TOP Hereford breeders Ronald and Robert Wilson of Cowbog, Morebattle, Kelso, have done it again.

The father and son team have won the breed society’s Sire of the Year and Show Herd of the Year titles for 2011.

Robert said: “It’s great, it means we are doing something right. It takes a large number of cattle to receive the accolade.

“We don’t go out and try to win (these titles): it’s because we are out and about at shows and sales – that’s why we won.”

It is the second year Baybridge 1 Atlas (pictured above) has taken the top honours, and the fifth time the Wilsons have won the Sire of the Year.

Show Herd of the Year goes to the herd gaining most points at qualifying shows around the UK which this year included tickets for the Wilsons at the Royal Highland Show, the Great Yorkshire and the Scottish National. It is the sixth time the Romany herd have taken the award.
