Islanders Bring Home Awards From Maritime Fall Fair

Agriculture, Fisheries, Aquaculture & Forestry

A beautiful autumn weekend provided the backdrop as Prince Edward Island beef producers took their show herds to the Maritime Fall Fair in Halifax recently to compete for top honours and enhance their status as some of the best herds in the region. The judge for this year's beef show was Hugh Ross, an Angus and Charolais breeder, from Innisfail, Alberta, and he awarded the Premier Breeder and Premier Exhibitor banners in four of the five breeds shown to Island herds.

In the Simmental Breed, Spud Island Farms of York Point, Prince Edward Island walked away with both the Premier Breeder and Premier Exhibitor awards. Leading the way was their yearling heifer SPUD ISLAND MISS BLACK 41M who took the Junior Champion and Grand Champion Female rosette. As well, the heifer calf SPUD ISLAND NORMA 45N took the Reserve Junior Champion Female spot. They added to their red ribbon tally with the Breeders Herd and Get of Sire sections.
