We enjoyed a busy and successful day at Border Union on Saturday picking up two champions and two reserve champions. Halbeath Kim K416 stood female champion and reserve overall under judge John Fleming from the Stairhaven herd. This 2010-born Idvies Elmonarch daughter is out of the Halbeath Knight C069 daughter Halbeath Kim F289 and joined the herd last October when she was purchased at the Halbeath dispersal. She was shown with her March born heifer calf at foot by Duncanziemere Edwin J311.
