The Champions of Champions puts pigs, sheep, rabbits, horses, cattle and fowl head-to-head. The Norman Sculfer Salver and £250 was won by a Limousin cow and calf, shown by Peter Gooderham, of Gislingham, near Eye. 'The standard of livestock was outstanding and I shall be returning next year,' he added.
