After not having had the opportunity to participate in the last two years National Show due to COVID-19, Bloksdal Charolais returned to the animal show in Herning in style.
The best National Show ever for our family!
It did not start so well, we had to leave one of our three registered heifers at home. We therefore participated this year with two heifers Bloksdal Special Lady (Bloksdal Matador -ET V.B. x Bloksdal MiLady) and Bloksdal Piña Colada (Bloksdal Linux -ET V.B. x Bloksdal Liqueur).
For Thursday’s competitions, Special Lady was alone in her group, but the French judge David Riviere still gave her really good characteristics and 23p. She was later to participate in the honorary prize competition. The last heifer in the ring on Thursday morning was Piña Colada. She was in a group with eight other fantastic heifers – arguably the best group on the whole show. Here, Piña Colada manages to become number one, and was therefore of course also given 23p and allowed to participate in the honorary prize competition, which was held later the same day. Here 17 amazing Charolais animals participated and Martin’s heifer Special Lady was placed in seventh place as the third best heifer on the show. Kristina’s heifer Piña Colada did even better, being named the show’s best Charolais heifer and third best Charolais animal overall. This result gave an honorary award to both heifers and in addition they were both upgraded to the magic 24p.
Finally, we would like to thank everyone who helped make the days at the National Show some good days, we from Bloksdal Charolais have at least enjoyed all the days in Herning. We would like to congratulate everyone on their prizes and rankings.
