Rising Stars Beef Shorthorn Calf Show – 12th November 2023

Once again the quality of the calves on show at Thirsk Mart on Sunday was simply outstanding and gave our judge, Mr Andy Ryder, some really challenging decisions. This was more than illustrated when the recent Agri-Expo champion won her class but didn’t make either of the two top spots in the heifer classes. After intense deliberation by the judge Andrew and Emi Thornber weren’t too downhearted when it was another of their heifers, Blackbrook Madeline Tris, that took female champion. Standing in reserve was a newcomer to Rising Stars, Millie Birch, with Highsky Enchantments Empress, well worth the early morning ride up to North Yorkshire.

Adding to their silver haul in the male classes was Blackbrook Taro, a march born Perseus of Upsall son, shown by Emi Thornber. Megan Souter was a well deserved reserve champion with Jodame Tyson Fury, a Jodame Nobleman son.

Then came a very hard to call breed championship with Andy tapping out an all female line up, Blackbrook Madeline Tris with Highsky Enchantments Empress in reserve.

Onto the pairs and there was no stopping team Blackbrook, Madeline Tris and Heathermaid True taking the honours. Jonny and Hannah Gibson from the Whiterose herd were close by in reserve.

Again the young handler section provided some of the most intense and motivated scenes of the show. It really is quite inspiring to see the dedication, commitment and sense of purpose that the next generation of shorthorn enthusiasts bring to the show ring. Three class winners went head to head in the final, Jack Barker, Iona Park and Dylan Mckenzie. A very proud Ian and Aimee watched as Iona got the nod with Dylan in reserve.

However, in a new competition this year, the Rising Stars Beef Shorthorn Summer League, with points being awarded from young handler classes across the summer. Iona’s success on the day wasn’t enough to overtake Dylan, who secured the Moorcock Inn trophy as champion. Iona being content with Reserve champion.
