A Norfolk farm celebrated the fourth victory in a row as their star heifer secured the supreme beef champion title at the Royal Norfolk Show.
Paul Barwood and Anita Padfield, who keep a herd of Limousin cattle at Fleggburgh near Great Yarmouth, won the interbreed breed title with their three-year-old heifer Burnbank Jenny, with calf at foot.
It follows similar successes at the Suffolk, South of England and Lincoln Shows – but Ms Padfield said the victory in their home county was the most special.
'To win your local show is amazing,' she said. 'This is four in a row, but the Norfolk Show is the one we really wanted to win.
'She has got such presence, and she loves showing. She just sparkles'
