdal Unika got second best cow and received honorary prize number five.
Bloksdal Taurus was the second best young bull and received honorary prize number six. He is by the way for sale.
On Saturday, Bloksdal Special Lady was to represent Charolais at the interbreed competition.
There were 13 animals in the arena for the competition and she was judged to be among the three best. She unfortunately did not win, as she was overtaken by a Grauvieh cow with calf, but we are very proud of the shared second place, i.a. because Special Lady is of own breeding, on both the mother’s and father’s side.
Finally, we would like to thank TM enterprice, Denmark’s Charolais Association and Nordea for the honorary prizes, as well as say thank you to everyone who helped make the days at this year’s Kimbrerskue some good days, we at Bloksdal Charolais have at least enjoyed all the days in Aars. A special thank you to the people who helped us during this year’s show. We would like to congratulate everyone on their prizes and placings.
