Charolais bull named East Mainland champion
Clearly delighted with his first championship win, Findley said: “In the morning we lined up the cattle we thought would do well and my step dad, Magnus, his brother Rognvald and my brother Aiden picked their ones and I was left with the bull that ended up winning.”
The bull — which will be going o to be showed at the Country Show on Saturday — was sired by Baillieston Lord out of Baillieston Lydia.
Findley, who has handled cattle at the East Mainland Show for the past six years, added: “It would be unreal to do the double now and win the county. I can’t wait.”
