An excellent and enjoyable visit to Newlands by the World Shorthorn Conference tour marking the 200th anniversary of Coates' Herd Book.  Representatives from Canada, Uruguay, Australia, USA and elsewhere.

The cattle looked well and the weather marvellous, and we had tidied up for the occasion (!) with the garden much admired; they certainly seemed to be enjoying their trip and we followed up with lunch at Powfoot before the party went on to Chapelton.

Stars of the Future. Congratulations to Duncan Welsh of Westbroad. He took 1st prize in four of the classes with each of his prize-winners being by a Shawhill bull - Shawhill J-A-T or Shawhill Leroy. The day's overall Shorthorn Champion was the very smart Westbroad Paddy, out of Westbroad Abbie and sired by our 12,000gns.
