AHCS NATIONAL SHOW 2017 - RESULTS

​​26TH ANNUAL SHOW 2017

On 11th June 2017, AHCS breeders showcased their best Highland cattle at the Mount Pleasant Showgrounds in South Australia for the Society's 26th Annual National Highland Show. Judge Archie McArthur was flown in from Scotland to appraise the cattle on display. Archie is General Manager for the Lithgow Family who own Ormsary Estate in Argyll on the West Coast of Scotland. The Ormsary Estate, where Archie has been employed for 39 years, runs three separate folds of Highland cattle, Ormsary, Carsaig, and Inver. From 1994-1996, Archie was President of the UK Highland Cattle Society and he has judged Highland Cattle across UK and Europe.


Bronwyn Stewart, of Sea Crest Highland Cattle Fold from Flinders in Victoria, took out the double hat-trick, with her black cow Sona Pollach of Sea Crest taking out Grand Champion Female and her red bull Dougal Brogarth of Sea Crest taking out Grand Champion Bull

After much deliberation between the two Sea Crest Champions, judge Archie McArthur awarded Sona Pollach of Sea Crest the prize of Supreme Highland Exhibit of the Show.
