The final East Anglian Regional Show of the year with Belted Galloway Classes was held on August Bank Holiday Monday and as always proved popular.

The rain held off and sun shone for this lovely one day show held in the grounds of Blickling Hall. There was a great entry of 19 animals with 16 bought forward from six breeders on the day for Judge James Stoyles to consider, James manages the Surrey Wildlife Trust’s Wisley herd of Belted Galloways.

2023 Best of Breed Winner of the John Coxford Memorial Cup went to Waveney Velvet, a 2021 heifer sired by Waveney Harnser.  Reserve best of Breed went to Millbrook Arnie a 2021 born bull sired by Southfield Sonny Boy.

Special mention to breeders Lewis Gidney and Livi Colton who helped on show day, we look forward to welcoming them with their own Belted Galloway cattle to the regional shows next year. Also well done to Debbie Hall for venturing into the show ring for the first time (of many)!
