The Oxford A & P Show was held at Oxford, Canterbury 31 March 2012. Again it was an early start for the two breeders involved. The James family (Ben More) exhibited two cows with calves at foot. Gary Kennett and Marilyn Montgomery (Piwakawaka) exhibited a pair of yearling heifers.
The Oxford Show enjoyed good entry numbers for both the beef and dairy sections. Limousin enjoyed great success with Ben More Tessa being awarded supreme champion (beef section) for the Show. She therefore had the honour of leading the beef section in the Grand Parade. It was pleasing to see a Judge actually reward longevity in a cow rather than pay lip service to it. Tessa is a rising 14 year old cow that still looks amazing with great feet and a good udder, with a very nice calf-at-foot.
