Great Yorkshire-bound

Lilliesleaf farmer and NFU Scotland vice president Rob Livesey’s Salers will be competing at the Great Yorkshire show later this month.

The Firth farmer told TheSouthern: “We have a smaller team (than for the Highland Show) going, we’ll see how that goes.”

He was speaking in the wake of success at the Highland, when champion Salers bull Cleuchhead Compo, pictured, was among his winners which also included best pairs and best junior female.

Rob said: “We had a great show. This bull is one of the best we have bred. His mum is one of our top cows having bred bulls to £7,300 in the past.

“The heifer that was junior female champion reflects a typical female in our herd.”
