The Champion ribs of beef at the world famous East of England Smithfield Festival,, were put forward by R E Needham & Son.  Once again the Needhams took this prestigious award, this time from a Lincoln Red x Belgian Blue.

Michael Read's Lincoln Red ribs took third in their class.

Lincoln Reds were also represented by Michael Read in the beef section, again ranking high in the prizes.

Mrs Jenny Bolton judged the Lincoln Red Calf Classes, where we had 19 entries; a wonderful turnout.  The quality of all of the calves was very high and were a great credit to the Exhibitors.

Michael Read took 1st in the Autumn bred heifer calf class with Hemingby Bridget R830 and she was later selected Reserve Champion.
