Home from the beef cattle show 2024

Just got home after a few good days in Aars. We would like to start by praising the beautifully arranged show.
As you know, we exhibited with three catalog numbers (four animals). The first animal yesterday (Friday ed.) for the individual evaluation was Bloksdal Unika (Bloksdal Matador -ET V.B. x Bloksdal Opal). She was number one in its group with 23p and received a good grade from judge Mads Bjerregaard. She was later to go to an honorary prize competition.
The next animal in the arena was Bloksdal Mirabelle -ET (Vaillant x Anabelle) with her calf Bloksdal UltraBelle (Glasgow). These also came first in their group with 23p and therefore also had to take part in the honorary prize competition later in the day. Last animal was Bloksdal Opal (Cristal-DK x Bloksdal Hæmatit). A good group of cows where Opal came second, but only with 22p.
For the honor prize competition, there were five honor prizes and Mirabelle with calf came just outside the honor prizes. In return, Unika was awarded an honorary prize and was second best heifer.
Today (Saturday ed.) we took part in the cross-country competition in the show’s “best calf”, where Bloksdal UltraBelle (Glasgow x Bloksdal Mirabelle -ET) came in the top five. The calf weighed almost 400 kg at the time of the show and is approx. seven months. We are very impressed with that, because we don’t have barn conditions which mean that it has been able to go into the calf shelter and get supplemental feed.
Finally, we would like to thank everyone who helped make the days for this year’s Beef Cattle Show some good days, we at Bloksdal Charolais have at least enjoyed all the days this year. We would like to congratulate everyone on their prizes and placings.
