For the first time this year we exhibited at the Royal Norfolk Show, ahead of the summer national Aberdeen-Angus show to be held there in 2020.

Our senior cow, Tofts Polly Perkins L777, who is owned in partnership with her breeder Playfair Farms, took the reserve female championship. Also, she was a member of the winning native group of five and the interbreed beef group of three along with her calf at foot, Melview Perfect Partner.

The icing on the cake happened when we received the award from HRH Sophie, The Countess of Wessex.
