THE Waterford Limousin Stud is rarely out of the ribbons, and this year's Devonport Show was no exception. Stud owner Hayley Sheehan added another interbreed title to her already impressive collection when Waterford Undeniable Design won the Champion Interbreed Cow award. The three-year-old cow then went on to be sashed Grand Champion Interbreed Female. Shown with her five-month-old bull calf at foot, the cow impressed Rohan Hadley, one of three judges overseeing the interbreed classes. ''The Limousin cow in my mind is a clear winner of the class,'' he said. ''She's an outstanding cow showing all the attributes we're looking for in the beef industry.'' Mr Hadley said while the cow had excellent muscling, she also had the softness to enable her to keep adequate fat cover, which would help maintain fertility and make her calves easy-finishing. More show success for the jubilant Day family KAROLIN MacGREGOR SUCCESS: Paul Day with the Supreme Champion Interbreed Ewe at the Devonport Show. Pictures: KAROLIN MacGREGOR The Day family's winning form con- tinued at the Devonport Show where sheep from their Sunnybanks Poll Dorset stud once again went home with a swag full of broad ribbons. Paul and Karla Day's sheep started out well picking up the Champion Poll Dorset Ewe and Supreme Champion Poll Dorset exhibit awards before winning the Champion Interbreed Group of Three class. Their winning ewe then went on to be sashed the Supreme Champion Interbreed Ewe. The same ewe also won the top interbreed title at the Royal Launces- ton Show earlier this season. Mr Day said the ewe, which was a daughter of their top-performing ewe Stephanie, had certainly picked up her mother's winning genetics. The wins finished off what has been a highly successful couple of weeks for the family, after their recent ram sale. The couple sold 25 Poll Dorset at the sale and made an average of $1022 a ram. They also sold 10 White Suffolks and achieved an average of $890. Mr Day said the prices at this year's sale had been fantastic. ''We're absolutely stoked about the season and the sale and I put a lot of it down to the fact we have done well at the shows this year,'' he said. ''People get to see your sheep in the paper and some think they might come along to the sale for a look, and it all helps.'' Mr Day said they made a point of selecting top genetics from both main- land and New Zealand-bred rams to use in their stud's artificial insemination programs each year. He said, while they could not justify spending huge amounts of money buying rams for their relatively small number of ewes, they could purchase semen from those top quality rams.
