2012 Show Report

Reed family maintain great record with Lampeter win.

With just one year to go before the milestone 125th annual agricultural show at Lampeter, a highly successful 2012 event took place under ideal conditions at Pontfaen Fields.

Exhibitors and spectators turned out in large numbers, under the presidency of Aneurin Davies, Treffynnon, with excellent support from all aspects of trade and local business.

Supreme from almost 300 horse and pony exhibits was cob mare Nebo Julie Anne, presented by Huw, Lisa, Catrin and Lowri Reed of the Tyngwndwn Stud at Cross Inn.

She was still looking very fresh from her outstanding successes at the Royal Welsh Show where she was placed first of the Section D ridden mares and overall champion out of a total of 123 entries.

Ridden this year by Lowri Reed, who was gaining her first red rosette at the Royal Welsh in a section other than for young handlers, this had been the third year for the mare to win at the Royal Welsh but her first championship.

Lampeter Show is noted for its Highland cattle classes and Annie Spawton and her husband, Geoffrey, who moved to the area from near Liverpool some 30 years ago, said they were delighted to gain a championship award with their impressive two-year-old bull, Orag Sandbach of the May.

Supreme from the beef breeds was a 15-month-old near pure bred Limousin heifer from Berwyn Hughes.

And heading the dairy entries was the February calved Holstein second calver, Prospect Gibson Jouline, from Michael and June Owen.

Winning the busy sheep section was another Royal Welsh entrant, Dyfan Jones, with his Beulah Speckled, and the group prize was taken by Eirlys and Barry Jones with their trio of Hampshire Downs.
