The winter livestock show season has drawn to a close and, with, it the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA) winter cattle and sheep points championships.

The competition is decided by the standings in the livestock classes at four of Cornwall’s thriving prime stock shows held in November and December.

Points are scored by competitors finishing in the top three places in relevant classes held at Liskeard, Helston, Wadebridge (the Cornish Winter Fair) and Truro prime stock shows.

Gwen Renfree from Quethiock near Liskeard was the runaway victor in the sheep section with a whopping final total of 74 points and completed a hat trick of consecutive wins in the competition.

Adrian Rundle from Cubert near Newquay made the top spots for the first time, taking second place with 19 points.

The cattle section championship was secured by Chris Eddy of St Erth who picked up 39 points and marked his fourth win in a row and fifth since the competition began in 2013.

Nigel and Liz Bunkum from Merrymeet near Liskeard finished in second for a fourth year on the trot with 30 points.

Christopher Riddle, RCAA secretary said: "It is really encouraging to see once again the continued support from exhibitors at all of Cornwall’s winter shows in the sheep and cattle sections with the standard of entry as high as ever.

“We congratulate this year’s champions and are already looking forward to a very busy summer of agricultural showing in the region.”
