South Devons Performance Championships

This is the seventh year that the South Devon Herd Book Society is holding Performance Championships in which performance recording breeders from across the country are invited to compete. This technical event is a showcase for Breedplan performance recording South Devon herds, to highlight the importance of Estimated Breeding Values as a tool for breeding selection. This year’s Championships are being held again within the National Beef Association’s Beef Expo in Darlington, and the Society is very grateful to the NBA for providing this venue and for their welcome.

Each class will be judged on inspection of the animals, and on their performance (Quality Beef Index for each bull and Suckler Replacement Index for each female) and will be placed accordingly. From these winners will be selected the Male, Female and Breed Champions.
