East of England Smithfield Festival
5th & 6th December 2013

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.

Four smart bull calves contested the first class, with Julie Evans' Springwood Sterling taking the red card and going on to be Breed Champion.

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

LINCOLN RED CATTLE SOCIETY FARM VISIT – SUNDAY 14TH JULY

A gloriously warm sunny summers day, saw almost eighty Lincoln Red Cattle Society members, and friends descend on Sir Richard Sutton’s Settled Estates at Stainton Le Vale.

Situated in one of the most splendidly beautiful parts of Lincolnshire, just a few miles east of Market Rasen, the estate covers over 8,400 acres.

Our tour was led by Chris Baylis, Malcolm Vaughan, David Wilkie and Reg Arch.

The Sutton Herd of Lincoln Red cattle was established in 2001.  The herd now consists of 120 cows with progeny .  Currently three Lincoln Red Bulls are on site.  We walked through one herd with some particularly smart bull calves at foot, and inevitably members were pointing out some first class calves with breeding potential.  At the end of the next field we walked up to a superb bunch of heifers, who calmly looked us over, as we did them.
